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
A frequently misunderstood fact is that privacy is a measurable, quantifiable figure and not just an ideal. In fact, an entire privacy index exists just so you can measure speech privacy, or lack thereof, in an office. For example, when acousticians say that an office has a low privacy index score, what they mean is that there is not a high level of speech privacy. They base this on the privacy index, which determines how intelligible speech is in a given space.
Interestingly, there are three ways you can improve your speech privacy score:
- Absorbing noise
- Blocking noise
- Covering noise
These three ways are commonly referred to as the "ABC's" of speech privacy. Since noise frequently results in worker distraction, client/customer/patient dissatisfaction, and a lack of confidential privacy, it's a problem that must be dealt with- and fortunately, it's easier and less expensive to solve than you might think!
The VoiceArrest Advantage
The absolute most effective (and most likely least expensive since it doesn't alter existing walls or flooring) means of dealing with unwanted noise is covering. Covering solutions - the "C" in ABCs - have been around since the Romans installed fountains in their villas to drown out the noise of the crowds in their streets, and sound masking technology has evolved considerably since then. Modern sound masking solutions were initially developed by the Department of Defense and have been in wide use 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.
