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.
