The right sound masking system can turn an unproductive and distracting office
space into a more efficient and "quiet" environment. By gently raising
the background sound level, the Lencore Spectra Sound Masking system "masks"
extraneous conversations from nearby workstations and creates office environments
that provide speech privacy, reduce stress, and increase productivity. Installed
in the plenum, the system can be customized to areas as small as 225 square
feet; maintenance-free, it comes with a 20+-year life expectancy. Low-voltage
system is energy efficient and cost effective to operate. Lencore Spectra Sound
