Accessibility in the Office

Accessibility in the Office

It’s wonderful to have an office space that is appealing, well-planned, useful, colourful, and pleasant. But how can you ensure that your office space is suitable for everyone? What does workplace accessibility look like, and how can you truly achieve it?
Within the realm of office design, inclusivity is a prominent challenge. Companies are doing more to proactively build and outfit places that are practical and friendly for everyone.

While some needs for enabling accessibility are well-known, other types of disability and accessibility are less well-known, yet are equally vital. While workplaces change and grow more complex, ensuring inclusivity to all upgrades is important. Without this, you are just further widening the accessibility gap.

Long rows of employees at desks have become the norm, but the noise and distractions can be overwhelming and counterproductive. This leads us to a new arrangement. As a result, office pods have been introduced to modern offices to combat these issues. There are many different styles and types of office pods for a range of different purposes and benefits. However, the extensive benefits of office pods can only be maximised if they work for everyone.


The ACOUSTIX Pod is the first portable acoustic office. The design was curated to ensure wheelchair accessibility. Additionally, it complies with building fire sprinkler requirements. We understand that your employee’s health and safety are a top priority and it’s ours too.
