Carroll’s Office Furniture can provide your workplace with a number of sound management solutions to assist you in achieving a more comfortable and productive workplace for your employees. Unlike a building’s static structures and elements that cannot adapt, sound management systems can vary from location to location as well as from time to time, to adapt to changing work environments. It is also one of the most cost-effective solutions for providing privacy. Common workplace applications for sound management include:
Modern offices are often aesthetically beautiful places, designed with exposed brick or stone, steel and glass, open ceilings, and wide-open views. Gone are the drab, neutral-colored walls dividing the space into inflexible, small corridors, and private offices.
However great these designs are, though, they often leave out acoustics. The result is a beautiful space that is unfortunately also very noisy, stressful and distracting.
With the right mix of tools and acoustic solutions, though, we help solve these noise issues and ensure a highly functional, high-ROI workspace for you!
There are three ways to treat the acoustics of any workspace: the ABCs of speech privacy.
Absorb sound waves with acoustic wall panels or dividers
Block noise with STC-rated panels, partitions, walls, etc.
Cover distracting conversational noise by adding a source of unstructured low-level background sound
Sound masking and acoustic panels can achieve all three.
Several studies on workplace productivity prove that noise distractions are the biggest cause of lost productivity in open workplaces. Noise is now one of the most important factors to limit and control in any workspaces.
Let’s look at what recent studies have to say.

Speech privacy improves workplace productivity and employee engagement and wellness. Ensuring speech privacy in your workplace has high ROI benefits.
The ABCs of speech privacy, powered by sound masking and acoustic panels can improve the acoustic environment of your workspace, with the resulting ROI benefits.
