Reducing the noise level in your boardroom & office

What are acoustic panels for offices?

Acoustic panels for offices are acoustic panels designed to be installed on the walls or the ceiling of an office. The acoustic panels will dampen the noise, eliminate the echo and will look like they were designed with the room in mind.

Can a measurement be taken of the noise level in my office?

A decibel reader will measure the noise level, but what most people describe as noise, is actually echo. The decibel reading in a room with acoustic treatment may actually be the same as one without. The perceived excess noise, is the sound of voices reflecting of the hard surfaces in your office, for an extended period of time, not the actual decibel level of the voices.

Why is my office loud?

A room becomes very loud, when the sound of people's voices echo and reflect off the walls, floors and ceiling. In the 80's most offices and conference rooms, had carpet on the flow, and acoustic tiles on the ceilings. The trend now is to have polished concrete on the floor and exposed concrete ceilings.

When we hold a teleconference call, or an internal meeting, it is difficult to understand what is said. Even small sounds are disruptive.

Boardrooms and offices can be very stark and empty. This can cause echo and reverb to the point that sound becomes so muddy that it is hard to understand what people are saying, in the same room. When there is a conference call, the problem is amplified. Read more about speakerphone issues here.

It is embarrassing when my client or prospect is asking why we sound so bad on a teleconference call.

Businesses usually spend from a hundred to five hundred dollars on a speakerphone for their boardroom or office, only to find out that the parties listening on the other side of the call, can barely understand them, due to poor acoustics in the room. A better teleconference phone will only make the echo more obvious, and will accentuate the echo in the room.

Will acoustic panels reduce the noise in an office?

Our Acoustic panels, will reduce the noise in any size of room. You can use our acoustic panel calculator to understand how many square feet of acoustic coverage your room will require.

Should the acoustic panels be installed on the ceiling or wall?

Ideally acoustic panels for offices should be installed on two perpendicular surfaces, at least one wall and the ceiling. The reality is that we rarely get the opportunity to get that kind of coverage. Where the panels are installed, is usually dictated by what we have to work around. For example existing fixtures, pictures, lighting and furniture. Read more about acoustic panel placement.
