Choosing The Right Office Screen
Which is the right screen for our office, and how tall should it be?
Choosing The Correct Office Screens
Choosing your office screen height, and indeed, the screen specification, can have a highly beneficial outcome on office productivity by reducing distractions and enhancing ergonomics. Staff will often feel more comfortable, and reverberated noise can be reduced, making it a quieter office in which to work.
But it is not that simple; at each range of heights, there are an enormous variety of screens available, with and without acoustic foams, some are perspex, some can support stationary trays and LCD monitor arms, and others can be fully functional, actually created the structure of the office, including doors and carrying all power and data too.
Each range of office screens or dividers, have their own features and benefits; some are simply chipboard panels covered in a cheap fabric, whilst others have elegant aluminium frames, thin profiles, and feature sound absorbing cores and acoustic foams to reduce reflected noise.
We have been working with office screens and demountable office systems for thirty years now, and have our own experience to draw from as well as the technical expertise of our Partners and Suppliers.
