Many American airports and cities in the 1970's adopted an open phone kiosk which was actually intended to discourage lengthy calls in high demand and busy areas. The Acoustic Phone booths and boxes that now feature in many offices and commercial spaces take influences from these original designs and there are variations of this acoustic solutions available.
The closed phone box is designed to completely house the caller offering complete privacy and call confidientiality. These units are usually fitted with a hinged or sliding toughned door and can be built to order with optional extras such as monitor screens for Skype calls, power modules, USB chargers, whiteboards, and air circulation. These units often do not feature a base and stands directly on the floor, making it safe, quick and easy to install and relocate.
We can also supply a more open Phone Booth unit which is 'pod like' and allows the user easy access whilst still being cocooned acoustically by high sides and acoustically treated panels. The open booths would obvioulsy not feature the optional extras that are available with the fully enclosed Acoustic Phone Box. These Phone Booths are usually adaptations of meeting pod units as the materials are made up of thick panels and acoustic treated fabrics.
Then there are the Acoustic Phone Hoods which replicate the American Phone Kiosks which allow the user some degree of privacy but they would still be exposed to external noise, these type of booths are usually in walkways and are fixed to the wall. These booths often feature shelf units and pen holders in order to facilitate taking notes or memos durning your call.
In summary, we have you covered if you require an Acoustic Phone Box, Phone Booth or Phone Hood for your office or commercial premisies. Please also remember that due to 'build to order' specification on almost all Acoustic Phone Booths we can build or customize your booth to your requirements.
