Sound Management, Unmasked

Sound Management, Unmasked

When designing a space, all aspects need to be considered to ensure a comfortable, pleasing environment. This includes features such as lighting, temperature, and especially, noise. By eliminating noise distractions and increasing comfort, sound masking has been proven to increase worker productivity in open office environments. In addition, it creates privacy of enclosed meeting and office spaces from common areas, rendering speech unintelligible. This makes it a desirable solution for doctors’ offices, law offices, financial institutions, hotel lobbies and more.

Outdoor TV – a “Bright” Idea

Outdoor TV – a “Bright” Idea

Summer in West Michigan. We can’t wait to get out of the house to enjoy the outdoors, starting in our own backyard! Whether you’re entertaining friends under your covered patio, experiencing the splash from your teenager’s famous cannonball poolside or catching our Detroit Tigers’ or Lions’ game at your outdoor bar, a well-placed television is a great source of enjoyment. All the sun and splashing, however, can take a toll on the TV, so it’s important that the display be specifically designed to stand up to what mother nature, and rowdy teenagers, can dish out! We have just the thing!

When Lightning Strikes and Beyond: Why Power Management is So Important

Protect your systems from everyday power spikes for improved performance and longevity

When Lightning Strikes and Beyond: Why Power Management is So Important

Time and time again we hear the devastating recounts of lightning strikes critically disabling a home’s electronic systems. To add to the expense and frustration, these overwhelming losses are seldom covered under your warranty as the failure was not the fault of the equipment and because additional, nearly undetectable damage may have been caused to the circuits. These power issues extend beyond the rare lightning strike. “Dirty” power, power abnormalities that include frequency or voltage variations, low power factors and surges, critically impacts your system’s performance and lifespan.
