Picture this: you have mountains of work to do, the radio two desks down is blaring and the newcomers in the row behind you won’t stop giggling. The noise is driving you up the wall and it’s so hard to concentrate!
Even the most well-planned office has issues with noise control, especially if it’s an open plan design. The benefits of collaboration and space-optimisation are often offset by noise issues, and it’s not always practical to wear earphones all day long.
Noise pollution is a real concern and it’s not just reserved for those on construction sites; those in the office can be just as affected.
