According to a study by Decibel Pro, a full classroom of children talking at the same time can reach decibel levels up to 95 dBA. Considering that the OSHA (the US Occupational Safety and Health Organization) permissible exposure limit is 90 dBA over an 8-hour day, levels above 90 decibels in schools can become very problematic and even dangerous.
Experts at Framery agree, and their sound-proof pods offer noise solutions to students and teachers alike. Framery O pods allow for one student or faculty member to work in silence for heads down work, while Framery Q pods accommodate small groups and Framery 2Q pods allow for groups of up to six people. All Framery products are designed to use space as efficiently as possible. They feel spacious for users on the inside due to ergonomic design, while simultaneously making only a small footprint in the classroom. For example, Framery Q requires only 2.6 m² of floor space.
Framery offers users a space to work on tasks that require concentration. The pods can be used for taking an exam and studying alone or for those seeking peace to concentrate, reading homework out loud, or for watching educational videos. For group projects, students in the pod can be as loud as they want, but thanks to its soundproofing, the classroom remains peaceful and quiet so as not to disturb those nearby.
