Steelcase and Armstrong Introduce Portfolio of Noise Reducing Ceiling Products

Monday 16 February 2009

Steelcase Inc., the global office environments manufacturer, and Armstrong World Industries, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of floors, ceilings and cabinets, today announced a collaboration initiative to market products branded Steelcase by Armstrong that address the problem of noise in the workplace. The first product to be released under this collaboration is SoundScapes(r), a portfolio of acoustical canopies and clouds intended to reduce noise level and reverberation time in open plenum and suspended ceiling environments.
As work is becoming more collaborative and more space is devoted to team and group work, noise levels are rising in open plan environments. In fact, a recent IFMA (International Facility Management Association) survey found that noise is one of workers\' top complaints. And an ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) paper, \"Sound Solutions\", reported that 70% of respondents indicated their productivity would improve if their office was less noisy.
Several recent trends in office design also impact office noise levels: cubicle partition heights are lower with less surface area to block sound; open structure facilities without finished acoustical ceilings absorb less sound; and greater use of under-floor air usually makes buildings quieter, so conversation and other incidental noise is more pronounced.
