You may be asking yourself, "How do I soundproof my office?" We recommend using either modular fabric partitions or wall-mounted acoustic tiles to dampen the sound in your workspace. Read on to learn more about the ways acoustic wall tiles can bring about peace and quiet in your office.
While you don't always get to pick where your office is or how loud the people around you are, but you do have control over how loud your workspace gets. If you're working at a desk that receives a lot of distracting noise traffic, consider adding acoustic tiles to the walls to muffle that sound and keep your workspace quiet.
Absorb and Scatter Sound for Maximum Noise Reduction
Productivity suffers in an environment that has a low noise reduction coefficient (NRC) because their acoustics make concentration difficult. While materials such as brick have a low NRC of 0.00 to 0.03, HUSH acoustic tiles have a much higher NRC of 0.70 to 0.75. By comparison, recording studio foam blocks typically have an NRC of 0.80 to 0.90 and a perfectly sound absorbent environment would have a 1.0 NRC and sound acoustically "dead" without any reflections or reverberation. Environments with a very high NRC can be almost as distracting as those with a low NRC because the silence can make an individual feel secluded and even claustrophobic. HUSH acoustic wall tiles are on the higher end of the spectrum, reducing cross-talk interference and reducing echo while still letting in white noise needed to help employees concentrate.
Available in Thousands of Fabric Coverings
Not only do these tiles drastically reduce distracting noise at the office, but they also enhance the look of any workspace. HUSH acoustic wall panels are available in a huge assortment of fabric colors and patterns, meaning you'll be able to create a look you'll love. This means that HUSH tiles are not only functional, but beautiful as well. In the right form, these tiles can become true pieces of art.
These fabric wall coverings contain no fiberglass, making them 100% recyclable. Even if going green isn't at the top of your company's priority list, you can take pride in knowing that the products in your workspace are sustainable and good for the environment.
