We have these at work and they are completely useless:

Looks like more of a visual divider than an acoustic thang with all those holes ;)

They specifically describe it as a 'sound absorbing screen'. I really can't see it doing much good!

you all rather miss the point.


it is a sound absorber ,. NOT a sound divider, not a sound proofing, or isolating device.


it's purpose is to provide an aesthetically pleasing visual divide, or even wall area decoration, and absorb ambient noise, reducing the RT60 of the space and making the background noise floor more bearable, as an overall space treatment tool....

it works.... for the intended purpose.

not for the purpose most people THINK it's for...

Indeed, I expect it will reduce some reflection in a stark office, but alas it was installed in my place as a 'wall'.
