Reduce Distractions & Protect Privacy with Sound Masking

Posted on Jul 8, 2020 in Jeff Nolte's Blog

Today’s offices typically feature an open floor plan to make them more aesthetically pleasing and to encourage collaboration.

But with the increasing use of reflective surfaces – metals, glass and wood – has come a corresponding increase in the noise level, making employees feel less comfortable and more distracted. When this happens productivity suffers and companies can take a big hit to the bottom line.

A Practical Solution

The implementation of sound masking technology offers a practical solution…

  • Employee stress, mental fatigue, burn out, and potential turnover are reduced.
  • Conversational distractions can be reduced and worker performance can be improved.
  • Speech privacy and confidentiality are easier to maintain.
  • Acoustic issues created by windows to meet LEED requirements for day lighting are overcome.

Ease of Use

With these systems, small zones, combined with fine volume and frequency adjustments, allow the masking sound to be customized for any facility. Networked control of settings and zones facilitates setup and takes the headaches out of making changes. Adjustments can be made in minutes without opening the ceiling or altering cabling. The technology is easy to retrofit and provides paging and music functions as well.
