There is truly nothing worse than sitting in an important meeting, only to be distracted by the loud sounds of co-workers that are clearly audible through your office. Not only do you miss important points of the meeting, but it can also make you look unprofessional when your office isn’t soundproof. In order to fix this, make sure that you get acoustic plasterboard installed as a way to keep all of the noise out. Once it’s installed, you will be pleasantly surprised at the difference that it makes.
What Is Acoustic Plasterboard?
Acoustic plasterboard is designed to meet all standard drylining requirements where acoustic insulation is required. It uses noise absorbing technology to ensure that echo and reverberation are minimised and it is made from gypsum board which is not only great at keeping your acoustics in check, but is also fire resistant. Acoustic plasterboard is ideal for partitions, linings and ceilings where noise control is a priority. Many people choose to get a suspended ceiling made out of acoustic plasterboard which is a great way to keep the sound to a minimum in your office. As a result, when you are getting your office remodelled, be sure to ask for acoustic plasterboard so that you won’t have to deal with the loud noises of the rest of the building any more.
Other Ways to Make Your Office Soundproof
Aside from using acoustic plasterboard in your walls and ceilings, there are several other things that you can do to keep your office as soundproof as possible. For one, you can invest in thicker carpeting as this can also help to absorb any noise that may be coming from the floor below you. Believe it or not, you can also find soundproofing paint which you can add on top of your acoustic plasterboard. If you are planning on decorating your office, be sure to look for large plants and couches that are also going to be useful in soaking up a lot of that unwanted and annoying sound coming into your office.
If you find that you have done all of this and you can still hear noise coming through your office, be sure to look for any cracks or holes that may be in doors or walls and are allowing noise to creep in unnoticed.
