At work we are surrounded by noise all the time. Some sounds are necessary, others are just a distraction.
With more Australian businesses moving towards open plan offices comes the increasing likelihood that your office space will have limited walls and closed offices. Instead, partial height screens and clusters of workstations that allow noises to move freely throughout a space are now the norm.
It’s far from a disaster though that all the acoustic protection we once had is no longer there. If we manage the layout appropriately and make use of some nifty products, overall noise will be dampened and your office environment will be improved.
One of the tools at our disposal to reduce noise levels while maintaining all the benefits of open plan layouts are Mitesco screen panels. These reversible panels are made in Italy and can absorb up to 95% of office noise through the use of a patented variable density layer technology. Mitesco is easily movable and comes in a range of colours. It can be wall mounted or positioned on an aesthetically pleasing stand. It is practical, flame resistant, fully recyclable and can help personalise your office space.
We’ve installed some on the walls in our own offices and meeting room. Come and check them out in our Melbourne showroom.
