SOUND MASKING FOR OFFICES

Improving Your Workspace
54% OF UK OFFICE WORKERS REPORT THAT NOISE IS AN ISSUE AT WORK

Our bespoke sound masking solutions will improve confidentiality, improve concentration and lead to increased productivity as less time is lost overhearing casual conversation or intrusive noises.

Office acoustics conditions in the workplace have been noted as a leading source of dissatisfaction when compared to other elements that contribute to overall office comfort such as office layout, furnishing, thermal comfort, lighting and general cleanliness.

Remark group can provide bespoke sound masking for offices that allows businesses to achieve 100% privacy – without sacrificing the design of the room. We can ensure that conversations remain private.

SOUND MASKING FOR OPEN PLAN OFFICES

Open plan offices often have a bad reputation, particularly with noise and privacy issues and there have been multiple articles and news pieces on how open plan offices can be bad for collaboration. It was found that 61% of UK Office Workers say that they are interrupted by noise at least five to ten times a day.

Here at the Remark Group, we are strong advocates for the open plan office, when it is designed with acoustics in mind. Sound masking for open plan offices can help dilute the background noises and interruptions that cause employees to be distracted. By adding a layer of sound, background conversations become less audible and therefore less distracting.

Sound masking can help restore your open plan office to the collaborative and productive workplace it set out to be.

WHY MORE COMPANIES ARE CHOOSING SOUND MASKING FOR THEIR WORKPLACE

THE STATS

According to our Noise and Wellbeing at Work survey, sudden bursts of noise are the most irritating in the workplace, with the most annoying being:

SOUND MASKING FOR MEETING ROOMS

Remark Group’s omni-directional sound dispersion sound masking technology adds a low-level background sound inside and outside of the meeting room. The background sound is optimised to mask human speech which increases the privacy in and around the meeting rooms tenfold.

Sixty-four percent of UK office workers have overheard a confidential or sensitive conversation in the workplace that they shouldn’t have, because of this almost half of office workers are reluctant to discuss a private or sensitive issue in the workplace.

In today’s modern office the lack of privacy is a real problem, particularly in between meeting rooms. The utilisation of glass partitions and large folding doors in between meeting rooms means that noise seeps through to the adjacent room and surrounding areas. Acoustics and privacy are often overlooked during the design.

When it comes to businesses in the financial sector, it’s even more important that conversations, plans and internal communications are kept private and confidential.
