Sound Masking and the Modern Workplace

Sound Masking and the Modern Workplace


Collaboration is such an important aspect to any successful workplace. The open plan office is a very debated about layout in today’s modern office, but here at Remark, we are firm advocates for the open plan office, when designed with acoustics in mind.

Like many companies today, Remark have an open office structure. Open plan holds much more flexibility than your traditional office layout and encourages collaboration between co-workers. But, one of the main concerns of the open plan office is noise.

The workplace is becoming more and more open and flexible. Social attitudes are changing to create a lifestyle workplace, gone are the days of a 9 to 5, designated seating system. With hot desking and flexible working on the rise, the modern office needs to be more equipped with technology than ever before. A sound masking system is a great technology to add into your new and improved workplace.

What is sound masking?

A sound masking system is a technology, that when installed correctly, makes unwanted conversations and other background noises less audible. In turn, this decreases distractions and enhances workplace productivity and wellbeing.

A sound masking system is a series of emitters, installed strategically around the treated area. Installed this way the system provides a space with complete coverage. By injecting the frequency’s found in the human voice, the system creates a blanket of sound over the designated area. This creates an ambient level of noise for human speech to adhere to.

Open plan offices are great for creativity but can lack productivity due to distractions. Our sound masking system can enhance your workspace, so productivity is increased but creativity remains. Sound masking for open plan offices is an effective method to reduce the overall background noise level.
