Spectra® Sound Masking

The purpose of sound masking is to achieve both Speech Privacy and Comfort. Sound Masking introduces a spectrum of noise which gently raises the ambient background sound in order to cover, or mask, speech. Speech Privacy is achieved by raising the noise level to a point that makes conversations unintelligible. Comfort is achieved through the quality and range of the sound produced.

Every space is unique. But, when it comes to sound masking, Lencore is able to help put some guidelines around what systems may be best for your facility’s individual needs.

From single, desktop units to a couple hundred square feet to a few million square feet spread out globally, Lencore has a solution that meets your objectives for speech privacy, comfort and communication. To keep it simple, break down the spaces into two general areas:


Spectra Classic is the most economical, “set it and forget it” system up to 20,000 square feet. This self-contained system provides superior sound quality - giving you comfort and speech privacy.
