Active Noise Control

Sound masking systems are a common part of today’s interiors, from their original use in commercial offices and call centers, to relatively newer applications such as hospital patient rooms. Without this technology, the ambient – or background – sound levels in these facilities are usually too low, leaving occupants trying to work in a pin-drop environment. In fact, the background level in most offices is so low, you can easily hear conversations. These distractions make it difficult to concentrate. It takes more effort to focus, which tires you out, affecting your mood and, ultimately, your productivity.

 

Overview of Sound masking

A sound masking system basically consists of a series of loudspeakers positioned in a certain way in the ceiling, as well as a method of controlling their power and output. The loudspeakers distribute a background sound, raising the facility’s ambient level in a controlled manner.

Though most often compared to soft airflow, this sound has been specifically engineered to cover up speech as well as noise from general office activities and exterior traffic.

Sound masking will assure noise control, speech privacy, improved productivity and facility flexibility.

 

How it’s working?

Concept is simple: any noises that are below the new background level created by the masking sound are covered up and the impact of those still above it is reduced because the degree of change between baseline and peak volumes is smaller. Similarly, conversations are either entirely masked or their intelligibility is reduced, improving occupants’ privacy and decreasing the number of disruptions to their concentration.

Applications include:

  • Banks.
  • Call Centers.
  • High Security Facilities.
  • Hospitals and Hotels.
  • Legal Facilities.Schools and Libraries.
  • Offices.
