Acoustics For Reception Areas

First impressions will always last. As all company’s first point of contact for either personal visits or phone calls is the reception area, this is why it is vital that the reception area provides a good atmosphere. The reception area should support the standards and values of the company which makes it essential that the area is welcoming for all visitors.

As the reception area is frequently telephone intensive, the acoustics in the space will need to be optimised as this will leave a large impact on speech clarity over the telephone. Therefore all reception areas require high acoustic needs to achieve the good quality noise reduction and speech clarity.

Acoustic Solutions for Reception Areas

Reception areas commonly prioritise on wear and clean-ability, so hardwood flooring and hard wall surfaces are often common choices. Our ShushRaft acoustic ceiling range is most desirable for this type of environment, this would provide quality sound solution for the area of concern. To further enhance the areas our ShushPhoto acoustic image panels can be applied with the emphasis given on the company logo or theme. These products have Class A sound absorption so they offer the highest sound absorption results.

Reception areas often have many people speak at the same time, so speech clarity is vital. To fully support a healthy working environment with respect to acoustics, for this we recommend to mount a ceiling with our ShushSky or ShushRafts products with an acoustical island with ShushRafts above the reception desk to give maximum sound absorption. Our ShushLiner can give added additional absorption on the walls making this a great way to enhance the acoustic area.

Examples of our work include a School reception area and a modern office reception area.
