Sound masking uses a familiar background sound to "mask" human speech and other sounds in a given area to make your work environment more comfortable. While sound masking is mostly used to protect privacy or confidentiality, it is also used to help increase workers' concentration levels and productivity.
Sound masking systems are primarily used with either white or pink noise. Pink noise is typically a blend of high and low frequencies that work great for relieving stress while also keeping you alert and more energized. White noise is used most often because it contains sounds across all frequencies and helps extremely well with concentration. Sound masking doesn't always have to be loud to be effective. It can be tuned and adjusted to fit the specs you want for any environment.
Sound masking speakers are installed in such ways that one cannot even determine where the masking sound is coming from. Usually upward-firing speakers installed above or in rafters of suspended ceilings fill the occupied space below. These speakers can be installed above suspended ceilings, below floors and in any open structure.
Sound masking is the only practice of acoustical treatment that can be used to addresses all sound paths.
