Planning for Sound Masking During Construction
While a sound masking system can be installed in almost any existing facility, it's usually easiest and most effective to plan for it during construction. There are several factors to consider:
- How will the building be used?
- How many square feet will there be?
- Will there be cubicles or individual offices? How many of each?
- Where are the main areas that need to be sound-proofed?
As you answer these questions, you'll have a better idea of how many zones to create and where.

Designing Sound Reduction
As an architect, contractor or interior designer - you have a lot to think about, and noise reduction might not be the number one thing on your list. Here at MPS, we can help take care of this important detail with you.
Sound masking is an important part of the functionality, comfort, and utility of any space. A properly installed sound masking system can greatly increase the value of your space, making it a more productive environment and showing your clients that you have thought of all the details for them.
In areas like offices, hospitals, waiting rooms and call centers, an appropriate noise masking system is mandatory. When you design and build your space, a high-quality sound reduction can dramatically change the way your space is perceived. A space that is too quiet or too noisy can be tough to work in. It can be more difficult and expensive to plan for acoustics after an area is designed and built. You can save yourself and everyone a lot of headaches when you add a noise-canceling system to your schematic ahead of time.
If you are worried about the added cost a sound reduction system will add to your building, you can read more about the investment required for a noise masking system. It's likely you didn't build your reputation on getting things done for the lowest price. Your attention to detail, knowledge, and ability to go beyond what is expected to create the perfect space is why you are the best at what you do. MPS would like to help implement the most effective sound masking system for your space so you can continue to raise the value of your work.
