In an office with a large open workspace, sound travels. Whether it’s a telephone conversation, the sound of keyboards clacking, or chairs moving, these unavoidable sounds can cause extreme distraction. With help from Netco technicians, and sound masking technology we can help.
What exactly is sound masking technology? You may have heard of it in another name; white noise. Sound masking technology emits a soft, inconspicuous sound through a loudspeaker system, making it so that the sounds that happen in an office environment don’t travel and distract the whole team.
There are many things to consider when installing a sound masking system, which means there’s more to it than plug and play. Netco technicians take into account not only the size of the space, but also the type of ceiling, wall coverings, and furnishings, not to mention how many people will be occupying the space. All these factors have a direct impact on the success of the sound masking system. Not set up properly, and it becomes ineffective and/or irritating.
The benefits of sound masking have been the subject of many studies, but what it comes down to is that it works. By ‘dulling the roar’, so to speak, and eliminating the sounds of undesirable conversation, and other office noises, you and your staff will be faced with fewer distractions. Fewer distractions mean you can concentrate better, which will increase productivity measurably.
