Sound Masking Systems
State Systems, Inc. understands offices were meant to have a comfortable level of silence to contribute to a productive and efficient working environment. Employees have hundreds of noise distractions throughout the day−from ringing phones, email notification alerts, text messages, co-worker office discussions and dozens of other disruptions.
Employees usually try to take matters into their own hands to eliminate background noises, often by wearing headphones (to drown out noisy distractions with background music) or bringing in their own noise machine (including fans, heaters and water displays).
Office distractions can negatively affect work environments by creating more pressure and stress on employees. This could have a negative impact on morale — resulting in less productivity, a higher absentee rate and dissatisfied workers.

Benefits of Sound Masking
Increase Productivity, Decrease Errors & Save on Construction
Sound masking comes from the physics principle that says when soft natural or artificial background noise is added to a room, the conversations and noises in the room are less understood. The soft sound that is introduced masks distracting and disruptive office-related noises. Why install a sound masking system in a workplace or commercial setting? A study by the Data Management Association found that open-plan workplaces that lack sound masking systems witness a 40 percent loss in productivity and a 27 percent increase in errors, especially in data entry tasks.
Employees can save money on new construction projects by installing a sound masking system. Work areas that feature sound masking systems require:
- Less insulation
- Fewer interior walls
- Less expensive ceiling tile
- Lower partitions
Installing a sound masking system in a workplace offers a tremendous return on investment due to the resulting:
- Increase in worker productivity
- Reduction in errors
- Savings opportunity on construction projects
A sound masking system is generally used in commercial offices, to also include hospitals, banks, libraries, courthouses and call centers throughout the Mid-South area.
Sound Masking & White Noise System Installation
White noise is a sound containing a blend of all the audible frequencies distributed equally over the range of the frequency band. State Systems, Inc. provides the latest and most efficient sound masking systems to reduce background office noises. Our office white noise systems are non-distracting and unnoticeable. With a neutral sound, they can improve concentration, further increasing worker production and focus.
Sound masking office systems work by adding background (or “white”) noise to an environment to “mask” other noises. These systems fill the silence with unstructured sound in an effort to provide undetectable sounds that drown out potential distractions.
State Systems, Inc. provides installation and design services on two different types of office sound masking systems:
Personal Sound Masking Systems
Personal sound masking systems provide business-grade privacy for an individual work area. The personal systems focus on a specific area, while also masking other distractions. The individual office white noise systems don’t require personalized training to install.
Open-Office Sound Masking Systems
Open-office sound masking systems allow for sound masking for a centralized, open-space work environment with multiple offices or cubicles. This setting offers a more uniform and comfortable level of white noise management.
