Offices and the workplace in general needs have ambient noise contained to levels that allow easy phone conversations between co-workers and also also discussion to occur privately. Open plan offices encourage a team environment and the easy exchange of ideas put also present challenges in acoustic control. In most cases the most efficient location for acoustic panels is the ceiling, and in some cases walls (if there is the surface area available).

The Mp700/40 ceiling panel is recommended for office environments as it is easy to retro-fit and will blend in with the existing ceiling.
