“Yet for all their advantages, most open plan offices still suffer from the distraction”
WALL TILES Wall panel systems not only create an effective acoustic solution, but can also be used to bring colour into a room or used as artwork with a custom printed graphic.
CEILING PANELSAcoustic suspended tiles are ideal for improving the acoustics in buildings without a suspended ceiling. The tiles can be custom shapes, sizes and colour as well as being placed to avoid existing lighting or combined with new lighting.
ACOUSTIC BLINDSVibrasto is a range of acoustic blinds, that both absorb sound and reflect light. This is a colourful solution to reduce both the acoustic and light problems associated with large areas of glazing.
The modern work place is now an open plan arena. The private office is a thing of the past as more flexible working practices have emerged. Yet for all their advantages, most open plan offices still suffer from the distraction of noise.
The challenge we face is not to soundproof the work place. Rather, it is to create acoustically private spaces that are suited to a variety of tasks and workers’ needs. Silence is not golden, in terms of productivity or privacy, as both require their own optimal level of ambient noise.
