About Our Products
Are TalkBox Booths soundproof?
Our booths have been tested to show an average sound reduction of 33.43dB; the difference between a loud city street and the quiet of a library setting. This means your experience in a TalkBox is a tranquil 10.75 times quieter than the bustle of the outside world. This is what we call effective sound (or noise) mitigation, the proper term for what privacy booths offer, and what we like to educate our customers to understand.
While the term "soundproof" gets used often, it would be disingenuous to call a TalkBox or any privacy booth "soundproof". Any claims that a booth or pod is truly soundproof should be met with skepticism. Actual soundproofing is impractical to achieve both cost and space-wise, and ultimately gives many people an uneasy feeling when experiencing it.
From a safety perspective, it is also important that booth users are able to hear fire, security and other building alarms which is possible with all our models.
TalkBox booths are designed to hit the sweet spot of affordable, practical sound mitigation for most environments.
What does it sound like in the booth?
We have engineered the acoustics of our booths to be perfect for a phone conversation or conference call. External sounds are minimized and the acoustic panels inside absorb sound which minimize any echo from your voice. The result is an experience that helps people focus and boosts overall productivity.
How big are your booths?
Here are the exterior dimensions and recommended capacity of our booths:
SLIDE: 47.5” wide x 42.5” deep x 87.25” tall — (1 person)
FOLD: 39.4” wide x 35.4” deep x 90.2” tall — (1 person)
DOUBLE: 88.5” wide x 48” deep x 90” tall — (1-2 people)
STUDIO: 85”wide x 82.75”deep x 86”h tall — (1-4 people)
Do you have an ADA (American Disabilities Act) accessible booth?
Yes, we have worked hard to engineer a booth that has ADA compliant layouts. This booth is extremely versatile for many applications in addition to being ideal as an ADA accessible booth. See the TalkBox STUDIO here!
How many customization options do you have?
With our many accessories, add-ons and color choices, there are hundreds of custom combinations available to you. Feel free to ask us about the different interior and exterior color options we have. We also offer exterior wraps for a completely branded experience. With TalkBox, you can always match your brand or personalize your booth to make it unique. Additional cost and lead time may apply.
What is the difference between the TalkBox SLIDE and FOLD models?
The SLIDE is primarily wood construction with a sliding door, larger desk, built in cabinet space, skylight and more color options.
The FOLD is primarily steel construction with a folding door, sit or stand desk height option and slightly smaller footprint.
They both offer great sound privacy, comfort control ventilation, built in USB and power and more.
See the SLIDE and FOLD pages for more info.
Do you have a TalkBox that fits two or more people?
How comfortable is a TalkBox booth?
We have engineered our booths with comfort as a priority. Our users have consistently reported that they feel very comfortable thanks to the spacious interior, floor to ceiling window on the sliding door and the skylight.
What about fire code and fire ratings?
Contact us to learn more about fire code and fire ratings information about our booths.
Will my TalkBox be covered by a warranty?
Yes! Our products come with a 2-year limited warranty on parts. If any part of your booth doesn’t function as expected, we’ll send you a replacement and work with an installation team, if necessary, to fix it.
We currently hold a 100% customer satisfaction rating, so you know you can count on us.
Where are the light and fan controls?
The SLIDE and the DOUBLE booths utilize this standard power unit built into the desk. The integrated switch controls lights and fan with a single button, and fan speed can be further fine-tuned with a dial in the cabinet below.
The STUDIO (ADA) booth has it's control panel wall mounted behind the desk. LED light control is split between power unit switches so the user may choose task lighting or full power, with fan control on the left:
The FOLD has automatic environmental control features (light and fan) via its built-in occupancy sensor.
Can TalkBox booths be put outside?
We don’t recommend putting booths outside as our booths are not designed for outdoor use.
What delivery options do you offer?
White Glove: The delivery team will unload and take apart the crate(s), transport each component to your dedicated assembly location, and remove all waste. We coordinate white glove delivery and installation for you and include this in our quotes so you know your full cost upfront.
Dock-to-Dock* Delivery: The delivery team will unload the crate(s) from the truck onto your loading dock, and let you take it from there. You’ll be able to transport the components to your dedicated assembly location, as well as remove waste, at your leisure. *Dock-to-Dock available only for those with a loading dock in their building.
What kind of lead time should I expect?
Lead time depends on which booth you ordered and the degree of customization and production demands. For a lead time estimate please contact us.
I’ve placed my order. Now what?
Congratulations, you’ve ordered a TalkBox!
Next, we will contact you to arrange a delivery date. We’ll send you a questionnaire to capture everything we need to ensure a smooth delivery process.
Since teleportation hasn’t been perfected yet, TalkBox Booths are shipped flat-packed via freight carrier. Want to trace your booth's journey? We provide tracking info upon request.
How should I prepare to receive my TalkBox?
Prior to your scheduled delivery, please prep the space for the arrival of the parts. Don’t worry — it’s easy! All you have to do is clear obstructions (furniture, cords, etc.) and designate a wall or temporary storage space big enough to fit the six phone booth walls (largest piece 47” x 84”) and 15 smaller parts.
When we schedule your delivery, we always allow at least 24 hours between delivery and assembly. This will give the delivery crew enough time for traffic delays or other unforeseeable issues.
The ideal assembly space is 10’ x 10’ or larger, which will make it easy for assemblers to safely maneuver the parts and assemble your booth.
On delivery day, we appreciate a degree of flexibility and responsiveness. When your order arrives at the nearest carrier facility, the carrier will reach out to you directly to schedule a convenient delivery window. Please make sure to be responsive to this call. If delayed delivery results in having to reschedule assembly, additional charges will apply.
Do I have to assemble my booth myself?
For peak performance, we highly recommend allowing our team of expert assemblers, often accompanied by a TalkBox supervisor, to handle assembly for you. However, if you are handy, you can definitely assemble the booth if you would like.
How long does assembly take?
Assembly typically requires up to two hours per booth, assuming the space and the parts are ready. During assembly, your space may experience drill noises and some light hammering.
If you’d rather schedule assembly outside normal business hours or on weekends, we can do that! Additional fees may apply.
