Noise Reduction

Offices with collaborative, communicative teams are typically exciting, enlivening places. If those offices have open floor plans, they can be even more invigorating, as employees can feel energized by the work they see and hear fellow team members doing around them. However, there are drawbacks to open plan offices, too — especially when specific employees need privacy for confidential work or peace and quiet for intense focus.

Luckily, BFX offer a smattering of noise reduction solutions team members can use to make their spaces quieter and — in turn — easier for them to focus in. Some of the best noise-reducing devices we recommend are soft, upholstered screens like the AudioArt Freestanding Screen, which can be moved to create a partition wherever needed. There are standalone, private noise reduction solutions that can help, too. We sell options like the Motion Meeting Pod, which creates a small standalone space in which two people can meet in private.
