Properly planned open workplace acoustics are positively associated with both comfort and productivity. In an open office, background noise can be distracting from talks. By hiding or masking these conversations, an acoustic treatment increases speech privacy by reducing the amount of information that is visible to the listener.

Acoustic Treatment

These open-plan workstations may seem chic and ideal for brainstorming sessions, but they can really be detrimental to concentration and output. The presence of echoes in conference rooms made of glass and drywall can potentially pose a risk to the efficiency of phone or Skype sessions. Important acoustical elements that support worker comfort and efficiency include the combination of soundproofing, absorption, and isolation techniques.

The main source of distractions in an open workplace setting is noise levels that make it difficult to concentrate on the task at hand while listening to conversations going on nearby. Employees often focus more intently on their own task to block out these distractions, but this can wear them out.  

The ongoing epidemic has changed the open office setting and is encouraging more virtual meetings, which are frequently held at each employee's desk in the open area. 


The degree of liveliness and the zone of influence in acoustics are both included in the loudness, which is determined by the amount of sound-absorbing material present in a given area. When adequate, it blocks out the noise of the room, which reduces the sound's capacity to intensify and linger.
