Good office acoustics represent a key element of a thriving office environment that is conducive of high quality work, efficiency and mental wellness of the team. It is, of course, an element that has to be well thought of, planned from the very configuration of the office layout and integrated in its inherent design. The more surfaces reflect sound waves, the more acoustic pollution is created in the workspace, hindering productivity and distracting employees, not to mention diminishing their capacity to focus.
But what if acoustics have been overlooked when the office has been designed? What if the extent of acoustic discomfort has not been fully anticipated or as times have changed, office life and needs have evolved? Is it too late to aim for taking control of sound management in your office and aiming for optimal acoustic comfort? Certainly not. There are numerous solutions for adapting your office to the ever-changing needs brought by the constant changes in our lives, and one in particular offers great flexibility and balances efficiency with adaptability: Acoustic office screens.
Freestanding, fixed on the floor, placed independently or aligning multiple panels together to form a longer partition, acoustic office partition walls help reduce general office noise by absorbing sound and preventing acoustic dispersion. In the same time, they can act as ideal office partition walls that divide an open space office in several zones, provide privacy and enhance focus or create a perfect breakout area that will keep the buzzy conversations from escaping into the rest of the office.
One of our bestselling products for enhancing your office acoustics is the Budget Super Acoustic Office Screen. Built with inherent quality and a robust design, these screens absorb up to 45% of the general office noise and provide multiple choices of usage around the office. You can place them independently as one partition screen held in place by freestanding feet, simply for shielding a workstation, blocking out direct noises and even for creating a neutral and elegant background for client video calls. This type of usage is also ideal for home offices and can act as a productivity booster for home working.

Whether you choose to align more partition screens together and form a solid acoustic partition wall that divides a wider space into multiple separated areas, surround a meeting table with several acoustic dividers, thus creating a mobile meeting booth isolated from the rest of the office, separate the open plan kitchen area from where machinery sounds normally escape into the workspace, or rather combine all these in order to sound-proof your office, the choices should be well planned and based on the particular needs of your office.
