Office Problem -- Bad acoustic design
« on: September 16, 2003, 05:32:14 PM »
 ???



Can anyone help me here?



There is a 2-inch gap where the window meets the wall (at a 90-degree angle), because the window is set 2 inches deep into the outside wall and the window spans two offices, so sound travels around that space.  Anyone have ideas on what is possible, given the situation?  We just moved in, and this is how things had been constructed.



If you email me, I can email you digital pictures of the windows.



Thank you,

Kris Waters, Office Manager

Kris,

Yours is a relatively simple problem to solve. You will need enough of the 2" closed cell foam mat to be able to plug or stuff it into the cavity between the two office spaces. This foam will not only absorb the noise from the other office but it will also act as a blocking agent, or a barrier from the noise next door. If you need more information on this foam mat , go to :

Thanks Kris.
