Acoustic Comfort

Study amongst office workers showed that 65% of them are distracted by too much noise.”


The world today is often very noisy. Over half of the contemporary global population lives in cities, surrounded by noise-producing transport, equipment and activities.

Many of us are disturbed by annoying sounds on a daily basis. In Europe 331 million households suffer under noise by their neighbors. Solving the problem brings new acoustic challenges to our every day life.

This brings new acoustic challenges to our day-to-day lives. 

Research has shown that well-designed sound environments in offices or schools help to improve concentration and enable better communication. Learning is more effective and less tiring when students can comfortably hear and understand their teacher. In hospitals, reducing the stress and sleeplessness created by high noise levels helps patients recover faster and facilitates the work of the staff. In our own homes, protection from noises contributes to a sense of security and privacy. 

Aside from direct damage to hearing, unwanted noise can be detrimental to our health in other ways. Additional consequences of noise exposure include cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, headaches, hormonal changes, psychosomatic illnesses, sleep disorders, decreased physical and mental performance, stress reactions, aggression, constant feelings of displeasure and a decreased sense of general wellbeing. 
What’s clear then, is that when we enjoy acoustic comfort and when unwanted noise is blocked and we can clearly hear beneficial sounds – we’re more productive, happier and experience fewer health issues.
