ROOM & OFFICE ACOUSTICS
Acoustics in open offices
With a shift from traditional cubicle style workstations to open plan offices, workplace acoustics should not be overlooked. Without acoustics barriers the energy of conversations, phones and keyboard click are amplified, which can lead to a decrease in productivity due to distractions. The first step of the solution is to analyze the situation by measuring the reverberation time in the office space.
Acoustic measurements RT-60
AF consulting has professional equipment from NTi audio to measure the reverberation time in meeting rooms and offices. Reverberation is one of the main acoustic characteristics of a room and influences speech intelligibility. We offer a complete test report before and after the modifications.
What is reverberation time?
Sound produced in a room will repeatedly bounce off reflective surfaces such as the floor, walls, ceiling, windows or tables while gradually losing energy. When these reflections mix with each other, the phenomena known as reverberation is created. Reverberation is thus a collection of many reflections of sound. Reverberation time is a measure of the time required for reflecting sound to “fade away” in an enclosed area after the source of the sound has stopped. Reverberation time is important in defining how a room will respond to acoustic sound.
