VoiceArrest Sound Masking System
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is measurably the
most effective sound masking system available. Here are a
few of the benefits you will enjoy as a result of new advanced
Comfortable, Stress Relieving Privacy
You may recall that workers in open-style offices with only
low-level noise experienced significantly higher levels of
stress, made 40 percent fewer attempts to solve difficult
problems, and made only half as many ergonomic adjustments to
their workstations as did their colleagues in quiet offices. You
also know how distracting an open office’s conversations are. As
a result, the VoiceArrest™ was designed with acoustic comfort in
mind. Gone are the distractions that make it so difficult to
concentrate. Gone are the worries about who is overhearing your
confidential conversations. And gone is an office environment
that adds stress and stress-related injuries to its employees’
Through the use of true four-channel speech privacy
technology, the VoiceArrest™ System simulates the gentle
whooshing sound of a high-end HVAC system that covers
conversations and other distractions. It’s like listening to
quadraphonic surround sound – the sound is full, yet you can’t
pinpoint exactly where it’s coming from. It uniformly blends
into the office background virtually unnoticed – so natural that
you won’t even realize it’s there.
Consistently Higher Privacy
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System provides your workplace
with a new, more effective level of privacy. Through the use of
Direct Field Technology, the background masking that is
distributed throughout your office is perfectly balanced in both
volume as well as frequency content.
This improves your privacy in two important ways. You
1. Greater levels of privacy per decibel of sound.
2. This higher level of privacy is consistent at all points
within the treated area.
Quieter, Less Intrusive Privacy
The spatial and spectral uniformity delivered by the
VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System permits its operation at
substantially lower sound levels than competitive systems, while
still maintaining masking effectiveness. To put it another way,
it provides more privacy per decibel of sound produced. While
other masking systems must be operated at 48-51 dB in order to
provide acceptable privacy conditions for most occupants, the
VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is normally operated at 45 dB
under the same conditions. The increased effectiveness provided
by the VoiceArrest™ System allows you to have both equivalent
privacy and quieter, less intrusive sound, or if your
application is unusual and requires greater privacy than most,
you can now use the higher settings to meet those needs.
Placement of Privacy
A common issue in most offices is that the above-ceiling air
plenum is shared by both open and closed office areas. For
reasons of economy, the separating walls often do not extend
more than an inch or two above the suspended acoustical tile
Therefore, when masking is delivered to the open area at an
appropriate level, sound in a enclosed office typically builds
up to excessive levels, even if there are no masking
loudspeakers above it. Until now, the only solution was to
“starve” the adjacent open areas.
Direct Field Technology used by the VoiceArrest™ System means
the masking sound intended for the open office area is entirely
restricted to the open area. There is no unwanted bleed over
effect into enclosed offices or conference rooms. If masking is
desired in the enclosed space, a separate zone can be provided,
and its level is controlled independently.
Privacy + Paging + Music
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System can also easily upgrade
to add paging and/or music to your environment using the same
speakers that deploy the sound masking. You will be amazed when
you hear our paging system. Due to the quality of our speakers
and their placement, we provide the cleanest paging in the
market without the usual startle effect. Background music can be
added from a wide variety of sources.
Cost Effective Privacy
The VoiceArrest™ Speech Sound Masking System meets a
compelling need by providing state-of-the-art speech privacy at
a modest price. Given the technological and performance
advantages the VoiceArrest™ System offers compared to the old
style plenum-based systems, most people expect it to be
substantially more expensive. However, typical to true
disruptive technologies, these new enhancements are accomplished
in a way that allows them to be offered at competitive pricing
even when compared to older, less effective products.
The VoiceArrest™ Sound Masking System is even more
cost-effective when compared to other methods of increasing
privacy, such as upgrading ceiling tiles, adding absorbent wall
panels, or raising furniture panel heights.
