The purpose of sound masking hallways, waiting rooms and open areas outside of conference rooms and enclosed offices, is to ensure the confidentiality of conversations from within those areas. It prevents people at water coolers, in the hallways or in the common areas from overhearing potentially sensitive information through the open doorways or closed doors of nearby offices.

Along with this, private offices and other enclosed spaces, might provide visual privacy but do a poor job of providing actual privacy.  You may be able to literally hear through your walls because they are made of a lightweight material or extend only to the ceiling tiles and not all the way to the ceiling deck. If your office is built like this, you have experienced overhearing other peoples conversations and find yourself distracted by noise beyond your walls.  Our commercial sound masking system can provide the privacy that you need.
