How are the cabins built?
The soundproofing level of a booth is not the same depending on the use for which it is intended (translation booth, recording studio, etc.). But in any case what will make the difference between two cabins are the materials that make it up. These have a direct impact on acoustic performance.
What materials are used to make Island cabins?
To form the walls of our Island cabins, we sandwiched three different materials to absorb all the noise. Let's take a closer look at the materials we use.
We use a so-called asymmetrical wall structure. Placed between the wood and the felt, the Métisse®, an acoustic insulator made from recycled textiles, will play the role of a spring and will contribute to the attenuation of noise.
The diagram below illustrates the principle of operation. The first rigid wall reflects part of the noise. Partly absorbed by the insulation, the residual noise will be reflected by the second facing plate. In the end, only a small residual part of the sound emission will cross the 3 layers.
The acoustic cabins of Work With island are all designed using recycled and recyclable French materials. Our desire is to manufacture a product that improves the daily lives of employees while preserving the environment. It is for this reason that our cabin is mainly made of wood, mestizo and felt.
Our Island therefore has a very low ecological impact but will have a strong impact on many aspects of your business. Indeed, it will improve the working conditions of your employees and at the same time their performance.
Our Island cabins are delivered as a kit with a single tool for quick and easy assembly. They are assembled in just 1 hour by two people. The advantage of this type of assembly is that they can be disassembled and reassembled ad infinitum, so you can move it or take it with you as your spaces change.
Why prefer a cabin to the acoustic partition?
Acoustic furniture actively participates in making the open space a pleasant workspace suitable for exchange. But which solution to choose between the partition and the acoustic cabin?
If the acoustic partition is very popular with companies, it is because it is financially accessible. However, the performance in terms of sound insulation of a solid partition (lined with insulating wool) will be low since it is only a wall and not a closed and hermetic space.
They therefore offer limited privacy for your phone calls or meetings while the cabins offer a confidential space while protecting you from outside noise.
Also, partitioning part of your space will transform your open space into a classic office. While the cabins allow you to keep your configuration while eliminating the inconvenience associated with this type of office layout.
In the long term, cabins are also a better investment. Removable and reassemblable, they can follow you during your moves. While the partitions, once installed, are an integral part of the offices.
Even if the acoustic cabin seems to be a better choice in the long term, it is advisable to test them before buying them. Indeed, there are a plethora of cabins on the market but not all are equal. We advise you to go and test them in a showroom, this will allow you to check the acoustics and ergonomics.
