Acoustic freestanding screens are advantageous as they can be moved, relocated and reconfigured without too much difficulty. Having freestanding and moveable screens means you can use them as acoustic room dividers which is of course less expensive than traditional fixed partitioning. Acoustic freestanding screens are aesthetically appealing as they have been designed and tested by industry specialists. Interesting textures, fabrics and rounded edges usually specified making them a feature across and throughout the interior landscape. These screens have acoustical properties like memory foam, acoustic tested fabrics and are often 50mm or 60mm thick.
Acoustic screens for all office types
Different studies have proven that constant noise can be extremely detrimental to the working environment. In 2014 it was found that employees lost up to 86 minutes a day because of distractive noise. Complaints are also made about the lack of sound privacy often found in modern offices. This can be an extremely difficult issue to tackle as the modern open plan style office can be beneficial in lots of other ways. The best way to deal with this problem is to try and find a middle ground and retain the open, light and natural feel of an open office whilst ensuring that noise is not a problem.
One way to do this is with acoustic office screening. These screens are cleverly designed to absorb large sharp levels of sound and keep volumes to a minimum. They offer an innovative and unique solution to the problem of noise within an office.

Fixing Acoustic Screens
Acoustic panels can be wall-mounted, suspended from the ceiling or, like all other Global Acoustic screen systems, be used as a desk screen or office partition.
Research shows that the best acoustic environment is achieved when sound absorbing materials are applied on both ceiling and walls. Acoustical wall panels made from perforated gypsum increase the efficiency of the acoustical ceilings, as they ensure a high degree of sound diffusion. Sound regulation with acoustic wall panels is particularly relevant in rooms with limited ceiling area, e.g. due to skylight windows, or rooms with very high ceiling height.
GYPSUM ACOUSTICAL WALL PANELS IDEAL IN ACOUSTIC WALL CONSTRUCTIONS:
Using acoustic materials on walls raises the requirements for robustness of the acoustic material. Acoustic wall panels are more exposed to the daily activities of the room’s occupants than acoustical ceilings. And as such acoustic panels on walls must be able to withstand cleaning, maintenance, even impacts. Acoustical wall panels by Knauf Danoline are based on high grade glass fiber reinforced gypsum, which makes them one of the most robust and durable sound absorbing materials for walls.
Knauf Danoline portfolio of acoustic wall panels offers different construction possibilities:
- Acoustic panels for full integration with the partition wall, making the sound absorbing material a part of the partitioning.
- Acoustical linings which can be built onto the existing partitioning as acoustical fields.
- Acoustical add-ons with highly effective sound absorption, especially designed for sound regulation in existing rooms.
