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.
