What Is Sound Masking?

Sound Masking is the addition of sound into an environment to cover up unwanted sound with a more soothing or less distracting sound. Sound masking reduces or eliminates awareness of pre-existing sounds in a given area and can make a work environment more comfortable, while creating speech privacy so workers can better concentrate and be more productive. Sound masking systems are often used to help people sleep and concentrate. Sound Masking is not to be confused with noise cancellation, which is the cancellation of sound rather than covering it up.

Sound masking systems can be used anywhere to ensure speech privacy or reduce distractions. Sound masking is typically used in selected workspaces but it also be helpful to individuals with home offices that require sound masking or if they have trouble getting a good nights sleep

Sound Masking in An Open Office Environment - Open offices can be either too quiet (where someone dropping a pen in the next cubicle is distracting) - or too noisy (where the conversations of others in the office make it impossible to concentrate). Open offices can benefit from sound masking systems because the added sound covers existing sounds in the area - making workers less distracted and more productive.

Sound Masking Systems for Private Offices - Private offices and other enclosed spaces often appear to provide privacy but actually do not. Many times, walls are lightweight and do not extend to the ceiling deck - only to the ceiling tile. In these cases, sound can easily travel through partitions or over the walls. Sound masking can be provided in adjacent private offices. Sound masking systems can help increase concentration, productivity, and employee retention when installed in an environment office environment.

Masking Sound In Public Places - Sound masking is beneficial for reception areas, pharmacies, waiting rooms, and financial institutions. Sound masking is provided in the area where conversations should not be heard. For instance, a doctor does not want those in the waiting room to overhear a private conversation with a patient, so sound masking is provided in the waiting area: not in the doctor’s office. In situations like these, sound masking systems can also help increase compliance with HIPAA regulations.

The Best Sound Masking to Protect Confidentiality- Sound masking is being used to protect confidential privacy in areas where sensitive or classified conversations are being held. The applications, among others, are in government, military, military contractors, corporate board rooms, and legal offices. The requirements for this type of masking are more stringent. The sound must be guaranteed to be continuous during room use, performance must be verified, and the equipment must be able to protect windows, doors, walls, and ducts with vibration maskers instead of loudspeakers.
