So what does The World's Number 1 Software Company, India's Largest Car Maker, Leading Healthcare Corporate, The Presidential House and Oscar Winning Studio have in Common?
Open-plan offices are one of the most common modern work settings. Whereas in the past, people were more typically sectioned into private spaces, the modern office provides a more communal, integrated atmosphere to suit the way we now work.
Along with the improvements, there are negative effects on the acoustic environment. As with any large space with many people, reverberation can be high leading to increased noise levels and reduced speech intelligibility, and speech privacy low. Many people are familiar with having to raise their voice in order to be heard in a busy office. This leads to the ‘cocktail party effect’. Voices are raised to compensate for the noise levels. This in turn causes the next person to raise their voice and so on.


So our Technical Teams are faced with similar acoustical challanges on a daily basis which come from different directions and vary vastly in their genesis. Similar questions were posed by Clients & Architects at Microsoft, Maruti, Piramal Healthcare, Rastrapati Bhavan & Rythm Studios.

Case Study: To find a solution to curb noise from Transferring for One Director's Cabin to Another
Client: Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. & Piramal Healthcare Ltd.

The Director's cabin, like most of the cabins of today were designed in a minimalistic tone with a lot of reflective surfaces. The office had been operational for more than 8 weeks and had the usual acoustic treatment like carpet and wall panels. The ceiling however had gypsum board that gives 10-20% Sound Absorption. Looking a the gravity of the situation, the administration team and the architects immediately swung into action and hired acoustical consultants. The first, very obvious knee-jerk reaction was to increase the number of wall panels in the room. This however has no effect on the transfer of noise from one room to another as the noise was travelling from the plenum above the ceiling. Our team was then brought into the action by the consultants to analyse the problem.
To reduce the noise transfer from the plenum , the engineers deemed that a noise absorbent be placed above the ceiling that would provide higher performance than current lining of the walls and ceilings. The challenge was to find a long lasting, quick to install material with without hampering the work schedule and causing least amount of renovation work within the new office premises.
The only product which meets all these requirements was Doublelayer Ceiling. We created bespoke design to enhance the interiors and pasted the Sound absorbing Doublelayer ceiling on the existing Gypsum Board Ceiling.  The benefits being that acoustic performance is increased by creating a whole rounded acoustic solution in the cabin and surrounding areas. As for the client, we surpassed their target acoustic performance.


The Nittobo Solaton Technology Double Layer Ceiling Tiles are attached to a gypsum board mounted to a metal frame by using staples and glue. The result is a high quality flat ceiling finish with superb acoustic properties. There are several different orientations to install these tiles. They can be split into smaller fields or joined together to create seamless different patterns, your design perception and our execution process, in other words, can be an outlet for all sorts of creativity. Architects are invited to interpret 300x600mm Adhesive stapling ceiling tiles in any way they choose. Our Japanese Engineers have created this piece of acoustic and aesthetic art so it promotes fresh creative exploration among even the most established styles.
