Shhhhhhhhhh . . . Office Soundproofing

You want your office to encourage productivity; but if the noise level becomes disruptive, it can hinder both performance and morale. There are plenty of innovative and even decorative ways, however, to soundproof your office and to create a more comfortable and collaborative ambiance. Acoustic wall tiles and noise cancelling panels may be the way to go.

Creating Quiet

Your employees are unique; some work best in utter chaos, but most like to carve out a bit of peace and quiet to get their work done. Modular noise canceling panels and wall-mounted acoustic tiles allow you to create quiet where you need it and can add a personalized design pop at the same time. These office accessories muffle sounds and will help keep your office in that sweet spot of productivity.

Noise Reduction Coefficient

When your office environment has a low noise reduction coefficient (NRC), your acoustics are off – they might even be jarring – and your employees’ concentration probably suffers as a result. An environment that is perfectly sound absorbent is said to have a 1.0 NRC – such an environment is considered acoustically dead because sounds don’t reverberate or reflect, and it can be just as distracting as one that’s cacophonous because dead silence creates a claustrophobic feel.  A traditional brick office wall, on the other hand, has the very low NRC of 0.00 or 0.03. For the sake of comparison, the foam on recording studio walls affords an NRC of around 0.80 or 0.90. There’s a lot of wiggle room between the two extremes within which to find a perfect fit for your workspace. Acoustic wall tiles and noise cancelling panels provide high-level NRC buffers; they decrease interference from crosstalk and diminish echo, but they also provide room for the white noise that many employees crave.

Variety and Sustainability

These soundproofing tiles and noise canceling panels come in so many colors, designs, and configurations that you can revamp or punctuate your office aesthetic while you optimize your soundscape. To top it all off, many of these products are 100 percent recyclable, so you can take pride in your green choices.  While there are nearly infinite design combinations to choose from, there is no need to fret the decision-making process; the design professionals at NPG will work with you to make your office everything that you want it to be.
