A survey conducted recently by a leading magazine proved that the efficiency of employees take a huge dip when the office or work environment in which staff work is constantly noisy. Many factors like not being able to have clear conversations over the phone or getting disturbed by phone conversations in the next cubicle acts as a distraction which ultimately leads to decreased level of concentration and low quality of work.
The majority of companies focus on putting together great office layouts that enable staff to interact extremely well, however in a lot of cases the acoustic characteristics of the room are often forgotten about and this in turn can end up creating a very inefficient space to work in due to excess noise levels.
Acoustic foam panels fitted to the ceiling or walls has proven to play a major role in cutting down the unwanted noises and increasing the work output from the employees. The current architectural designs shown adjacent demonstrate the best and most cost effective way to enhance the acoustic ambience of the room by eliminating unwanted noise and even echoes.
Too much noise in a room will disrupt the concentration of staff working in this environment which in turn increases stress levels and ultimately downgrades one’s competency. For the people spending 8-10 hours a day in a confined workspace, it is very important to be able to focus on their work and not the conversation or phone call in the cubicle next to them.
The addition of acoustic foam ceiling panels or wall panels provides a cost effective solution to this problem.
Installing acoustic foam panels into the work environment is a quick and easy solution for reducing noises levels and keeping staff happy and productive.
In addition acoustic foam panels can be produced in eye-catching designs that will enhance the architectural appearance of a room. Acoustic panels are installed on the outer part of the walls as they are well designed and very attractive to look at.
A good thing about acoustic material is that it is available in various designs and colors which means that it will enhance the beauty of your rooms along with the eliminating noises.
There are various factors which should be taken care before installing the acoustic panels. First and the foremost task is to find the focal points i.e. where to install them. Computer analysis is the best way to find focal points but it can be a costly process. Cost effective solution is to make the person sit where the sound is intended to reach, and have another person to move the mirror up and down the wall, when, maximum echo occurs, this is where you need to install acoustic panels maximum.
Remember to take caution when treating an entire room, however, as this can make the room sound dead, with not reverberation what-so-ever.
