Sound Masking / Speech Privacy
VoiceArrest Sound Masking System
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is measurably the most effective sound masking system available. This new advanced technology provides several benefits for just about any workplace. Here are a few of the benefits you will enjoy as a result of new advanced technology.
Comfortable, Stress Relieving Privacy
Open office floor plans are praised for their encouragement of team building and communication. But these open-style offices can also create increased levels of stress among employees. Even low-levels of noise at work reduce problem solving skills by almost 40 percent and significantly raise levels of stress when compared to those colleagues in quiet offices.
These struggles with stress and concentration are primarily a result of the constant distractions of surrounding discussions and a lack of privacy for confidential conversations. The VoiceArrest™ system was designed specifically with acoustic comfort in mind. Gone are the constant distractions that make it difficult to concentrate. Gone are the worries about a lack of privacy for confidential conversations. And gone is the environment that adds stress to its employees’ lives!
Through the use of true four-channel speech privacy technology, the VoiceArrest™ System simulates the gentle whooshing sound of a high-end HVAC system that covers conversations and other distractions. It’s like listening to quadraphonic surround sound – the sound is full, yet you can’t pinpoint exactly where it’s coming from. It uniformly blends into the office background virtually unnoticed – so natural that you won’t even realize it’s there.
Consistently Higher Privacy
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System utilizes developments in sound technology and to provide a more consistent and effective level of privacy throughout the treated space.
By using direct field technology, the sound masking blends evenly into the background, with a more uniform sound in both volume and frequency distribution. This improves your privacy in two important ways:
Greater levels of privacy per decibel of sound output.
Consistent privacy at all points within the coverage area
Quieter, Less Intrusive Privacy
The spatial and spectral uniformity delivered by the VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System permits its operation at substantially lower sound levels than competitive systems, while still maintaining masking effectiveness. In other words, it provides more privacy per decibel of sound produced. While other masking systems must be operated at 48-51 dB in order to provide acceptable privacy conditions for most occupants, the VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is normally operated at 45 dB under the same conditions. The increased effectiveness provided by the VoiceArrest™ System allows you to have both equivalent privacy and quieter, less intrusive sound, or if your application is unusual and requires greater privacy than most, you can now use the higher settings to meet those needs.
Controlled Placement of Privacy
With other masking systems, the air space above the ceiling is utilized to distribute the white noise for sound masking. When the masking is delivered at appropriate volumes above the open cubicles, the sound also echoes in the ceiling above the closed offices even though there are no loudspeakers present; the result is often excessive noise levels in the closed office. The old systems could only resolve this problem by lowering the settings which resulted in less consistent privacy across the open office space.
The Direct Field Technology used by the VoiceArrest™ System allows the masking sound intended for the open office area to be limited to the open area, with no unwanted bleed over into offices or conference rooms. Sound masking in any enclosed spaces would be set as a separate zone controlled independently with its own levels and settings.
Privacy + Paging + Music
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System can also easily upgrade to add paging and/or music to your environment using the same speakers that deploy the sound masking. You will be amazed when you hear our paging system. Due to the quality of our speakers and their placement, we provide the cleanest paging in the market without the usual startle effect. Background music can be added from a wide variety of sources.
Cost Effective Privacy
Businesses and other facilities are looking for a cost-effective way to provide speech privacy. The VoiceArrest™ Speech Privacy Sound Masking System can meet this need. While providing state of the art speech privacy, the VoiceArrest™ system utilizes more effective technology and methods, allowing them to offer their technological and performance enhancements at a modest, completive price, even when compared to the older, less effective products. The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is even more cost-effective when compared to other methods of increasing privacy, such as upgrading ceiling tiles, adding absorbent wall panels, or raising furniture panel heights.
