Glass Partitions Acoustic Advice: Our Expertise

Comfortable acoustics can make a working environment more effective and play an important role in employee well being and efficiency.

Optima’s expertise in the effective design and installation of acoustic glazed partitioning is key to many a successful project, and is freely available as part of our service.

Acoustic Experience in Offices and Beyond

Today, clients want and need exceptional performance when it comes to acoustic sound insulation. With the on-going requirements for predominantly open plan office space, there is a growing need for quiet office rooms and meeting rooms with controllable acoustics for confidential conversations to take place. Consequently, the acoustic performance of glass partitions has become increasingly important.

In addition to working in some of the most prestigious commercial office buildings, Optima also has expertise working on acoustic partitioning in specialist environments such as pharmaceutical laboratories and media centres.

Research and Development

We invest a lot of time and resources into acoustic research and development. All of Optima’s systems are rigorously tested and fully certified in a UKAS accredited laboratory and full test reports for each of our products are available.

The acoustic tests are conducted on full height, multi-module screens with glazing joints and perimeter track-work; not simply a ‘window’ in a smaller sized opening. Testing samples using the latter method will generally give an artificially higher acoustic rating and any results obtained in this way should be treated with great caution.

Not just Partitions

At Optima, we’re not just focused on the aesthetic glass partition elements alone. It is also vital for our doors to perform, so we can offer complete systems that are carefully designed, expertly engineered and rigorously tested.

Exceptional advances in our door sealing technology solidifies our position at the cutting edge of progress, enabling us to provide glass doors that achieve a similar acoustic performance to bespoke timber door sets. This complete product package, combined with outstanding installation techniques, ensures that we are at the forefront of the industry.

Alongside our comprehensive product testing service, we can combine data to provide a composite predicted performance value for partition/door combinations.

In-House Technical Expertise

There are numerous questions that need to be answered when specifying acoustic glass partitions. We have our own acoustically qualified Technical Manager who is on hand to help answer these questions and to offer professional advice, helping you to select the right products to suit your specific requirements.

Additionally, our expert team of Project Managers and installers, with years of experience and knowledge, are trained to look out for the potential pitfalls on site to ensure that there are no acoustic weaknesses that might compromise the acoustic performance of our glass partitions.
