We review the issues and the solution.
Every day many of us work in environments with uncomfortable levels of noise. Excess noise can increase stress, lower morale, reduce productivity and decrease your enjoyment of life. The impact of noise can be quite considerable.
The acoustics of a space are the properties or qualities of a room or building that determine how sound is transmitted within it. Managing acoustics in your environment to improve sound quality brings both physical and psychological benefits.
The Hush family of acoustic lights create a quiet zone by absorbing sound waves in the physical space as well as illuminating the space.
The soft panels trap and absorb certain (mainly mid to high) frequencies of sound as opposed to reflecting them back into the room.
This leaves us with a much more satisfying and comfortable sound level without eliminating noise completely.
The number one disruption in an office is speech noise. In addition, the hard, dense surfaces in the modern office often reflect sound and make it appear louder. It can be very difficult to focus when noisy distractions are all around you, and this can reduce your productivity and make you feel irritable.
Hush not only provides light, but also reduces noise, and controls sound and echoes.
Care facilities in healthcare and aged care can accommodate many people in a constant stream of activity, yet quiet areas to rest and recover are essential to quality of life and health.
Hush lights installed in common areas can absorb excess sound and keep speech noise to a low hum.
Manufactured from 100% polyester fibres (including 65% post-consumer recycled material) the material is safe, non-toxic, non-irritant and non-allergic. Hush is certified low VOC.
