Imagine that you are in a darkened room and a child is turning a flashlight on and off. The light is noticeable and distracting. Now imagine the lights are on. The same flashlight is being turned on and off—but is unnoticeable because it has been “masked.” Sound masking works the same way.
Sound masking solutions are ideal for workspaces of any size – from large, multi-building campuses to modest offices. The most typical installations are cubicle areas, private offices, public spaces and hallways.
Sound masking, similar to white noise, is an airflow-like background sound added to work environments to ensure privacy and productivity. This technology is specifically designed to cover speech, making workplace conversations more private and less distracting.
