We are delighted by the Scottish Government decision to allow background audio to be reintroduced in hospitality settings

KSG Acoustics has carried out a vital study into the relationship between background audio and verbal communication in hospitality settings.   The results of the study clearly demonstrate that background audio can be safely reintroduced into hospitality settings during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Our thanks go out to the Scottish Government for working in partnership with us, UKAN for their support, some of Glasgow's finest establishments: Bier Halle, Chinaskis, Club Tropicana, SWG3,  The Admiral, The Garage, The Spiritualist, and Thundercat, and all of the staff and volunteers who gave their time. 

For more information about the study or for help with setting your background audio levels, please feel free to contact us. 

The study and results can be downloaded here...
