Soundproof Plasterboard Reducing the Noise

One way to help reduce office noise is by fitting soundproof plasterboard. So ensure you have the right measuring equipment and get measuring up for size!

When determining how acoustics play a role in your office, it’s important to consider the primary goal of office space: To provide a setting conducive to optimal work performance. As anyone who has worked in a noisy office can tell you, noise levels can effect your concentration and ability to communicate clearly.Therefore, it is essential to take acoustics into consideration when building an office. An office that allows speech privacy and freedom from distracting noises can go a long way in enhancing worker productivity. But it’s also important that the methods used to reduce noise is cost-effective.

Most of the time this consists of outfitting specialized structures, usually a rigid insulation wrapped in fabric, and placing them strategically around an office space. Not only is this method effective, but usually adds a nice aesthetic appeal to an office.In addition to acoustic structures, it’s important to utilize absorptive materials on walls, ceiling, and floors. Attaching fabric wrapped panels to walls is also an effective way to keep sound from reflecting of the walls. On some occasions, companies even use noise ‘masking’ systems where a non-distinct sound is pumped through speakers that eliminates certain frequencies.

External Noise

Let’s try to keep it quiet! As you’re probably already aware a quiet environment is essential for your well-being and safety. But what you may have not known, until now, is that studies have shown a direct link between noise and adverse health effects.

Common health effects associated with increased noise pollution include stress related illnesses. Also high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption (difficulty falling asleep, frequent awakenings, and waking too early), and lost productivity.

Are you fed up with having to listen to your neighbor’s comings and goings or noisy traffic? Create a more tranquil home environment, and reduce your potential for dealing with noise pollution related health effects, by soundproofing your home’s exterior walls from the inside.

What Is Noise Pollution?

Noise pollution, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is defined as any “unwanted or disturbing sound”. Unwanted sound is any sound that interferes with daily habits such as sleeping and conversing. As previously mentioned, these sounds can diminish your quality of life and your health!

What Is Soundproofing?

Soundproofing is defined as any method of reducing the ability of sound to travel between point A and point B. This can be accomplished by using acoustical panels, soundproof plasterboard, or another material to both reduce and absorb the noise. Soundproofing is almost always required in recording studios, broadcast studios, theaters, music halls, conference rooms and hospitals.

Protect Yourself from Noise

Acoustical Panels: Acoustical panels help to soundproof walls by reducing noise up to 75 percent. Typically made of porous expanded polypropylene (PEPP), acoustical panels come in a variety of sizes, styles, and thicknesses. You will be pleasantly surprised to find panels in a wide variety of fabrics and a rainbow of colors to choose from.

Extra Drywall: Adding a second layer of drywall over your home’s exterior walls will build up a thick, sound-deadening barrier. Heavier walls with greater mass such as brick and stone are typically more soundproof than their counterparts. You’ll have to refinish and repaint your new drywall to your liking – perfect time to add that accent wall.
