How Sound Masking Works2018-04-18T14:59:13+00:00

How sound masking works is a great place to start. Sound masking is the introduction of unformulated sound waves, through a targeted area, in order to render formulated human speech unintelligible. This will inherently reduce employee distraction and provide confidentiality where necessary – we ensure that it is an unobtrusive sound like a fan you might have in your office.

HOW SOUND MASKING WORKS

Sound Travels

Sound masking is the introduction of unformulated sound waves, through a targeted area, in order to render formulated human speech unintelligible. This will inherently reduce employee distraction and provide confidentiality where necessary – we ensure that it is an unobtrusive sound like a fan you might have in your office.

How to Attain Speech Privacy

Absorbing sound waves through high-NRC-rated ceiling tile or acoustic wall panels is an effective technique. Another method is to block speech through the installation of high-STC-rated panels, partitions, walls or windows.

Sound masking is in complete contrast to the traditional techniques of noise control through eliminating an unwanted sound with physical barriers. We cover up, or ‘mask’ uninvited sounds, similar to how perfume that covers up odors!

Depending on the environment, you may need a customized combination of these three means to provide an acoustically pleasant workspace.

COMMON MISUNDERSTANDINGS

Where to Install Sound Masking Systems

Sound masking is a science and it is not the same as noise cancellation. Another widespread miscalculation is that sound masking should be implemented where the source of the sound is coming from – this is not accurate in the slightest.

Sound Masking ROI

Implementing modest and budget-friendly acoustics in your office space can dramatically assist with increased employee productivity. Sound distractions are often an understated cost that nearly every business has, and studies by BASEX report that it cost businesses an estimated $587 billion.
