The new need for tranquillity

With the recent lockdowns bringing about a new way of living, the nation is spending more time than ever at home. Houses have become offices, schools, and sanctuaries, all of which function at their best in a calm, tranquil environment. But a noise-free background, conducive to work or quality downtime, is far from possible when a washing machine has a lengthy wash programme ending in an 80-decibel spin cycle as loud as busy city traffic.

Noise can drown out your wellbeing

Studies show that background noise adversely impacts on stress levels, mood and concentration, ultimately damaging work output by up to 66%. In fact, World Health Organisation research shows that environmental noise affects mental and physical health to such a degree that it is now second only to air pollution in terms of being detrimental to health.
