  • In newer commercial buildings, employees may express dissatisfaction with being able to hear people talking, as well as concern over their own level of speech privacy. Additionally, they may be all too frequently disrupted by noises such as ringing telephones, mechanical equipment, exterior traffic, and footfall. If the organization had considered acoustics from the start, they would have had the opportunity to apply various strategies. However, at this stage, they typically need to adopt solutions that offer the greatest opportunity for improvement while creating the least upheaval in an already-occupied environment. One such solution is a sound masking system. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
