Create a Comfortable & Private Environment to Help Your Team Thrive
What is sound masking? Unlike soundproofing (which uses wall panels to contain noises), a sound masking installation involves loudspeakers that emit soft, ambient background noises across your office. The white noise will sound like a constant airflow that muffles human speech and makes the room makes feel quieter and more comfortable.
When we install sound masking systems, we recommend in-ceiling or wallmounted speakers positioned just outside of conference rooms and break rooms. That way, conversations remain private inside without distracting the rest of the office.
If you’re wondering if a sound masking installation is right for you, read on to discover the several benefits they offer modern businesses. If you’re interested in sound masking for your company, contact Delaware Audio Visual to learn more.
Minimize Distractions to Get More Done
It’s hard to crank numbers or write a report while colleagues are talking loudly across the room. You might find yourself accidentally eavesdropping— what did Shelly do over the weekend? Even behind closed doors, meeting room conversations often overflow to the rest of the office floor.
But with a sound masking system, any conversations or sounds fifteen feet away will fade out of earshot. Your team can now put their heads down and get work done without day-long distractions, which is especially helpful in open floorplans.
Keep Meetings and Phone Calls Private
On the other side of distractions, your staff also does not appreciate feeling spied on or listened to all day. Whether one is conducting an important client meeting, a video conference with remote staff, or chit-chatting at the watercooler, everyone appreciates privacy.
When offices are too quiet and walls are thin, it may feel like there’s nowhere to go for peace and quiet. Sound masking solves this, granting your team private spaces anywhere loudspeakers are connected.
Create a More Comfortable Environment
Have you ever worked in an office that was so silent, you felt like everyone could hear you take a bite into an apple? No one enjoys an uncomfortably quiet office space. Your staff may feel apprehensive to approach others and engage in conversations because everyone will be able to hear them.
