Soundproofing Using Office Partitioning
26th April 2015Back
Office partitioning is a great way of sound proofing certain areas of the office to ensure sound privacy in the cases where confidentiality is a factor.
Types of Partitioning
You could decide to install acoustic insulation into the partition or maybe install walls made of sound rated plasterboard. Either of these two options will ensure a degree of sound privacy and are great options, especially for conference rooms where meetings will be held. In addition to being highly functional and aesthetically pleasing, they are also relatively inexpensive.
You can also install glass partitioning but be careful as with this option there could be the need for double-glazing in order to ensure soundproofing. Although deciding to use double-glazed glass partitioning may be a more costly option, it raises the amount of sound privacy to a much higher degree since it increases the decibel rating of the glass. Depending on your budget, you could also just install one or two sections of glass partitioning, as doing so will drastically reduce the price of installation and still provide you with a high level of soundproofing and light penetration.
Another soundproofing option could be to remove the ceiling of the area you are partitioning and build the walls directly through the ceiling tiles. If that isn’t an option, you could also just install acoustic insulation above the ceiling to reduce sound transfer.
Should you decide to have partitioning installed in your business, it is recommended that you hire a professional. People without fitting experience or knowledge will have a hard time installing these systems as special tools and equipment is required.
