Sound Masking

sound masking

Acoustic design for the modern workplace.

It’s distracting to overhear a co-workers’ conversation when you’re trying to concentrate on work. And you don’t want others listening in on your office conversations when you’re discussing sensitive information either. Fortunately, there is a practical, cost-effective solution that delivers a comfortable level of ambient background noise that helps increase speech privacy and diminish distractions.

Commonly used in restaurants, corporate offices, healthcare facilities, law firms, counseling centers, and other work spaces, sound masking is engineered to provide the right blend of frequencies that’s ideal for covering up speech and incidental noises. Beyond creating a more pleasant and secure environment, studies have linked sound masking to increased focus and productivity, and positive financial impact (ROI).

Sound masking installation options include:

  • Direct Sound Masking
    Refers to a design installation in which the system speakers point downwards from the ceiling and sound masking frequencies are emitted directly into the environment. This approach helps create a uniform and evenly distributed sound field with consistent and comfortable ambient sound throughout the space.

  • Indirect Sound Masking
    Refers to an installation design in which the speakers are hidden above the drop ceiling and the sound masking frequency emissions are pointed upwards and reflected off the ceiling deck and back into the workplace environment.

  • Which is right for you? ClearLine can help you make the right determination for your space.

    While a well designed sound masking system can be implemented to produce a comfortable level of non-distracting background noise, results are greatly influenced and depend on several factors like the acoustics of the ceilings, walls, screens, interior finishes and furniture.
