In recent years, providing comfortable working conditions in open office spaces has become a growing challenge. The ever-increasing demand for office work implies the emergence of ever new spaces and the need to use available space, which generates the need for proper interior design. There are many acoustic solutions available on the market that support the acoustic comfort in office spaces by ensuring appropriate levels of privacy and low levels of acoustic background. One of such solutions are desktop screens, which divide employees’ space. These solutions are based mainly on sound absorbing materials, i.e., mineral wool, felt, as well as sound insulating ones, such as glass or MDF. The article presents methods of using microperforated foils for building acoustic screens. The influence of dimensions and parameters of microperforated foil were examined. The method of its assembly as well as the use of layered systems made of microperforated foil and sound insulating material were also considered in this paper.
