One of the easiest ways to reduce noise and echo in an office is by blocking large gaps that allow sound to pass through. Plugging the gap beneath your office door with a door seal or sweep, such as the Quiet DoorTM Door Sweep, can help limit noise from entering or escaping your office.

Partitions like the Udderly QuietTM Acoustic Partition are convenient and mobile sound-reducing solutions. Move this partition to strategic office areas to absorb background noise and eliminate distractions.

Foam composites contain special soundproofing technology that maximizes control and blocks sound. Many come with an easy peel-and-stick application for a simple soundproofing solution.

About Kellen Beaver

Kellen has been a member of the sales team for over a decade. Prior to delving into the soundproofing realm, he was a jack of all trades in the service industry, working both front and back of the house jobs to various degrees. This diversity in experience makes it easy to relate to the needs of a large customer base. He understands noisy environments as well as the importance of aesthetics in a space. Adding something that doesn’t fit the look can be intrusive, so knowing that acoustical needs must fit the interior design is something he’s become very well-versed in. Most of this planning comes from working with both the owner/operators as well as their design team and architects. He has been able to adapt his knowledge in the restaurant industry into projects involving schools, office buildings and large medical facilities when the situation calls for it.
