The Think Tank was developed to acoustically optimize open office areas, open space areas. The increase of sound-absorbing surfaces and the associated optimization of the reverberation time (damping of the volume) is not the top priority in the specifications. Rather, the office planner should ensure that loud, intensive and longer conversations do not take place on the open office area, but can be isolated by means of specialised room systems.
People don't communicate silently. Longer conversations or even discussions should not take place within hearing distance of the colleagues. The Think Tank in room within room construction allows the construction of acoustically decoupled retreat areas. Think tanks in the immediate vicinity of workplaces are suitable room systems for calming open office areas. At the same time, the think tank optimizes communication in open-plan offices.
The thinker cell according to the room in room principle can be a conference room or a telephone booth in an open-plan office. Ultimately, only the size and equipment are responsible for the different orientation. The Think Tank room system offers you a location for concentrated brooding as well as for communicative group work. The Think Tank is soundproof. The room system enables contemporary work processes and the change of team and individual work that is in demand. The separation of the associated communication from the open work space is the basis for acoustic optimisation. The think tank is thus an elementary component of the office furnishings for the open-plan office.
The think tank is soundproof. The room system enables modern work processes and the required change of team and individual work. The separation of the associated communication from the calm of the open work space is the basis for acoustic optimisation. The think tank is thus an elementary acoustic component of the office furnishings for open space offices. In addition, the self-sufficient construction makes it possible to colonise the central zone. The think tank thus provides the necessary space for the required spatial diversity. New work, agile work is only possible on many office areas in the first place.
The complete system ceiling of the think tank, according to the room in room principle, is a class A high performance absorber. The design as microperforated metal cassette ceiling, the inner structure and the layer thickness ensure a highly effective absorption of sound over all relevant frequency ranges and thus a short reverberation time in the thinker cell. In addition, solid wall elements can also be activated acoustically, depending on the requirements and purpose of the think tank. This also applies to the outside of the think tank. These areas can replace the acoustic activation of other office equipment.
The solid wall elements of the room in room system are constructed according to the sandwich principle. They consist of a technical support and attached functional surfaces (panels). These panels can be redefined for each solid wall element. They have uniform thicknesses and thus different functions (e.g. absorber and whiteboard) can be flush-mounted next to each other in the interlinking.
The standard panels for the full walls of the Think Tank are decorative elements. These can be matched to office furniture or office furnishings, for example. In the event that wall surfaces have to be activated acoustically, the functional surfaces are designed as high-performance absorbers. This can apply to the interior of the room-in-room system as well as to the exterior. The outer wall surfaces of the Think Tank can also acoustically support the surrounding office.
The functional surfaces of the solid walls can be replaced at any time, even retrospectively. If the use of the room unit changes, the thinker cell can also be acoustically adapted to the changed requirements. One example: the think tank is to be used for video conferences in the future. Highly sensitive hands-free kits require particularly soft acoustics. The reverberation time in the think tank must be further reduced. They simply depend on decorative surfaces and replace them with high-performance absorbers. Now just change the equipment, the office furniture and your think tank is specialized for the new use.
