What is Sound Masking?
Sound Masking is intentionally engineered ambient noise designed to reduce the intelligibility of nearby speaking.
Offices today have more open space, shared work areas, uninsulated partitioned walls, glass surfaces, low-walled cubicles, and exposed ceilings. While these designs are great for collaboration and present a fresh modern feel, they often eliminate materials that block or absorb sounds, such as acoustical ceilings and carpet tiles. Once these are gone, you are left with acoustical challenges that can negatively affect your work environment and infringe on speech privacy.
