Sound Masking for Architects

architects, Facility Managers Save Millions, sound masking for architectsArchitects often specify our sound masking solutions when designing new buildings as well as refitting existing buildings. Because our sound masking systems can solve acoustic issues without sacrificing design aesthetics, architects are able to create the ideal acoustic environment for their clients while maintaining the stylistic architecture they designed. For example partitions and cubicles are no longer an acoustical necessity since sound masking can provide effective speech privacy and reduce noise distractions.

Sound masking works by adding sound to a space to actually make the space seem quieter. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true. This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech.

Cambridge Sound Management is the largest sound masking provider in the world, offering both indirect and direct field sound masking. The QtPro direct field sound masking system uniformly disperses a pre-tuned sound masking signal directly into the workspace for
consistent and comfortable ambient sound throughout the space. From a design standpoint, the QtPro direct sound masking speakers are small, and can easily fit into existing building layouts. Or if there is an open ceiling, since the speakers are small, they do not stand out and there are flexible mounting options. The DynasoundPro Networked sound masking system is the only indirect field sound masking system that allows each speaker to be controlled remotely via software and individually addressable speakers, which drastically improves the consistency of sound masking coverage and makes it the best indirect sound masking system available. From a design standpoint, DynasoundPro sound masking speakers can be advantageous since they can be installed inside of the ceiling plenum and hidden from view.  Additionally, there are speaker options for under the floor or inside the wall.

Architects often specify our sound masking solutions when designing new buildings as well as refitting existing buildings.
