Create an ambient space, attract more customers

When it comes to café sound proofing, as the old saying goes, customers will vote with their feet, so your venue needs to be as inviting as possible.

Coffee shops and Cafés typically have a lot of hard surfaces and open spaces where noise from patrons, coffee machines, music or pots and pans can be an issue. Coupled with the rise of mobile entrepreneurs, more and more customers are looking for a suitable place to work or meet in peace and quiet. Sound proofing your café can help you achieve an ambience where customers and workers can feel relaxed and converse with one another effectively.

The Quash team provided sound panels for our small office which is made from cool room panels. This meant it was almost impossible for more than one person at a time to speak in our office.
We did it on a budget so funds were limited. Quash allowed for this and solved the problem very effectively. I would not hesitate to recommend Quash for any soundproofing job, big or small!

Thank you very much for your efforts to install the door. It works! Our daughter enjoyed a good sleep until we shaken her out of bed this morning. She usually turns out herself before 6:00 am due to the traffic noise.

What’s the best way to get a quote?

Complete the quote form on this page or give us a call. Beforehand, it’s best to obtain rough measurements, window types and specific details on the noise issue. We will be able to provide you with an indicative cost to see whether a solution is within your budget. If you wish to proceed we will come to your home or office to measure and confirm our quote.

Do I need strata/landlord approval for sound proofing?

As our soundproofing solutions are generally installed inside,  and do not alter the appearance of the building, strata approval has never been required. Having said that, it is recommended to seek it out and in some cases, request the landlord share the costs of installation.
After accepting a quote, how long will it take for sound proofing to be installed?
Generally between 2 and 4 weeks depending upon the time of the year and demand at the time.

Can the sound proofing match existing decor?

When installing windows, we can match nearly every powder coated frame in WA, let us know your colour or take a photo for us and we’ll track it down. Acoustic panels can be customised to match any decor and/or include your own branding or art work.

What is the return on investment for sound proofing?

Naturally, most sound proofing solutions reduce thermal transfer, making it cheaper to cool your space in summer and warm it in winter.

My café building is heritage listed, can sound proofing still be installed?

Yes, we have installed replacement windows and acoustic panels in heritage listed buildings.

Does soundproofing your café increase your true venue capacity?

Over the years, we’ve heard some great stories from café owners that are wrapped with their new sound proofing and are receiving great feedback from their customers. In contrast, we also hear from patrons about cafés that are losing business due to being too noisy.

Considering this, we are of the opinion that the true capacity of a venue is not the number of seats in the café but the amount of customers that can concurrently hold a conversation without having to raise their voice.

Scenario 1

A busy café in South Perth lost a table of 10 to their competition after they walked out due to high noise levels.

Scenario 2

A networking group in Mandurah were seeking a location to host their regular networking breakfast of 20 business owners. After their first meeting, the group had no choice but to relocate as they couldn’t hear each other talk.

Acoustic Absorbing Panels for Cafés

The best sound proofing solution for cafés is to use acoustic absorbing panels on either the walls, the ceilings or both. Quash can help you decide the placement of acoustic panels to achieve the best sound absorption and aesthetic look, considering available wall space, ceiling height and noise source.

Our most popular sound proofing solution for café’s are our Quietspace acoustic panels. These are highly effective sound absorbers available in 25mm and 50mm thickness, made to measure dimensions and available to be styled into custom decorative colours or patterns.
High ceilings do provide some level of acoustic relief, but installing ceiling baffles/fins makes the high ceiling space much more effective in absorbing noise.
