Finding Ideal Solutions for an Open Work Space.
Open work spaces make the most of a modern design elements and help to reduce communication silos… but they can also be very noisy. Often these themes are comprised of some combination of glass, metal, concrete or tiles offering large areas of reflective surface and very low sound absorption properties. This type of design in particular creates a perfect platform for all the “noise” related concerns to be amplified.
Finding the right acoustic and decorative solution…it may be easier than you think
One of the biggest challenges with acoustic materials being given their due consideration in design, is that in many cases the importance of the room acoustics is grossly underestimated before occupancy and operation within the space. Sometimes the space is pre-existing and needs to be re-envisioned in order to comfortably sustain the desired acoustic temperment of a room. It may help to consider what benefits you can realize by doing an acoustic tune-up.
- ACOUSTIC treatment provides a better WORKING and LEARNING experience and increases productivity:
Noise has a major impact on productivity: quite simply, people find it difficult to work in a noisy environment. Concentration can drop by as much as 71%c. Absolute silence is certainly not desirable either in most scenarios, as the slightest noise is then amplified. An ideal work environment should strike an optimal balance between sound and silence. Designing for good acoustics depend on compound of factors and elements, such as the reverberation time and how the space is intended to be used.
- It is possible to increase ACOUSTIC INSULATION value without demo of the existing areas:
Architectural felt has natural sound deadening, acoustical dampening, and aesthetic properties that make it an excellent choice for architectural applications. The new felted products possess excellent sound-insulating properties. Comprised of antistatic materials, these materials are naturally resistant to airborne dust, and soiling and therefore can be an ideal choice for a restaurants, noisy public areas or your home office. The range of sizes, shapes and colours available allow for maximum design flexibility and will meet the artistic and aesthetic requirements of your project, whether you choose a standard or custom solution.
These adaptable and versatile products can be attached directly to the surfaces that are pre-existing, be added to desks or back boards, suspended from the ceiling or installed against glass, or simply free standing elements of separation or decor where they will bring maximum benefit.
