FAQs

What’s so unique about the OFFICEBRICKS concept?

  • OFFICEBRICKS is the first patented sound insulating cabin system for professional use in office, fair trade and industry environments that can be simply stuck together due to its modular design. No drilling, screwing or adhesive bonding! Please have a look at this short video explaining the brick concept. (link to movie)
  • Our cabins provide two-way sound insulation, that is no external noise gets inside the cabin and conversations in the cabin cannot be overheard from outside. All components are standarized and precision-made using CNC machines. Because of the modular design cabins can be flexibly adjusted to existing rooms. The assembly time for a OFFICEBRICKS cabin is short and can be done by us or by the customer himself on site if interested as no drilling, screwing or proofing is needed. Our cabins are not permanent installations, but are units that can simply be demounted and assembled like furniture when moving to another office building. Because of this modular brick concept our cabin systems are also oustandingly suited for use at trade fairs and road shows. As a special service we also offer customized branding to adapt them to the existing emvironment or match with existing CI guidelines. Besides selecting from any NCS color, even printing of the whole cabin be done. Furthermore, company logos can be milled into the cabin surface.

  • All 4 units are double-walled sound insulating cabins for professional use in office, trade fair and industry environments.

  • You can use the existing Wi-Fi in our OFFICEBRICKS cabins. Additionally all units have a ethernet port built-in.

How soundproof are your cabins?

  • Our double-walled OFFICEBRICKS cabins are not 100% soundproof, but have very strong sound-absorbing properties. A complete soundproof cabin would have to be made of extremely bulky and heavy walls and could not be set up in a normal office. OFFICEBRICKS cabins are therefore the perfection solution if sound absorbing areas are needed. The specifications, done according to ISO standards by a certified company, you can found on our product sheets availabe as pdf files on our product sides.

All components are precision-made and every cabin is assembled and checked prio to shipping, for example to guarantee a trouble-free assembly even after sea transport.
