Offices are workplaces and as such should provide suitable conditions to ensure the optimum job performance of the people who work there every day.
In addition to comfort and safety, there are other important factors that directly affect the performance of a worker, such as thermal insulation and soundproofing of premises. The latter is particularly important because:
-The noise level in your workplace can directly affect the amount of stress suffered by those who work in it and, as a result, affect their work performance.
– Furthermore, depending on the sound level, there may be other effects, such as physiological alterations, distractions, interference in communication and psychological disorders.
– An office with significant noise pollution normally requires speaking in a loud voice or even shouting, which directly affects the image you give your customers when they come to the office or when you talk to them over the phone.
– The privacy and confidentiality of some of the conversations that take place in an office require that certain private offices and meeting rooms be built with panels and wood panelling that ensure they are properly soundproofed.
It is therefore desirable that the project as it comes out from the architect’s or interior decorator’s studio responsible for the design of your office includes soundproofing with sound-absorbent wood, such as we offer at Spigo Group Wood Projects with our Spigoacustic and Spigotec systems. Normal office soundproofing measures include the installation of wall covering and inner linings, false ceilings and acoustic panels made of sound-absorbent wood.
