Learning Objectives

1. Understand common terminology and concepts as they relate to acoustics.

2. Understand principles for designing high performance acoustic assemblies as well as leave with some example combinations of materials for both walls and roofs designed specifically for acoustics.

3. Examine the acoustical benefits of stone wool versus other insulation materials in roofing and wall applications.

4. Discuss the acoustic codes and standards that are currently in place in the USA with specificity on occupant comfort in commercial buildings.

Informative - thanks

Erik Mar

great course. I would like to suggest that on the certificate, you specify 1 HSW credit, as it only says 1h. The State of NJ may question the credit and I would have to prove that it is an HSW by providing course description, which mean more paper work to submit to the state upon license renewal time


Always good to learn about other qualities of stonewall insulation.

Very Good Demonstrations

Rikki Frenkel

Very interesting and informative presentation. Good information to know.

Rick Ball

Clear presentation of complex subject material. Of particular interest: 1. History of acoustic rating, and how this rating system is evolving 2. How different wall assemblies can achieve different STC ratings, and how these ratings can be compromised by improper installation. - Diminishing return of adding width was also of interest. Audio videos were very effective.

Lucy Kelly

Great and informative course.

More Than Just an R-Value: Acoustics in Commercial Buildings


Commercial stone wool products can help to protect property, extend building life cycles and enhance occupant comfort, and are designed to make construction faster and easier. This course will identify what stone wool insulation is and how it is produced, and will discuss some introductory terminology and concepts as they relate to sound and acoustics in the building envelope. We will examine current codes and standards provisions for acoustics in the United States and finally, we will discuss techniques and considerations that can be used when designing exterior wall & roof assemblies and interior wall systems for sound acoustic performance.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 USGBC/GBCI + 1 AIBC Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU + 1 AANB, NSAA, ALBNL (EPP)
