What is sound and audio masking?
Did you know noise has a direct impact on a person’s ability to complete a task in a timely and productive manner? It also has a negative impact on a person’s workplace wellbeing and stress levels.
Audio masking systems makes a building appear quieter by raising the ambient noise level in an office environment.
It is an effective method that, when installed correctly, has the potential to bolster acoustical privacy and reduce distracting noises, which in turn helps to improve the overall office comfort.
By creating ambient background noise, our systems are engineered to match the frequency of the human voice for greater speech privacy. Adding noise to a space may sound counter-intuitive, but our solution reduces the intelligibility of human speech. When you can’t understand what someone is saying, it becomes less distracting and you probably don’t notice them at all.
We can help you create a balanced, comfortable acoustic working environment.

Due to its 360° driver technology, the installation needs fewer speakers to work effectively compared to conventional systems.
This new solution has the ability to increase the privacy around the areas treated. Not only is the installation of this technology ideal to increase privacy in businesses, but it can also help to increase performance levels, eliminate distractions, and enhance the overall wellbeing of employees.
It is no secret that privacy is an issue in the modern workplace. Open plan offices, glass meeting rooms and break out areas are great for collaboration and teamwork but more often than not, they lack sound privacy.
Sound masking is the addition of low-level noise into the environment to cover up unwanted background noise and increase privacy. A lack of sound privacy can result in dissatisfied and unproductive employees in fact, in our Noise and Wellbeing at Work survey it was found that 64% of people have overheard a confidential or sensitive conversation in the workplace that they shouldn’t have.
With the installation of sound masking in your meeting rooms, open-plan offices and break out areas, it can help to protect client information, confidential business plans and sensitive conversations.

GP SURGERIES AND WAITING ROOMS
It’s not just the office that suffers from a lack of privacy, 51% of people have overheard a confidential topic being discussed outside of work, in GP surgeries, hospitals and waiting rooms. Privacy is a fundamental human right, yet in places where you think you would receive the highest amount of privacy like GP Surgeries, waiting rooms and healthcare facilities, there seems to be a lack of it.
While healthcare environments continue to improve, striving to provide better patient outcomes and experiences, many hospital environments remain extremely noisy, disrupting patients and causing privacy concerns
Remark Group can provide solutions that not only increase the privacy around GP rooms and waiting rooms, but can also be utilised in patient rooms and healthcare facilities to promote rest and relaxation.
Our systems provides an ambient background noise level that reduces background noise and conversations, meaning patient privacy is restored and their overall comfort in places that could cause stress are reduced.
As advocates of workplace wellbeing and specialists in sound masking, the introduction of soundscapes into our portfolio of services was only natural.
To combat stress and boost feelings of wellbeing, Remark Group have created their own soundscape solution.
Office soundscapes can also be integrated with our sound masking to provide a level of speech privacy as well as a wellbeing inspired environment.
61% of UK Office Workers say that they are interrupted by noise at least five to ten times a day. The interviewees then went onto report that it takes an average of eleven minutes to get back into a task after being distracted by noise, which means between 55 minutes and 110 minutes of a day are wasted just from noise distractions.
Over half of UK offices workers say that their workplace does not encourage productivity with sixty-five percent stating that their workplace impacts on their motivation to work.
For productivity levels in the workplace to increase we seriously need to think about the working environment and what employers can do to ensure that their employees are at their most productive.
Our systems are designed to deliver an unobtrusive background noise which imitate airflow, masking background noises in the office environment and thereby reducing distractions and increasing productivity.
