WHAT IS SOUND MASKING?

Sound masking is the process of adding a low level, unobtrusive background sound to an environment to reduce the intelligibility of human speech and reduce noise distractions in that environment.

The sound is typically introduced through speakers installed in or above the ceiling.

Sound Masking is used in public buildings, large open office space and noisy work environments where distractions in the workplace cause reductions in productivity.

A well-executed sound masking system will improve confidentiality, improve concentration and lead to increased productivity as less time is lost overhearing casual conversation or intrusive noises.
