How to Eliminate Echo & Improve Privacy in a Glass-Walled Conference Room



It’s not hard to see why glass-walled conference rooms are popular. They're stylish, sleek, and open up the floor for a collaborative, transparent environment. But there’s one downside to glass rooms that all business owners realize eventually. Glass walls can produce such strong echoes that you might feel like you’re working inside a cave. 

Not only do glass rooms echo, but as your voices bounce off the walls, the rest of the office will hear your conversations. This is not only distracting but may make your staff feel they have little privacy when in the conference room. 

If you recently moved into or built a glass conference room, or if you’re planning to install glass walls, acoustic treatments can go a long way to reduce echo and loud voices. As a commercial AV consultant based in the McKinney, TX area, we’ll share what you should do with a glass office room below. 

Customizing Acoustic Solutions for Different Commercial Spaces

Acoustic Treatments Aren’t One-Size-Fits-All 

We’ve seen it happen many times. A business renovates its office or commercial space, thrilled about the new windows, glass walls, or open layout—only to realize it’s reverberating with echo and reflections. 

Whether conversations are bouncing off the walls or you’re trying to stage live performances, acoustics are an essential component of design. But as rooms vary in width, height, and wall materials, each space requires different acoustic treatments. Foam or fiberglass wall panels may suit some rooms but won’t work in a glass-walled conference room, for instance. 

Let’s examine how various business spaces can improve their sound with acoustic treatments. And if you’re looking for acoustic treatments in the McKinney, TX, area? Contact Texadia Systems here.

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.

Does Your Conference Room Echo?


Here’s How Acoustic Treatments Can Help 

When you’re on a call in the conference room, are you embarrassed by the sound of you and your team’s voices echoing around the room? If you try to conduct video meetings and calls in an echoing room, everyone participating has to strain to hear you through the distracting sound. Recording audio in such a room is a nightmare, and even high-end microphones don’t stand a chance against echo.

That’s no good! Echoing conference rooms are a common problem in many Texas offices, especially in newly built or purchased spaces.

If your Dallas/Fort Worth conference room is echoing, you would benefit from acoustic treatments. We explain what acoustic treatments are and how they work in the article below. And if you’re looking for professional acoustic treatments for your business, contact our team of AV professionals
