Kitchen

A modern workplace often offers staff nutritional food made on the premises.

Acoustics
  • Kitchens require high levels of hygiene and surfaces must be able to be cleaned regularly. Hard floor and wall surfaces are used because they can be cleaned several times a day.
  • Stainless steel work surfaces generate a great deal of noise whilst people are working in the kitchen.
  • Kitchens are often located near the dining room. This can mean that noise from the kitchen disturbs those who are eating.
Ecophon's suggestion
  • Sound absorption class A is required.
