Is soundmasking installed all throughout or just some parts of an office?
When designing a soundmasking system the specific needs of a work environment must be considered. A well designed, installed, and tuned soundmasking system will not draw attention to itself. An office building can have soundmasking all throughout, or only on certain floors, portions of floors, or specific rooms. The system can be designed to work more heavily in some areas and less in others. It can be used to minimize distractions in one large open room located next to an executive conference room, where it is used to protect confidentiality. This multi-use configuration is referred to as “zoning”. Zones allow for flexibility of use and is a major consideration in the design stage of a facility-specific soundmasking system.
