5 Signs That Your Conference Room Needs Acoustic Treatments & Soundproofing


Bring Comfort & Privacy to Your Meeting Rooms 

Companies use their conference rooms for many reasons: interviewing, training, meeting with clients, presentations, lectures, or teleconferences. From private discussions to large seminars, meeting rooms are essential to conducting a thriving modern business. 

But the acoustics in most buildings are far from perfect. If your company’s meeting rooms aren’t soundproofed, you may run into miscommunication, privacy issues, and distractions. 

Whether you’ve recently built a new office, moved into a new location, or realize it’s time to fix a long-standing problem, acoustic treatments and soundproofing can go a long way to improve your office’s sound quality. 

Not sure if your Plano, TX business needs acoustic treatments? We share five signs that you may benefit from them below. And to learn more about commercial technology solutions, explore our blog here

 1. The Room Echoes 

If you’re holding a meeting and your team’s voices are bouncing off the walls, that isn’t “just the way the room is.” Acoustic treatments, like diffusion structures and soft, absorptive materials, can go a long way to scatter and dissolve soundwaves. That will reduce echoes, so your meetings and presentations will sound much more contained.

Fiberglass wall panels, fabric-wrapped foam, soft carpeting, textured walls, and bookshelves are effective ways to combat echo. A professional like Texadia Systems can pinpoint where exactly you need acoustic treatments and how many solutions.

2. You Use the Space for Conference Calls

If you conduct video or conference calls, you’ll want to ensure your remote team and clients can properly understand you. Untreated rooms experience sound reflections, which make voices sound distant and hard to decipher. Glass walled rooms are especially difficult to hold calls in and would benefit from acoustic treatments.

3. You Conduct Presentations & Lectures

In auditoriums and lecture halls, you want your speaker’s voice to be heard loud and clear. Rooms with non-parallel walls and angled ceilings or floors will cause echoes, leaving your audience straining to listen to the presentation. Acoustic panels on the perimeter and ceiling should restore audio to a balanced, clear level.

4. The Room’s Walls Are Thin

Can you hear voices through the walls in your office? Do meetings feel broadcasted to the entire floor? If your conference room has thin or glass walls, your staff may feel like they don’t have any privacy—while the rest of the company puts on headphones to block out the noise. Deadening drywall and dampening materials like panels or drapery can help contain noise inside the room. Sound masking is another option, which involves ceiling-mounted speakers that play white noise to muffle voices. Your team can then be as loud as they want without being heard or disturbing others. 

5. You’ll Be Recording Audio/Video

Recording training videos, meetings, podcasts, or other media requires a stable audio environment that won’t make voices sound too harsh, distant, or flat. After treating your room for acoustics, your recordings will sound professional and polished, so they’re enjoyable to view and watch.
