Government Sound Masking Installation Best Practices

Jan. 22, 2024 - In the intricate fabric of government facilities, where confidentiality and focus are paramount, achieving a consistent acoustic environment becomes a critical undertaking. Enter the world of sound masking, a pivotal solution that often goes unnoticed but plays a vital role in ensuring privacy, concentration, and overall well-being within government buildings. At Lencore, we understand the unique challenges faced by government entities and are here to act as a guide through the best practices of sound masking installation. If you’re embarking on the journey of setting up a new government facility or considering an upgrade, now is the opportune moment to delve into the world of sound masking and explore the myriad benefits it brings to a facility.

Best Practices for Government Building Sound Masking Installation

Strategic Speaker Placement

When it comes to sound masking in government buildings, the strategic placement of speakers is a pivotal factor in ensuring optimal performance and confidentiality. Lencore, drawing from a rich history of successful government installations, has identified five key areas where our sound masking solutions have delivered exceptional results.

Court rooms

Courtrooms demand the highest levels of confidentiality and focus. Lencore has successfully implemented sound masking solutions in courtrooms, mitigating the risk of conversations carrying beyond the designated spaces. Our strategic speaker placement ensures that legal proceedings remain confidential, contributing to the integrity of the justice system.

Social Security Offices

Government buildings housing Social Security Offices often host bustling spaces with a continuous influx of visitors. Lencore’s installations in waiting areas and consultation rooms have effectively masked ambient noise, providing a comfortable and private environment for discussions related to personal and sensitive matters.


In high-stakes environments like DPS offices, where sensitive discussions and classified information are commonplace, our strategic speaker placement has proven instrumental. By strategically integrating sound masking solutions into briefing rooms and private offices, Lencore ensures that confidential conversations remain private, contributing to the overall security and efficiency of DPS operations.

VA Hospitals

Within the healthcare landscape, particularly in VA hospitals, privacy is paramount. Lencore’s sound masking solutions have been strategically deployed in patient consultation rooms, administrative offices, and waiting areas to ensure that medical discussions and personal information remain confidential and protected.

Use Customized Sound Masking Solutions

In each of these scenarios, Lencore has consistently demonstrated its commitment to tailoring sound masking solutions to meet the specific needs of diverse government environments. By understanding the nuances of different spaces within government buildings, our strategic speaker placement ensures that the benefits of sound masking are realized to their fullest potential.

Our expertise goes beyond technology; it’s about crafting solutions that seamlessly integrate into the unique architecture and requirements of government spaces, enhancing confidentiality, focus, and overall operational efficiency.

Energy Efficient Sound Masking Solutions: A Green Approach to Acoustic Comfort

As the global focus on sustainability intensifies, government institutions are increasingly seeking eco-friendly solutions that not only enhance operational efficiency but also align with environmental consciousness. Sound masking, often recognized for its role in privacy and productivity, is also emerging as an energy-efficient alternative.

How Sound Masking Enhances Energy Efficiency:

Traditional methods of achieving acoustic privacy, such as increasing the volume of background music or employing physical barriers, can lead to higher energy consumption. Sound masking, on the other hand, operates by introducing a subtle ambient noise, allowing for the reduction of overall sound levels. This not only creates a more comfortable acoustic environment but also contributes to energy savings by mitigating the need for excessive HVAC system usage, especially in open-plan office spaces.

Lencore’s Commitment to Energy Efficiency:

Our dedication to sustainability extends to every facet of our product offerings. Our sound masking solutions are designed with energy efficiency in mind, ensuring a green approach to acoustic comfort. Here’s how:

Multi-zone Technology: Lencore’s localized zone control for sound masking, paging or audio ensures that sound masking is deployed only where and when needed. Our systems minimize unnecessary energy consumption, providing targeted acoustic comfort where it matters most.

Low Power Consumption: Lencore’s sound masking products are engineered to operate with low power consumption, contributing to overall energy efficiency. This not only reduces the environmental footprint of the system but also results in cost savings for government facilities over the long term.

Compliance with Green Building Standards: Lencore’s commitment to sustainability is further exemplified by our adherence to green building standards. Our sound masking solutions align with environmentally conscious building practices, earning us a reputation as a responsible and forward-thinking provider in the acoustic solutions industry.
