Roadworx Sound Masking

Sound Masking offers an innovative, simple and intelligently designed solution to the problem of speech privacy by reducing distractions and increasing productivity. Ambient noise distractions exist in numerous industries and working situations, either due to excessive noise or environments that are too quiet. Both conditions can result in unproductive workplaces.

How It Works

As crazy as it sounds, adding sound to a space actually makes the space seem quieter.

This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech. Sound Masking works by emitting a
soft, inconspicuous background sound with the use of a loudspeaker system.

This effectively masks unwanted noise, makes speech unintelligible and makes the environment acoustically
comfortable. The ambient sound level becomes more uniform, and otherwise noisy distractions are muffled.

This helps to keep your private meetings private, improve focus, decrease workplace distractions and increase productivity.

The Benefits

Productivity Gains

Independent studies show a 5-10% increase in productivity with properly implemented adaptive sound masking, making undesirable conversations and other noise distractions less audible. The result: employees are less distracted, they are able to concentrate better, and their productivity rises measurably!


Adaptive Sound Masking technology is a unique feature, automatically adjusting the noise level to provide continuous comfort levels for inhabitants of the space. Background noise is increased during very active periods, and is more discreet when the area is quieter.


Closing the door to an office no longer guarantees speech privacy. Sound Masking can help by making voices unintelligible outside of, and between meeting spaces, creating a completely confidential workplace.

Cost Savings

Sound masking is one of the most cost-effective ways a business can reduce unwanted distractions and increase speech privacy. Sound masking in a workplace provides a significant return-on-investment through increased employee productivity while also providing cost savings in fit-out construction

Who Needs Sound Masking?

Reducing the Sphere of Influence

Sound masking raises the acoustic comfort level by reducing the sphere of influence.

In a standard open office environment without sound masking the sphere of influence in which conversations are a distraction is up to 12m. Sound masking can reduce this sphere of influence to just 5m.

This drastically reduces the distraction and raise productivity by a measurable amount (independent studies point increase of 5-20% in productivity gains).
