How to reduce noise in an open-plan office?

For employees working in an office space, a noisy workplace can cause distractions, reduce productivity, and even increase stress, ultimately hindering employee morale and job satisfaction.

In fact, employees working in loud spaces are more likely to leave their job within six months, as the lack of a quiet space negatively impacts their productivity and well-being. So, if you or your employees are working in a noisy office space, it may be time to consider the following noise reduction options:

  1. Rearrange your office layout

In some cases, noise can be reduced with just a simple office rearrangement. For instance, by placing desks in groups for each department, you can divide the noise around the entire office. At Abax Kingfisher, we offer a range of workstations that allow you to compartmentalise your workspace successfully.




  1. Implement acoustic wall panels

Sound-absorbing materials can be placed around a room to reduce noise, making acoustic wall panels a wonderful solution for combatting noisy open-plan offices. At Abax Kingfisher, we have a range of acoustic panels that will help you to achieve an acoustically conscious workplace. Installing the right acoustic wall solutions offer a range of benefits, including:

  • Boosting productivity
  • Improving employee wellness
  • Providing privacy
  1. Position acoustic desk dividers

Similar to wall panels, acoustic dividers are an effective solution for blocking out noise. With the use out our acoustic screens, employees can benefit from a quieter and more concentrated workstation, ideal for breaking up large rows of desks.



  1. Install acoustic ceilings

Acoustic ceilings are another way to absorb the noise in a workplace. Take a look at our Classic Ceiling Sound Trap for example, perfect for controlling ceiling noise in any room. Its sleek, modern design will complement your décor, and its easy installation means you can be enjoying quiet, peace and tranquillity in your office.

  1. Explore your flooring options

Hard surfaces, such as wood or porcelain can be unforgiving in noisy environments and can add to the issue. If noise is a problem in your office, carpet or vinyl flooring are both ideal solutions for reducing noise in a workplace.
