Green Design

Lencore products are manufactured in the U.S. with high levels of recycled content and within strict environmental guidelines. The products are manufactured with over 50% recycled aluminum (100% post consumer content). The plastic content used is ABS (recycled).

Our systems enable users to add paging and music to their masking system by simply adding amplifiers or Lencore’s Music Page Interface (MPI). This reduces additional components and costs. The unique features of the system enable the same speakers that produce masking within the space to distribute superior quality paging and music. Paging capabilities include all call, zone, and life safety paging.

The system's on-going energy costs are negligible requiring only 100 watt to mask 36,000 sq. ft.

Lencore systems are custom designed to fit a variety of site conditions and applications and used in open and closed plan offices with or without ceiling tiles. Lencore systems are applicable for new construction, retrofits, and designed to meet local codes requiring no on-going maintenance or service contracts. The systems have a 20+ year life expectancy.

The system has tuning capabilities of +/- 1/2 dB and features independent and central volume control as well as a 24/7 Programmable Timer. Our products are UL listed for use in air-handling spaces. The temporal and spatial uniformity of sound masking is unmatched in the industry and proven to meet ASTM E-1130, ASTM E1573, ASTM E1374, and ASTM E1041.

Lencore systems are designed in such a way that an individual speaker or component failure will have no impact on the balance of the system.

The Lencore systems are digitally engineered to provide an unobtrusive and comfortable sound. The pleasant and uniform introduction of sound masking into office spaces contributes positively to the overall environment. When office noise is reduced, worker satisfaction increases and stress levels are reduced. *1
