Office noise and lack of speech privacy negatively affect employees’ concentration, slow task performance, increase the likelihood of errors, and threaten the continuity of creative thought. Acoustic problems also impact comfort, stress levels, and morale.

Focus AV has teamed with the LogiSon® Acoustic Network to address this problem by distributing an engineered background sound throughout the workplace. The sound covers conversations and noise, while remaining comfortable and unobtrusive. This technology is one of the smallest investments you’ll make in your facility, but one that can greatly impact your bottom line by defeating workplace noise, striving for silence.

Too often, workplace noise control and speech privacy strategies aim to make a space as silent as possible. There is an acoustic comfort zone, but as with light, temperature and humidity, it’s not zero.

This ideal acoustic comfort zone is determined by the workplace’s noise floor which is the level of continuous sound that characterizes the space. If the noise floor is too high, the environment is irritating and tiring. If it is too low, conversations and noises are easily overheard, affecting employee speech privacy and concentration.

In open-plan offices, the noise floor is usually so low that conversations are intelligible from up to 50 feet (15.2 meters) away. Noticeable rises and falls in sound over time, and across the workplace, make it even more difficult to ‘block out’ the distractions caused by noise problems.

Achieving acoustic comfort through sound masking is part of a proactive approach to providing employees with the productive space they need to excel. It is the only acoustic treatment that can maintain the noise floor at a level between 42 and 48 dBA.

Acoustical control benefits of sound masking include:

  • Increased speech privacy
  • Improved concentration
  • Reduced project costs
  • Simultaneous paging and music
  • Reduced noise problems
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased facility flexibility
  • Quick return on investment

 

Focus AV offers both hardware and software-based controls allowing you to manage the settings and zoning for a loudspeaker,a group of loudspeakers, or an entire campus from the control panel or your computer using the Acoustic Network™ Manager Software. Changes can be made in minutes following renovations, moving furniture or personnel. The ease of future reconfiguration and low energy needs reduce lifecycle costs while ensuring peak performance and occupant satisfaction at all times.

The LogiSon Sound Masking System is a revolutionary sound masking, paging and music system. Its networked technology helps ensure you obtain the best possible results with speed, ease, and versatility. Focus AV offers expert support in implementing this unique sound marking system in your work setting. Increased comfort and silence can indeed be golden for your organization.
