Better Technology Means Better Acoustic Privacy

Most business owners or managers check out the aesthetic look and feel of a building, as well as the physical square footage when choosing where to office in an effort to find the best space for their workers and company. All too often they overlook acoustics and speech privacy, never realizing what a high cost an overly noisy office demands or the lack of confidential privacy office-wide.

How to Achieve Speech Privacy

Speech privacy may seem like an unattainable ideal, or at the very least an unrealistic one. However, that’s a common misunderstanding- speech privacy is a measurable, quantifiable number on the privacy index. The speech privacy index serves as a means of measuring how intelligible speech is in a given area. If it’s quite intelligible, meaning people in surrounding areas can easily understand it, then that area has a low privacy index score.

If your office has a low privacy index score, then it’s important to understand that there are only three ways to improve it: absorb, block, or cover the noise. These three techniques are commonly referred to as the ABC’s of sound masking. Absorbing and blocking techniques usually involve altering the existing building with not a a huge return of investment. In contrast, covering noise is highly effective and works with the existing structure without alteration.

The VoiceArrest Advantage

VoiceArrest Sound Masking SystemCovering solutions are based on the idea of masking sound so that it is not distracting or leaked unnecessarily. Interestingly, it is not a new technology. In fact, even the Romans intentionally placed fountains nearby their villas to drown out the ambient street noise. Since then, sound masking technology has only developed more, including the Department of Defense who has been developing it since the 1960s.

The VoiceArrest system combines the latest innovations in speaker technology with a highly-targeted frequency spectrum to provide the most effective sound masking technology to date.
