The cellular office is based on the principle that members of staff have access to privacy and confidentiality within the organisation.
A cellular office screens off undesirable noise from other parts of the building, but the office itself creates noise that needs to be absorbed. PCs, ventilation systems and printers for example, create a monotonous noise that can be wearing after a while.
An increase in the use of IT means fewer folders and shelves, resulting in a "harder" room from a sound point of view. This increases the need for sound absorption.
Walls between cellular offices must be sound insulated with a minimum value of 40 dB (laboratory value) and 35 dB (field value). These values also apply to windows into busy routes.
- to be able to achieve sound absorption class A and have a greater variety of choices when it comes to integrating installations into the acoustic ceiling.
