Customized external finishes for soundproof booths
The external appearance of the soundproof booths
In order that our soundproof booths better fit in a domestic or professional environment, we have selected six different external finishes ranging from black to white, to wood, including a vintage finish; all the materials match well with the oxidized aluminum frame.

In this article we will try to explain what assessments do and the available variants for the customers of Puma Acoustics, referring to the external finishes od the AirBirds soundproof booths.
The quality of the external finishes of a soundproof booth
The external finishes of a soundproof booth are closely related to the materials we use, their mechanical and aesthetic features, the design of the closing details in the most difficult areas such as edges, corners and hinges.
Some important aspects to keep well in mind when taking in consideration the external of a booth, being it visible to all people working in the environment in which the booth is placed, are:
- The resistance;
- The washability;
- The aesthetic appareance and the capability to match with the surrounding environmen.
This feature depends essentially on the nature of the materials we use for the soundproof booth. It affects the duration of the finish. A lower quality of the materials coincide with a greater speed and ease in getting damaged (e.g. scratches, abrasions and, at the outside, breakage). Not all external finish have the same characteristics, in particular, some particular finishes such as flocculent, fibrous, in fabric or in carpet. Generally, in fact, these external finishes wear down in a not homogeneous way, depending on the rubbing
The washability is a feature with a particular importance, considering that occasionally, for example, there will be the need of washing some stain otherwise very unsightly. Not all the external finishes can be washed, in fact some particular finishes such as flocculent, fibrous, in fabric or in carpet are the most difficult to treat. Care should be also taken for some finishes needing the final touch of the customer, such as adhesives, canvas or/and printings of large dimensions.
The aesthetic yield of the product is a feature to consider depending on the environment in which the booth has to be placed. In a living room with a contemporary style colours like black or white are more suitable, while if the location is dominated by wood is better to choose a finish with essence. Aesthetics is one of the element that keeps high the price of the product in case of a hypothetical resale.
