As we help employers improve their workplace acoustics with our panel products, we always appreciate other companies that educate the public about this vital topic. Cambridge Sound Management has a very clear explanation of another aspect of noise control in the workplace that is becoming more and more popular.

Their illustration of a flashlight turned on in a bright room makes it easy to understand how a system such as the Qt Quiet technology works to make noises seem less intrusive. The use of sound masking equipment in conjunction with physical barriers like panel extenders is often the ideal approach to creating the productive work environment you need. Both can be installed in today’s modern, open office environments to quickly and affordably upgrade the sound environment with minimal disruption to workers.
