It is getting more and more popular for offices to have big open workspaces, to make the most of the space in the room. While it is proven there are many advantages to this style of office layout, with more people sitting closer together, answering phones, and having general conversations, noise levels are increasing more and more every day.
Noise can be one of the most distracting elements in a working environment, which can lead to stress and a less productive work ethic. For most people, having a quiet space is key to a more proactive way of working.
Because of this, it is becoming essential for office furniture suppliers to introduce a range of noise reducing products, to create niches amongst the open-plan office space. Our Acoustic screens are great examples of this. Easily fitted to the top or around your desk, the screens are all highly acoustic with sound-absorbing filling. The front screens are also height adjustable, giving that separation of a workspace, helping you to increase your concentration.
A concern of providing a ‘own space’ in the office, can be that you would need big screens which would start to separate desks and take up more space, therefore losing the open-plan feel. Our Desk top dividers are a cost effective yet stylish solution to this, still keeping the open office feel, but giving some much needed privacy to working, whilst still saving valuable office space.
It is also important to consider other day to day situations like meetings, personal phone calls, or group work which can all call for a separate more private space. Usually Purpose built, fixed rooms are used, however these can be restrictive, taking up more space than usually needed, and causing a feel of being ‘shut-off’ from the rest of the office.
Our Acoustic office pods offer a free standing room solution where little or no fixings are required, and can easily be relocated around the office. Coming in a range of shapes and sizes they can be created to suit all needs whether it be a telephone pod or a larger multi person booth. The acoustic pods can provide the privacy needed for those more confidential conversations, whilst still creating that inclusive feel of the open-plan space without taking up too much room.
