Some answers

With studiobricks everything is fast and simple, that’s why we want to clarify your doubts.

F.A.Q.s

What is so special about the STUDIOBRICKS concept?

STUDIOBRICKS is the first patented sound insulating cabin system for professional use in offices, fair trades and industry environments that can be simply stuck together due to its modular design. No drilling, screwing or adhesive bonding! Please have a look at this short video showing the assembly of a small cabin in 7,5 minutes (click here) and of its take down in 3 minutes (click here). This is so for all our FOCUS booths. The HOLA, HELLO and HALLO phone booths do have some few screws in assembly and are still extremely easy to install.

How good is the sound insulation of the STUDIOBRICKS products?

The sound insulation of our products is the best in the product category. From our product range the FOCUS booths are the ones with the highest sound isolation due to their special sound control door. Our booths are on average at 45 dB, for the HOLA and HELLO booths (being new products) the acoustic measurements are pending and will be provided.

Our double-walled STUDIOBRICKS cabins are not 100% soundproof but have very strong sound-absorbing and isolating properties. A complete soundproof cabin would have to be made of extremely bulky and heavy walls and could not be set up in a normal office. STUDIOBRICKS cabins are therefore the perfect solution if sound isolation is your mayor interest. You can download the acoustic measurements done according to ISO standards by a certified company on our webpage.

The sound insulation of all our products is good enough that they can be placed next to workstations in the middle of an office and people working next to the pods will not be able to overhear discussions had inside them. We recommend that prospective customers step inside a STUDIOBRICKS booth to assess whether our products’ sound insulation is enough to meet their needs.

How long does manufacturing take?

The STUDIOBRICKS products have a production time of 2-6 weeks depending on the model. You then must add the transport time on top.

How can I order one of the STUDIOBRICKS cabins?

You can send us your inquiry by e-mail to info@studiobricks.com or visit us at one of our showrooms or at the fairs. Or simply give us a call as we will be happy to offer you advice and information at any time without commitment. Before ordering we will submit you an offer with 3D drawings and all key data as well as packaging, shipping and assembly.

Who assembles the cabins?

For commercial use we recommend letting the setup done by us or one of our trained partners in our network. But of course, our units can also be assembled by yourself as it is easy and not time-consuming. Every customer receives precise installation instructions in a pdf file and/or video. The cabin will be delivered in a card board box by a truck with loading ramp free to curb if no other is accorded. We recommend a minimum of 2 people to carry the construction elements from the truck to the office and later to proceed with the assembly.

Is it possible to place the cabins in any office without difficulty?

Our double-walled cabins can be set up in any office, industrial environment or exhibition hall. For larger customized cabin solutions, we recommend to consult a stress analyst.

Is it possible to demount the cabins at a later point of time and to set them up at a different place or office?

STUDIOBRICKS cabins are extremely easy to install by simply slotting the components together, neither adhesives nor screwing is needed. This is so for all our FOCUS booths. The HOLA, HELLO and HALLO phone booths do have some few screws in assembly and are still extremely easy to install. Due to our patented modular design a simple set up and demounting is possible and offers flexibility regarding choice of location and use. All components are precision-made, and every cabin is assembled and checked prior to shipping, to guarantee a trouble-free assembly even after sea transport. Our HOLA, HELLO and HALLO booths stand on casters for their easy relocation.

What kind of power outlets are there?

2 power sockets and USB charger
LAN cable lead-through if needed with extra cost

What is the power consumption and what does it mean?

Power consumption is a constant value that is determined by the power usage of the booths internal components (electric unit, motion detector, light and fan).

All booths (less HELLO phone booth)

13,05 – 41,05 W max. while in use

  • LED light (x2): 5,3 W
  • Fan: min. 2 W max. 30 W
  • Sensor: 0,45 W max.
HELLO

19,05 W while in use

  • LED light (x2): 5,3 W
  • Fan: 8 W
  • Sensor: 0,45 W max.
What are the input and output values of the booths?
  • Input: 100–240 VAC, 16.0 A, 50–60 Hz
  • Output VAC (2 sockets): 100–240 VAC, 16.0 A, 50–60 Hz
  • Output double USB Charger: 5 V, 2.1 A
What are the electrical systems like?

STUDIOBRICKS products have an input power plug at the outside of the booth that can be plugged into a wall socket. The booths have their own power supplies that give 230 V AC to the lights and fan. The lights are operated by a motion detector. The ventilator works independently from the motion detector, so the booths are constantly ventilated with fresh air and not only in the moment you step in (less HELLO where it is connected to the sensor.).
Inside the booths, there are country-specific power outlets for charging mobile devices and a double USB charger.

How long are the power cables?

3m

What electrical components can be changed?

All electric components can be changed if there is a malfunction.

What are the technical specifications of the lights?

All booths
2 LED spots in ceiling

  • Illuminance: On the table top surface, the illuminance measured is about 330 lm.
  • Color temperature: 4000 K
  • Power consumption: 5.3 W/spot
What is the amount of air flow inside the pods?
All booths (less HELLO phone booth)
  • Total air flow is 30-180 m ³/h (depending on used setting)
HELLO
  • Total air flow is 100 m³/h
Is it possible to use the existing wireless signals (WiFi etc.)?

You can use the existing wireless signals (Wi-Fi etc.), mobile phones and tablets in our STUDIOBRICKS cabins as our cabins let cellular signals pass.

Is it possible to have a data cable connected to the cabins?

Yes. You can order all our booths with an ethernet port built-in as an extra feature.

How is the fan and how much noise does it make?

Our booths are equipped with a special sound proof ventilation kit which is extremely quiet thus it was especially designed for recordings. It is easily mounted to the inside wall of the booth (below the table). Since it is not concealed nor integrated in the booth structure you can easily access for maintenance and regular filter exchange.

The ventilator works independently from the motion detector, so the booths are continuously ventilated with fresh air and not only in the moment you step in.

Is there a way to adjust ventilation and lighting?

The ventilation kit comes with a remote control and can be adjusted in speed and programmed.

Is it possible to have Studiobricks booths with a right-handed door?

STUDIOBRICKS FOCUS booths are available in both left and right-handed doors (thanks to our modular system).
The HOLA model is only available with a left-handed door. The HELLO and HALLO models only with the right-handed door.

How much space do the pods need?

For acoustic reasons our booths must be decoupled from the building. This is taken care of by leaving a minimum distance of 5cm between the booth and any wall or pillar and serves also the ventilation.

How much do the pods weigh?

HOLA, HELLO, HALLO weigh 350KG. FOCUS weighs 435kg, FOCUS + 455kg, FOCUS SPACES depending on the size.

What are the dimensions and weights of the shipping crates?

The dimensions of the crate (card board box on a pallet) for the HOLA, HELLO, HALLO, FOCUS and FOCUS + booths are 0,98m x 1,31m x 2,30m (height).

The weight of the crate including the booth is approx. 420kg (HOLA, HELLO, HALLO), 505kg (FOCUS booth), 525kg (FOCUS +) and FOCUS SPACES depending on the size.

What about fire safety?

Surface materials, upholstery and acoustic materials of our products are fire retardant, tested and classified by either national or international standards. The acoustic absorbers we use, the MDF fibre boards and the lacquer are classified as B, s2 d0 according to performance requirements of DIN EN 13501-1. Fabric for seating options meets performance requirements of EN 1021-1:2015 regulations. Foam no. 1 for seating options is classified as M1 according to performance requirements of UNE 23723-27 (ES, BE, FR, LU). Foam no. 2 and fibre for seating options meet performance requirements of BS 5852 Regulation (GB, AE) regulations; floor carpet Cfl-s1, EN 13501-1.

Do the booths need sprinklers?

Revising different national fire safety regulations our opinion is about all our easily removable booths (except the FOCUS series) is that:

  • Neither of the products significantly exceed the 1 m maximum dimension for covered spaces in all dimensions.
  • The products do not contain any easily combustible materials and therefore do not increase the fire load of the surrounding space by hindering the operation of the sprinklers in it
  • The products can be considered movable furniture instead of building structures that sprinkler requirements are typically set for

However, our products can be fitted with sprinklers if required because of local regulations. STUDIOBRICKS does not provide sprinklers, install them or take responsibility for the installation. Instructions for sprinkler installation for STUDIOBRICKS BOOTHS are available upon request.

Are the booths safe in case of an earthquake?

In STUDIOBRICKS case, seismic requirements are typically related to our products’ ability to stay upright in case of an earthquake. If needed, the BOOTHS can be fixed to the floor at the floor frame. Instructions are available upon request. This fixation must be ordered separately.

What’s the lifespan and warranty of STUDIOBRICKS’s products?

We offer a 2-year warranty on our cabins from billing date for repair and spare parts. STUDIOBRICKS accessories (including LED lighting, electric parts, hinges, ventilator, occupancy sensor) are warranted for one year.

This warranty does not cover damage resulting from an accident, mishandling, vandalism, misuse, abuse, alteration or lack of reasonable care maintenance. This warranty also does not cover damage resulting from outdoor use as STUDIOBRICKS cabins are designed for indoor use only. This warranty is extended to the original owner only and is not transferable.
