Copying and printing room
The copying and printing room witnesses many people coming in and out to collect printouts and photocopies, so occasionally it can host informal meetings.
There are often a number of printers and copiers that create a large amount of noise. The machines are often centrally located so that everyone has easy access to their printouts.
Frequently doors are left open, distributing unwanted noise throughout the office. Both ceiling and wall absorbers should be used in copying and printer rooms in order to reduce noise generated by the machines.
An efficient acoustic ceiling combined with good sound absorbing partitions can make it possible to place printers and copiers in an open plan office.
- to achieve sound absorption class A, reduce sound propagation and lower background noise in the copying and printing room. To ensure speaker support in rooms more than 12 metre long, a reflecting area in the ceiling should be created.
Ecophon Wall Panel
- to absorb much of the sound which would otherwise bounce off the walls and extend around the room.
