The Serenity can reduce sound by cutting down on the harsh echoes and reverberated sound reflecting off hard surfaces, making it more tolerable and comfortable for everyone.
Sound Masking Sound masking systems emits a soft, inconspicuous background sound with the use of a loudspeaker system. It can be compared to softly blowing air. The ambient sound level becomes more uniform and otherwise noisy distractions are muffled by the sound masking. Though adding more sound appears to contradict the goal of controlling noise, it’s a necessary step. It covers up conversations and noise occurring at a distance and also reduces the intelligibility and disruptive impact of those happening closer to you, making them less distracting.
The result: Employees are less distracted, they are able to concentrate better, and their productivity rises measurably.
Taming Office Noise with Sound Masking
With the gain in popularity of open-plan office design, integrating acoustics into your workplace strategy is an important part of creating a productive environment. With companies overestimating the ability of their employees to drown out noise with headphones, acoustics are all too often an afterthought in workplace design and construction. However, the consequences of not doing so are quite significant.
One of the main complaints from employees is that they are constantly distracted by unwanted noise around them. Prolonged noise distractions caused by poorly designed office acoustics can have a negative impact on productivity and efficiency at work.
We know that an office can be too quiet. Working in ‘pin-drop’ or ‘library-like’ conditions is awkward. You feel uncomfortable talking because you know everyone can hear you and you are distracted by any little noise. This condition usually occurs when only absorption and blocking are used. On the other hand, staying in a noisy environment can generate problems of concentration and general annoyance, with the consequent reduction of working productivity. The ideal work environment should have a healthy amount of background sound. Just not loud enough to be able to decipher what the people around us are talking about.
Reducing Noise Pollution in the Workspace
So how do we manage noise pollution ~ Add More Sound!
Sound masking systems emits a soft, inconspicuous background sound with the use of a loudspeaker system. It can be compared to softly blowing air. The ambient sound level becomes more uniform and otherwise noisy distractions are muffled by the sound masking.
Though adding more sound appears to contradict the goal of controlling noise, it is a necessary step. It covers up conversations and noise occurring at a distance and reduces the intelligibility and disruptive impact of those happening closer to you, making them less distracting.
Employees are less distracted, they can concentrate better, and their productivity rises measurably.
Sound masking works to cover an entire workspace. When installed correctly, the sound masking benefits will follow you, no matter where you are in the general area. These systems are also different because they are specifically designed to fall within the range of a comfortable frequency for the human ear. So, as an audio solution, it can be both practical and calming.

Acoustic Partitions to Help With COVID-19
Despite a raft of restrictions such as gathering limitations the government wants to get the economy going again. As reopening schools and workplaces call for new safety measures, acoustic partitions are an effective way to minimise space to accommodate smaller groups. Whilst maintaining regulations and restricting the number of people who have access to a given space at any one time.
Evidence suggests that Covid 19 can spread through airborne respiratory particles. Once in the open position and the mechanical seals are activated the acoustic partition not only acts as a sound barrier but as a Covid divider by blocking the flow of air from one space to the next, whilst also providing a physical barrier to maintain spacing requirements. Manufactured from the ceiling to floor acoustic partitions safely allow multiple activities to happen in close proximity to one another while resuming the new-normal business practices of avoiding crowds in a single space.
Acoustic partitions can be found in schools, hotels, offices, meeting rooms, conference centres and places of worship and can be supplied in an almost endless choice of colours and easy to clean surface finishes from laminates and veneers to dry wipe.
As businesses restart their operation there is concern about the best way to reconfigure the workspace layout. Acoustic partitions are not only an effective way to maintain the increasing demand for social distancing but there is the potential to maximise revenue by sub-dividing larger areas into smaller safer spaces. Acoustic partitions are a great way to get more out of your space allowing it to be maximised and re-configured to suit your needs.
If you need to re-think your workplace through and beyond Covid-19, Moving Designs Ltd are happy to assist with the safer return to the workplace or classroom with our high specification acoustic partitions Whatever your requirement Moving Designs can assist in making your space more productive.
