Sound Masking

One of the most difficult things about any office space is managing the levels of noise so that employees are able to concentrate and get their work done efficiently. A large facility can often become burdened by a cacophony of noise which makes it difficult to focus. To ensure that your employees are able to do their best work and enjoy maximum productivity, sound masking will mitigate noise levels and ensure that your environment is comfortable for everyone.

Since 1998, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture has been a trusted source for any and all commercial furniture needs, including furniture supply, installation, interior design, and commercial multimedia services. We provide sound masking technology to clients throughout Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and the US.

What is sound masking?

Sound masking introduces an unobtrusive background noise into your corporate environment which effectively covers up human speech sounds, making it easier to focus on your job. The sound itself is similar to airflow and will provide a comfortable level of background noise that will increase the privacy in your building and make it difficult to understand nearby conversations, increasing employee productivity and efficiency.

Sound masking is an important consideration for any open environment, which might include:

  • Offices
  • Laboratories
  • Schools
  • Medical Facilities
  • And more

How does sound masking impact productivity?

A noisy open-office environment can reduce productivity by up to 66%. That’s because when employees are distracted by trying to make sense of nearby speech sounds, they’re unable to focus completely on the task at hand and are more likely to make mistakes and take longer to complete their tasks. By effectively covering up distracting background noises, sound masking technology will ensure that your employees are able to focus on the work in front of them instead of the conversations around them.

If your open office layout is creating distractions for your employees, be sure to get in touch with the experts at Edwards & Hill about our sound masking capabilities. We’ll ensure that the technology works for the needs of your facility and makes the most of your space.
