Our Dohm Classic will cover up to about 300-500 square feet, or one for about every four to six workstations. It is best used in an office environment for smaller noise control situations or to help individual employees with focus. However, two big things to keep in mind:
1. Open-offices or buildings with open, industrial-style ceilings will be more challenging spaces to mask sounds as there is simply more space to fill.
2. In a situation where you’re using a sound machine to block noise from a loud neighbor or officemate, the machine should be placed closer to you, and not the source of the sound. (When folks are loud talkers, they will naturally project louder when a sound is attempting to drown them out!)
Note: We do not recommend installing the Dohm on a wall, as this placement will disrupt the mechanics of the fan inside the unit. The Dohm should be placed upright on a flat surface like a desk, table, or non-carpeted floor.
