Sound masking works when the emitters are placed near the listener. A sound masking system placed inside a server room will not mask the sound. If a space experiences high volume from nearby server room, a sound masking system placed in that room may help reduce the noise level.
Connectivity Point can assess the environment and determine the best solution. When assessing and designing for acoustics, Connectivity Point adheres to the “ABCs”:
- ABSORB – This involves the use of acoustic tiles, sound insulating wall materials, artwork or tapestries to help absorb sound.
- BLOCK – In some cases sound insulation can be achieved through specific placement and style of building materials like walls, doors, glass, and insulation.
- COVER – Through the use of sound masking, artificial sound, music, television, or a fan in your space, you can cover sound with other noise to distract you from the originating sound.
