Partition screens are a popular choice as part of an office or workplace design. One of the most popular choices is the acoustic office screen, which uses acoustic foam to absorb noise. Research has shown that reduced volume levels can result in increased productivity and concentration levels.
In the most recent years with the COVID-19 pandemic, as a UK manufacturer we have seen a shift in the types of screening that have become popular. The screening from 2019 hasn’t always been chosen because of style but more so because of functionality and necessity.
Acrylic and easy clean screen finishes have rocketed into the market. The main attributes are that the divider can be cleaned in some way. Therefore, making the work environment as safe and sanitary as possible.
The differences between the acoustic and acrylic screens are staggering and provide a wide range of contrasting benefits that will suit different sectors and workplaces.
Acrylic screens are available as a clear or frosted finish.
Clear acrylic can be easily cleaned, separates the desk spaces and open spaces effectively, but still provides full visibility. A great option when not wanted to lose light or add any obstructions.
Frosted acrylic can be used in exactly the same way as the clear but adds more privacy. Frosted acrylic isn’t 100% opaque but shadows will be seen through it.
Acoustic foam has been tried and tested and can enhance a workspace and bring the best out of a team. A USP of the acoustic screens are the options available, not just the shapes and sizes but the wide selection of fabric colours.
Fabric choices are important. As screening is a large investment, the wide choice guarantees they will fit with your current office design.
