Noise isn’t just a distraction; it’s a privacy concern for any environment whether it’s a financial institution or a healthcare facility. American Design Associates offers sound management and masking services to promote a positive work environment and ensure client confidentiality. Learn more about sound control, and discover how it can improve your office.
The ABC’s of Sound Control
Sound control is best approached by the three pillars, or the ABC’s, of noise management.
Absorbing – Ambient noise is absorbed by acoustic wall panels, specialized carpeting, and ceiling panels.
Blocking – Noise is blocked by a solid barrier, such as walls or partitions. Specially designed ceiling panels block sound transmission from entering open areas.
Covering – Specially tuned speakers emit low levels of noise that interfere with the frequencies of human speech. Sound masking covers up unwanted sounds or distracting noise.
Increase Productivity and Positivity
Sound management and masking services are absolutely necessary for open space environments such as call centers when multiple team members are speaking to clients at the same time. The constant distraction can make it difficult for employees to complete simple tasks, decreasing overall productivity throughout the office. By implementing sound control in a professional environment, employees can focus on their work easily. The lack of interruptions and frustrations creates a positive place for staff members to work and thrive.
Ensure Employee/ Client Confidentiality
According to a recent study, 53% of employees reported having overheard private company information in the office. A lack of privacy introduces a stressful environment for staff members, and it presents a legal concern for the company. By implementing sound control services, you can also ensure the privacy of your clients, improving overall relationships and retention rates.
