The Role of Sound Masking in Smaller Spaces

June 15, 2023

Ken Peck from AtlasIED illustrates the role of sound masking, particularly in small office environments. By using an analogy of a running sink, he explains that sound masking is a method used to reduce distractions and maintain privacy. The need for sound masking extends to various sectors, including healthcare and finance, where confidentiality is paramount. Despite office layouts ranging from open spaces to rooms with thin walls or shared ductwork, sound masking protects speech privacy, reduces distractions, enhances productivity, and improves workplace comfort. Ken Peck emphasizes that in the ABCs of office acoustics—absorption, blocking, and covering—sound masking stands out as the most effective and least costly solution.
