Noise is one of the biggest productivity inhibitors in the modern office. One way to reduce this is with Acoustic Panels. These panels help by absorbing sound as it bounces off hard surfaces like glass and gib board.
Acoustic panels have a rating system called NRC (noise reduction co-efficient) that indicates how effective they will be. The numbers run between 0.1 and 1. Our panels typically are rated at 0.4 for 12mm and 0.8 for 24mm meaning that 0.4 will reduce 40% of the noise that hits the panel and 0.8 will reduce 80% of the noise that comes into contact with the panel.
