Learning Objectives

1. Recognize the importance of proper acoustic control and its positive impact on the building’s occupants relative to health, speech privacy, security, and ability to learn.

2. Understand how to use key sound measurements in determining a successful acoustic plan with a focus on acoustic door and frame assemblies in environments like schools, offices, theaters, and medical buildings.

3. Describe the acoustic-door assembly and the importance of specifying the entire assembly from a manufacturer who offers test reports from an independent and certified lab.

4. Discuss the performance factors available in acoustic-door assemblies including level of sound control, fire rating, LEED contribution, ADA compliance, and security.

Interesting and good presentation. The test is slightly difficult without reference materials as the slides that are referenced are general, not specific to the question.

Full of great information critical for the beginning understanding of designing and specifying acoustic door assemblies.

Jeff

I found the information useful

angelo

High level of detailed explanation of issues. As someone who has always focused on these issues I actually picked up a few new points. But I’d encourage others to delve deeply into this subject area. What indicates a better rating in the bide below? A 1 or 5?

Philip

Thanks for the lesson in acoustics!

Andrei

good presentation

Amy

Interesting, I feel that the ratings could be ignored, and the principles taught with some path suggested for using the ratings or that the ratings should be taught in more than one video.

Dan

thanks

Jasmine

Great Job

Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control

FREE

Sound control is a critical element to a building’s design. How an occupant will use the space must be understood in order to deliver a healthy and functional environment free of noise. Is speech privacy important? Is this a learning environment? Does the office open to a manufacturing floor? We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation. But we must not overlook the importance of an acoustic-door assembly. Without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course will review healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. We’ll discuss the elements of the acoustic-door assembly and how the assembly addresses fire-ratings and ADA compliance, contributes to LEED certification and green building, and provides security for classified files and electronic data.
