Acoustic Screens & Panels

Widely used in open plan work spaces, office acoustic panels reduce noise and create a more productive and comfortable environment. These panels are designed to absorb and dampen sound waves, minimising the impact of noise on your employees.

Acoustic panels are typically made of porous materials, such as foam, fabric or fibreglass, that have high sound absorption properties. Here’s the technical part!  When sounds hit the panels, the porous material converts the sound energy into heat through friction, reducing the intensity and reflecting less sound back into the space.

Acoustic Screen Design

Acoustic screens and panels come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, allowing for flexibility in design and integration with the workspace aesthetics. Panels can be customised to match your brand colours or office decor, ensuring that noise reduction solutions are visually appealing but also serve their purpose.

How acoustic panels work

Open plan office and workspaces often have hard surfaces like glass, concrete, or hardwood floors that can cause sound to bounce around and create echoes. Acoustic panels help in minimising sound reflection by absorbing the waves, preventing them from bouncing off surfaces and reducing the overall reverberation in the space.

How is sound absorbance measured?

The effectiveness of an acoustic panel is measured by its Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC).

NRC values range from 0 to 1, where 0 indicates no sound absorption and 1 indicates total sound absorption. Sound absorbing panels with higher NRC ratings are more efficient in reducing noise.

Where to place Acoustic Office Screens

To achieve optimal noise reduction, acoustic screens need to be strategically placed throughout the open plan workspace. Panels are typically installed on walls, ceilings, or as freestanding partitions. By covering larger surface areas, panels can effectively absorb sound from different directions and minimise noise transmission.

Overall, acoustic screens play a vital role in open plan workspaces by absorbing sounds, reducing echo, and creating a more acoustically balanced environment. By reducing noise distractions, these panels contribute to increased productivity, employee well-being, and overall satisfaction in the workplace.
