How to Personalize Your WhisperRoom

By: WhisperRoom™

December 13, 2022

Several optional features for a WhisperRoom shown over a orange gradient background.

WhisperRoom sound isolation booths are available in 26 different modular sizes and two levels of sound isolation. Each booth we make is offered in the Standard (single-wall isolation) and the Enhanced (double-wall isolation). Your sound booth size, noise isolation requirements, and the preferred optional features will vary depending on your environment, location, and use.

Let’s take a detailed look at all the optional features that can be added to your WhisperRoom order. Many of these add-ons are useful for specific applications and are enjoyed by clients with similar needs. Please keep in mind that Optional Features are additional and priced separately.


Office Desk

This low-profile Office Desk is designed to help you maximize the workspace. Two USB outlets and two 120-volt outlets are conveniently attached to the desk so you can plug straight in.

An Office Desk for a WhisperRoom Sound Booth

The 30″ wide red oak desk is preattached to a backing panel with adjustable hinges. This gives you the flexibility to fold the desk down and make more space in the booth when you decide not to use it.

The desk can be installed on the inside or outside of your WhisperRoom and can be added to your initial order or afterward.

Studio Lights

As with all WhisperRoom™ features, the optional Studio Light series provides maximum flexibility. Dual light systems, LED puck lights for general lighting, and multicolored LED lights for mood/ambiance are all incorporated into this unique design.

The Studio Lights create no noise or heat and can easily be adjusted for desired brightness. Additionally, the multicolored lights can be set to a single color or alternating colors, as well as a variety of other functions using a remote control, which is included.

The Studio Lights, in conjunction with the numerous interior acoustical foam colors now available, provide limitless possibilities. The size and quantity of the Studio Lights included with each booth are determined by the size of the WhisperRoom™.


Acoustic Tuning Package (ATP)

The Acoustic Tuning Package provides a very flexible and cost-effective solution to easily create the interior acoustical environment desired by each WhisperRoom user.

The primary purpose of the ATP is to alleviate the problem of parallel walls, which creates an acoustical issue commonly known as Standing Waves.

The ATP consists of a series of angled deflector panels attached to the interior surface of two perpendicular walls within the WhisperRoom.  Acoustical foam sheets (1′ x 2′) can be attached to several deflector panels to control mid to high frequencies.  LENRD® Bass Traps (3), located in the common corner, control low frequencies.

Open voids created behind each angled deflector panel, provide for soundwave entrapment.  Other acoustical materials, such as cloth-wrapped fiberglass, can be attached to the surface of deflector panels. The direction and pattern of deflector panels can, easily and quickly, be adjusted to accommodate user needs.

LENRD® Bass Traps

Control low frequencies inside your WhisperRoom™ with LENRD® Bass Traps. These top-of-the-line bass traps are designed to dampen low-frequency sound energy and help you attain a flatter low frequency inside your booth.

Bass traps substantial enough to control nodes have always been expensive to buy, or too intricate and time-consuming to build, but not anymore! LENRD® Bass Traps are extremely effective at smoothing out low-frequency room nodes at an affordable price.

Multi Jack Panel (MJP)

The Multi Jack Panel is a standalone optional feature that can be installed on your WhisperRoom after it is assembled.

It is a prewired, jack-panel insert consisting of 2 USB jacks, 4 XLR jacks, and 6 – 1/4″ stereo phono jacks.

Caster Plate

The Caster Plate feature is an additional floor component with wheels to aid in the mobility of a WhisperRoom™. The Caster Plate also provides a substantial amount of downward noise control.

It adds additional mass in the downward direction and provides a 4″ air buffer below the WhisperRoom. This feature is highly recommended for applications where low-end, structurally transmitted noise is a problem.

NoteThis option adds five (5) inches to the overall height of a unit and may be purchased at any time. For ease of assembly, however, it is recommended that the Caster Plate is purchased during the initial order.

Step

An optional exterior step is now available for situations that require an optional Caster Plate.  The step provides a comfortable transition when stepping up into and out of the WhisperRoom.

It is highly recommended that the step be used in conjunction with the optional Caster Plate.

Height Extension

The WhisperRoom™ is designed to permit installation in residences and facilities with standard ceiling heights (approximately 8′). However, when additional height is required for equipment or application-specific needs, a 10″ height extension upgrade is available.

Note: Prior to placing your order you should ensure that the host room ceiling height will permit the installation of the Height Extension. Must be specified at initial order.

Isolation Enhancement Package Floor (IEP Floor)

The IEP floor is a 5/16″ duracoustic mat made of recycled rubber that is included in the Enhanced models or IEP upgrades. It is installed on the floor underneath the WhisperRoom™ floor and provides additional isolation.

The IEP floor can be purchased for Standard rooms and also is recommended if there is a possibility of upgrading to an Enhanced model at any point in time.

Exterior Fan Silencer (EFS)

Exterior ventilation fans have a 38dB noise rating. This slight noise can be eliminated by positioning each fan into an Exterior Fan Silencer (EFS).

The number of EFS units needed depends on the size of the WhisperRoom™ and the number of ventilation systems required. This option may be required when a more controlled sound environment is needed in the host room. 

Note: May be ordered and installed at any time.

Ventilation Silencing System (VSS)

Standard WhisperRoom™ Ventilation Systems are quiet. However, the airflow noise (running at 80 CFM) is still slightly audible inside a WhisperRoom™ sound isolation booth. This noise can be eliminated by the installation of a VSS. The number of VSS units needed depends on the size of the WhisperRoom™ model.

One VSS is required for each Standard Ventilation System.

Each VSS consists of two additional exhaust ducts, with hoses and adapters, linked in line between the standard exhaust duct and the remote fan unit (RFU).


Note: May be ordered at any time.

HEPA Filter

Our new HEPA filter is easily installed on any WhisperRoom. The unique design allows the ventilation to maintain airflow while blocking out unwanted particles in your booth.

HEPA filters are incredibly effective at capturing viruses, bacteria, pollen, mold, and more.

Note: Includes an additional replacement filter.

Wall Windows

Other than size, the design is the same as that of a door window. Each glass unit consists of multiple layers of 1/4″ laminated safety glass separated by an air buffer(s). Safety glass is used because of its superior noise reduction capabilities, and its safety features; if broken, it will not shatter.

8 Various Wall Window sizes for a WhisperRoom Sound Isolation Booth

A window does not reduce the noise reduction capability of a WhisperRoom. However, it does increase the amount of interior reflective surface area. An additional cable passage plug is located at the base of each window component.

*26-Inch wide windows are only available for 42, 60, 84, and 102 Series Models.
*32-Inch wide windows are only available for 48, 72, and 96 Series Models.

Note: Must be specified at initial order.

Wide-Access Door

Any WhisperRoom™ with a 5′ wall or larger can be configured with a Wide-Access Door upgrade. This upgrade is perfect for applications that require the passage of large items into and out of the WhisperRoom™. A ramp system is also available for wheelchair access.

Wide-Access Doors include a 16″ x 48″ window.

Note: Must be specified at the initial order.

ADA Package

The ADA Package includes the following components needed to allow easy accessibility for people with disabilities: a 32” wide door opening, a 1:12 ratio ramp, a door handle operable with a closed fist, a raised floor, our new “no threshold” door design, and each of the seven available sizes has at least a five-foot interior space for wheelchair maneuverability.

The ADA Package for a WhisperRoom Isolation Booth

All ADA Package sizes will be available in both our single-wall (Standard) and double-wall (Enhanced) versions and will provide comparable noise reduction.

Note: The 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act standards which apply to state & local governments, public accommodations, and commercial facilities state that “the 2010 Standards apply to fixed or built-in elements of buildings, structures, site improvements, and pedestrian routes or vehicular ways located on-site.” Because the WhisperRoom is neither built-in nor a fixed element/structure, there is no technical requirement for the WhisperRoom to comply with the 2010 ADA standards.

Note: Must be specified at initial order.
