We get lots of calls from customers who would like to improve the sound quality in their
offices. Too many times we have heard that the noise from a colleague when they are on the phone is very distracting and they would like to resolve this problem.
Well, CH Workspace do sell proper acoustic screens which will do the job but it’s not as simple as that. The difference in price between a basic cloth upholstered screen, and a sound absorbing screen is significant. At least double would be a good estimation in most cases.
This is because a basic office screen is, in simple terms, a board with fabric over it. The board is solid and has a couple of holes drilled into the base, into which the screen clamps fit.
If you order a pinnable screen, then the board is a soft fibreboard into which pins can be pushed.

But instead of just allowing this natural progression to take place you should consider getting an office furniture professional in to have a look at your environment to see if there are any changes which can be made.
Quite often relatively small changes can have a major effect on the office.
If you have a number of staff in a relatively small area, with plenty of hard surfaces, then background noise is going to become a big problem, and even bigger if your workspace is mainly open plan.

There are many sophisticated office screens systems out there in the market and we are privileged to be able to offer some of the best available, to our customers, but what about the other end of the market, where all you want is just a basic divider to break up a large office or to define the reception area.
The most common offering is literally just a fabric covered board, which sits on a tubular steel foot, and is edged with a thin PVC strip, or linking dumbbell.
They do what they are supposed, and are quite cheap, but they are certainly lacking in terms of style and design.
