Sound Masking

Protect Confidential Information and Prevent Distractions

In today’s world, many office buildings and other facilities have implemented open floor plans. Though visually appealing and great for building a collaborative atmosphere for your company, open floor plans can be detrimental to productivity. This environment is naturally collaborative, but it can be distracting when you are trying to work on your own. Because of this, an array of different technologies have been developed to help curtail this trend. For many years, Aufderworld has been designing and installing sound masking devices so employees can be more efficient, and guests and tenants can block out distracting noises from others.

Learn How Sound Masking Systems Work

Sound masking systems are unique in the way they function. They do not cause a blatant distraction from the office, but more so a subtle one. There are a variety of different sound masking devices on the market. Soft Db products are one of the more popular devices. Each device is designed to adjust to the acoustics of the room. Additionally, they mask the sound by radiating the white noise in the room to reverberate throughout the space, which creates a quiet noise that overrides other distractions.

Sound masking systems are useful for a variety of reasons. They can block noise as well as provide white noise if a space is too quiet. Sound masking systems are typically comprised of three components, each of which we can custom design. The three main components are:

  • Sensors
    The sensors in sound masking systems are designed to constantly detect noise levels. Based on how loud or quiet the noise in a specific room is, the sensors detect the change in levels and send a message to the controller to change the noise level emanating from the speakers.
  • Controllers
    The controllers receive messages from the sensors installed throughout the room. The controllers then emit a white noise that automatically adjusts itself based on the noise level in the room.
  • Speakers
    The speakers will be spread throughout your workspace and aimed upward. They are aimed upward so the white noise emitted from the controllers bounces off the ceiling and goes back to the work area.
