Acoustic Office Panels - Noise Reduction Myths

As an office cubicle consultant, I frequently get asked about the noise reduction created by cubicle walls. Some years ago, acoustical panels were very popular. They promised to cut down on the noises coming from ther other side of the cubicle wall.

In reality, acoustical panels only cut back about 2% of the noise coming from the other side. The sound waves simply travel up to the ceiling and then bounce right back down to the other side.

If you happen to have exceptionally high ceilings, your partition walls my actually be able to cut the level of noise somewhat more than 2%. However, most office cubicles are installed in spaces that feature standard, eight foot ceilings.

If you do have to spend some time in a cubicle, the best way to cut back on noise is to cover your ears or to invest in some type of noise cancelling device.
