How to Soundproof an Office
Improve Office Productivity with Acoustic Solutions
Did you know that poor acoustics in office spaces can be a huge distraction to employees, which can cause production to decrease up to 66%?
You've been asked to look into how to soundproof an office and don't know where to start the search...so, now what? In most cases, acoustical comfort can be improved in work spaces with the addition of acoustical absorption to horizontal and vertical surfaces. Absorption materials placed on barriers that are appropriately impervious to sound penetration will reduce the intrusive noise common in offices. At Audimute, we have worked with numerous businesses in a variety of industries to help reduce these distractions and increase company productivity.
Why are acoustics so important in offices?
The two main reasons acoustics are crucial in office settings are employee distractions and the overall privacy of confidential information. Conversations between coworkers that carry across the office space can get others off-track, cause an increase in stress and can lead to an overall decrease in productivity. In addition to this, it’s much easier for confidential information to be heard through office walls or conference rooms.
