Air quality

Air quality

One of the main problems in any working environment is the poor air quality. While polluted air is rarely visible to the naked eye, air quality does greatly influence the wellbeing and productivity of office staff. Poor air quality can even result in respiratory illnesses and other diseases. It is especially caused by poor ventilation and the evaporation of volatile organic compounds (VOC emissions) from furniture cleaning detergents and building materials.

Fact: Good ventilation can help increase productivity

Tackle it at the source

Many experts are of the opinion that the combination of a climate control system and natural ventilation is the best solution, as it provides an optimum balance between energy consumption and quality of the climate and air quality. The ceiling height in offices also plays a role: the higher the ceiling, the more room there is for so-called air stratification (various temperature layers). This results in effective natural air displacement and allows more opportunity for air intake.

An effective method of solving another part of this problem is to tackle it at source, as in the case of printers and copiers, while also precluding materials that have high VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions. Having an office with plants and flowing water is a great way to reduce air pollutants, as these two features help to remove carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Using low VOC floor coverings, wall pannelling, paints and soft furnishings can also help to optimise indoor air quality.

Acoustics

Poor acoustics in a working environment reduces productivity

Studies have shown poor acoustics to be the main annoyance factor in an office environment, impacting on employees’ ability to retain vital information and causing feelings of stress and fatigue. A typical office generates sound levels of 54 A-weighted decibels or more, above the recommended 45dB. Ideally speaking, the acoustic design of an office environment should be in keeping with the activities of its users. It is worth paying attention to sustainable acoustic design solutions as they can safeguard the productivity and health of employees. In the longer term, this can prevent the high costs of absenteeism of employees or productivity losses.

The floor plays an important role in office acoustics.We therefore measure the decibel impact of each of our floor covering types. Based on this, we can advise on the optimal floor covering solution to reduce impact sounds on the floor below and ambient solutions for the space in which you are working.

Innovation has lead to a number of backings with enhanced acoustic performance. Forbo supplies textile softback floors which can absorb up to 30dB of impact noise.

Light reflection

Daylight and light reflection

It will come as no surprise that daylight and lighting are also factors that influence productivity in the workplace. Whilst it is simple to determine the light concentration in a workspace, there is an initially weak relationship between light concentration and productivity. Loss of productivity does not occur until lighting levels drop significantly below 300 lux.

As far as floor coverings are concerned, their LRVs (light reflection values) are extremely important. Forbo supplies this information along with their floor coverings. By choosing wisely, you are ensuring sufficient light as well as saving on the energy costs of lighting.

Fact: Eyes are more relaxed in sufficient daylight
