Benefits of Sound Masking Technology
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is measurably the most effective sound masking system available. Here are a few of the benefits you will enjoy as a result of new advanced technology.
Many businesses use sound masking technology to counteract worker distraction. This makes sense because workers are distracted more than 2 hours every day, losing productivity while simultaneously making more errors and experiencing more stress. The introduction of low-level background sound allows workers to stay more focused and therefore be more productive since they’re not held victim to every passer-by. Studies also show that workers in acoustically treated environments experience the reverse of the above problems- they’re more focused, less error-prone, and actually better at problem solving.
The VoiceArrest System delivers all this via true four-channel speech privacy technology. Comparable to the gentle sound of an HVAC system, this background noise is barely noticeable.
Consistent, Measurable Privacy
There’s no point in dealing with distraction and confidentiality with an incredibly loud system. The spatial and spectral uniformity delivered by the VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System permits its operation at substantially lower sound levels than competitive systems, while still maintaining masking effectiveness. Basically, the VoiceArrest System provides more privacy per decibel of sound produced.
Case in point: While other masking systems must be operated at 48-51 dB in order to provide acceptable privacy conditions for most occupants, the VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is normally operated at 45 dB under the same conditions. The increased effectiveness provided by the VoiceArrest™ System allows you to have both equivalent privacy and quieter, less intrusive sound, or if your application is unusual and requires greater privacy than most, you can now use the higher settings to meet those needs.
Controlled Placement of Speakers
The VoiceArrest Sound Masking System is ideal in that it offers Direct Field technology. Unlike other systems that are plenum-based, direct field technology is installed directly in with ceiling tiles. This controlled, precise placement means that the sound masking is delivered uniformly to specific areas. This is much better than plenum-based systems that operate in the shared air above open and closed offices, resulting in inconsistent masking that builds up or is starves different offices.
Privacy + Paging + Music
If you have paging or music needs, the VoiceArrest™ System can also easily using the same speakers that deploy the sound masking. And unlike many startling systems, our paging system is clean and precise due to the quality of our speakers and their placement. Background music can be added from a wide variety of sources, so the sky’s the limit there.
Cost Effective Privacy
The VoiceArrest™ Speech Sound Masking System meets a compelling need by providing state-of-the-art speech privacy at a modest price. Given the technological and performance advantages the VoiceArrest™ offers compared to the old style plenum-based systems, most people expect it to be substantially more expensive. However, typical to true disruptive technologies, these new enhancements are accomplished in a way that allows them to be offered at competitive pricing even when compared to older, less effective products.
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is even more cost-effective when compared to other methods of increasing privacy, such as upgrading ceiling tiles, adding absorbent wall panels, or raising furniture panel heights.
