How Can I Improve Office Acoustics?

How Can I Improve Office Acoustics?


Just lately, you may have noticed that we have spoken a huge amount on how noise impacts offices workers wellbeing, healthy and productivity, but how can we help improve this issue?

We can clearly see from our research in the 'Noise and Wellbeing at Work' survey, that noise negatively effects workers psychologically, behaviourally and cognitively. Loud sounds and prolonged exposure to certain types of noise can trigger physiologic stress responses in our bodies, whilst laughter, conversations of variable volume and sudden noises are all claimed to be major forms of distraction. 

Sound proofing is often the go to method for helping with acoustics and echoes in the workplace but it is a costly and time-consuming method, whilst acoustic panels don’t always work, but there is a cost-effective solution that increases the acoustic comfort of the building without changing the architectural design. 

Sound Masking

Sound Masking and treatment is an effective method that, when installed correctly, has the potential to bolster acoustical privacy and reduce distracting noises, which in turn helps to improve overall office comfort. Sound masking makes a building appear quieter by raising the ambient noise level in an office environment and making speech less intelligible and therefore less distracting.

Sound Masking helps to create a balanced, comfortable acoustic working environment.

Sound Masking in its raw sound can create a relaxing atmosphere that promotes the overall wellbeing of office workers. It also has the ability to intertwine with natural sounds, creating a completely immersive and calming environment where employees can focus and collaborate naturally.
