Effectiveness of Different Types of Soundproofing in Breakout Rooms

In the world of work, noise often becomes an obstacle to remaining focused and comfortable at work, so companies create breakout rooms. In creating a breakout room, soundproofing plays a big role in preventing sounds that can be disturbing. Several types of soundproofing can be used in breakout rooms, such as:

1. Acoustic Panels, these dampers are made from acoustic foam and can be installed on walls or ceilings to absorb sound, thereby reducing noise and reducing echoes. However, acoustic panels have disadvantages such as being less effective at lowering echoes, having to use several panels for optimal results, and the cost can be quite high but depends on the material and quality of the panels.
2. Thick carpets and curtains, using thick carpets and curtains can absorb sound and reduce noise in the breakout room. In addition, thick carpets can reduce the sound of footsteps and thick curtains can prevent sounds from outside from entering the room.
3. Acoustic foam is a dampening material often used in music and recording studios, but acoustic foam is not aesthetic to place in breakout rooms.
4. Acoustic curtains are special curtains that can absorb sound, reduce noise from outside, and reduce echoes in the room. But these acoustic curtains are less effective compared to acoustic panels.

Creating a quiet and comfortable breakout room requires combining several sound dampeners to achieve maximum results. The best choice can be tailored to your needs. GGS Interior is here to help you create a comfortable breakout room.
