When you create spaces, what do you think about? Complementary colours? The division of space in a small office? An intuitive layout for visitors?
What about acoustics? Acoustics is one of the less mainstream aspects of interior design, but it is no less important than fabric swatches and Feng Shui. Simply put, the science of sound is one of the most important parts of designing an interior space.
Decibels, echoes, and vibrations can chip away at even the most focused worker. Students, visitors, and paying customers also benefit from a calm, soothing acoustic environment. And the more employees, students, and potential customers are in your space, the worse your soundscape will be. So, what’s the solution?
Acoustic furniture is a modern solution to an age-old problem. In 2003, founder Paul Furse created Panelscreens to bring and office and acoustic screens to business across the UK.
Since then, Paul passed Panelscreens down to his sons, Jonathan and Thomas Furse. As the demand for softer soundscapes and noise-dampening furnishings grew, so did the business. Now, we stock acoustic and non-acoustic furnishings for every space. Classrooms, offices, reception areas, waiting rooms, libraries, and airports all over the UK benefit from our personalised, tried and tested furnishings.
Our family-run business
Panelscreens is a family-run business, so the lines of communication are never down. We brainstorm new ways to improve our office furnishings and science-proof our products while we’re sitting around the dinner table.

Hear that? It’s the sound of silence
The sound of chitter chatter between colleagues, footfall from guests, and receptionists typing away are all signs of a normal office. But is all this noise good for your employees?
Several studies have found that loud, abrasive soundscapes can have a negative impact on mental health. How can team leaders and students concentrate on their work when there is an endless stream of noise? The simple answer is that they can’t.
By investing in just one acoustic panel, you are building your workforce from the ground up. Our acoustic panels, rafters, and baffles are stuffed full of noise-dampening materials that absorb sound waves on impact.
Free space planning
Space planning is a relatively new concept, but it is important for people who want to maximise their space and create intuitive layouts. Planning is also essential for office managers who want to utilise acoustic furnishings and stop sound waves before they become echoes or annoying reverberations.
For the last 15 years, we have used CAD design to help our customers plan their workspaces. We use accurate, detailed digital crafts to make the most of your space. Just contact our team to book an appointment and reimagine your office, reception area, or classroom.
