Home

 

The word HOME is a lot more than just bricks and mortar, it is a word that conjures up feelings of security, success, self-expression and comfort. You may ask somebody you have just met ‘Where Is Home for you’?’ and it would most likely encourage an emotional response and feelings of reflection whilst that person thinks of home.

This home may be a single person’s household or harbouring a family, where a range of personalities are displayed in different rooms and is a place where a family may gather around the dinner table or TV as a shielding from everything else ‘’out there’’.

When you enter somebodies home, you are really entering their world – often disconnected from the outside, a place dressed in personal pictures, books, music collections in either immaculately organised fashion or through a more creative chaos, all of which are an extension of that person.

The reason we are talking about what home represents emotionally is that we understand YOU (we have homes too), we understand the pain of intrusion from sound, and our focus is reducing the noise impact it has on your home and you.

 

How we can help

We have taken the right paths to ensure we understand your requirements and have a wealth of experience in dealing with noise at home, which can come in many forms such as; Television, Hi-Fi (and Lo-Fi for the boombox aficionados) daily conversation, footsteps and other noise issues.

Businesses

 

A Business is born out of an individual or a collective of individuals coming together to produce, buy and or sell products which covers goods and/or services - this is a very literal translation of the word.

A more impassioned view of business is that is can often be a livelihood of those who built it, a place where ideas and concepts are shared, a hub of research or even tales of success stories (and of course unsuccessful stories) which are all attributed to the world of business.

A business must provide its employees with a space to be healthy, productive and able to develop beneficial relationships between them, by this we mean to be able to voice opinions, discuss projects and ideas. Without these, it becomes associated with a negative space to work and the level of productivity drops.

An area that is most common in negative acoustics is in the area of Speech Intelligibility, which we have gone into detail in our ‘A Guide to Reverberation and Better Sound’, this can affect communication between your employees, leading to a decreased concentration and production.

 

How we can help

At iKoustic we deal with a range of workplace soundproofing issues daily, often citing a need to improve either a span of rooms, or a singular room for privacy issues, productivity issues or simply being able to understand and communicate with each other in a noise riddled space.

 

Below you will find a range of guides that will hopefully give you some comfort and guidance that something can be done to reduce the noise issues within your business, or, call us on 01937 588 226 – we can help!
