The typical office space can be a noisy and distracting environment to work in on a daily basis.

The Skinny: The latest product release from the Pacific, Mo.-based electronics company Lowell Manufacturing provides electronics professionals with the ability to minimize those noisy distractions that affect the efficiency of an office.

The Specs: Lowell’s new SM810, SM820 and SM410 sound masking speakers are UL rated products that Lowell says enable office spaces to add room noise ambiance to office environments to help minimize those productivity killing distractions. The SM810 incorporates an 8-inch dual cone design rated at 15 watts. The SM820 is an 8-inch 50-watt coaxial design and the SM410 features a 4-inch 15-watt single cone, along with a 4-watt 70-volt transformer. Lowell says the speakers also include factory mounted hangers and options for bridge rails. The speakers’ enclosures are acoustically lined with fiberglass and the exteriors are available in a choice of black or white. Lowell adds the speakers also feature dual combination knockouts for flex conduit and a Romex connector that aid electronics professionals during the installation process.

Solutions: The speakers can be employed in office, hospitality, education and other environments that require additional room ambiance.
