How is it used in practice?
Today’s offices often have the form of open spaces that foster collaboration among employees, but can hinder focus and negatively impact productivity. The lack of privacy in both business and private conversations is also a problem. One solution that is growing in popularity is acoustic booths. They allow you to create a confidential and quiet space for work and meetings. In this article, we will look at the advantages of office booths as a tool to improve working conditions in the office. We will also provide practical tips on how to use acoustic pods.
Why is private space in the office important?
Private space in a company is an issue that is gaining importance in the face of new trends in design. Open, noisy spaces can not only lead to lower job satisfaction and overall well-being, but also affect employee productivity, making it harder for them to succeed in their careers. Without a sense of confidentiality, people can feel uncomfortable and insecure. Consequently, this leads to stress and professional burnout. Private space in phone booths, acoustic pods for one-on-one work or conference booths, guarantees discretion during business calls and a place to focus on your duties or online meetings.
It is also important to provide adequate storage space for private belongings and documents. The attractive hushLock modular cabinets are ideal for both larger and smaller rooms. Locked with a key or combination lock, with the ability to separate the space with modules simultaneously improves privacy and prevents excessive noise penetration.
What is acoustic privacy?
Acoustic privacy means being able to avoid unwanted transmission of verbal information to third parties who may be present in the same place or room. During meetings, this allows participants to share valuable information without fear of leaks.
Hushoffice multifunctional acoustic booths are equipped with insulating and sound-absorbing materials. Many people wonder if there is complete silence and if teammates can hear what topic is being discussed inside? At this point, it should be noted that absolute silence is unnatural and unhealthy for humans. Therefore, sound of about 40 decibels permeates the interior of the booths from the open office. It is heard as a muffled noise that does not interfere with concentration. In the hushHybrid individual work booths, multi-layered walls and an upholstered interior convert 70 dB of noise into quiet ambient sound.
Conversations held in the acoustic booth remain inside the booth
Phone booths and booths designed with Class B and A according to ISO 23351-1:2020 guarantee the confidentiality of conversations held inside. Thanks to their design, they are able to adapt to changing needs.
Modular conference booths – a place for work and creative team meetings
The hushAccess.L modular conference booths are ideal for companies that want to provide a space for employees to discuss confidential and sensitive topics. They are designed to guarantee comfort, privacy and acoustic isolation when exchanging information without fear of being overheard by unauthorized persons. Thanks to its modular design, the booth grows with the company’s growth and the need for larger meetings. Its area can be up to 9 m2 and accommodate as many as 8 people. A major advantage is the absence of external interference. The calmness is conducive to addressing difficult topics and allows for creative brainstorming.
Telephone booths and booths for individual work – ergonomics and comfort
Many jobs require making phone calls to customers or employees in the field. Equipped with a ventilation system and motion-sensing lighting, the hushPhone phone booth provides complete privacy and comfort during such conversations. Office noise does not interfere with concentration, answering questions quickly and hearing the caller clearly. The acoustics guarantee peace of mind and confidentiality of the information transmitted or heard. At the same time, the well-thought-out design with space for a laptop, power supply and ergonomic armrest have a positive effect on comfort and well-being. Blocking out unnecessary external stimuli makes us sound confident, and nothing will escape our attention, making it easier to convince the person on the other end of the phone of our reasons.
Videoconferencing of the highest quality in an acoustic booth
Online meetings have become an indispensable part of remote work and communication between company branches. However, there are often problems with sound quality and visual imperfections, which can affect the effectiveness of the conversation. The hushHybrid acoustic booth creates an environment that allows you to demonstrate during corporate meetings. Thanks to the LED sidebars, the face is well illuminated. The person in the booth looks professional, which adds to their confidence. The booth provides protection from the hustle and bustle of an open office and freedom of conversation by ensuring that others do not hear, even accidentally, any words. Visual privacy is also an advantage – the back panel can be made of frosted glass. Touching on various topics, we feel calm, communicate flawlessly, and answers to even complicated questions come easily, thanks to better focus.
