  Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control


FREE

Description

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...

  Sound Advice For Architectural Acoustics


$20

Description

Unwanted sound impacts and affects inhabitants of our created spaces, both physiologically and psychologically. If it not already, controlling noise will quickly become a mandated concern for designers.

Attesting to increasing regulatory focus on noise, is a recent proliferation of standards, guidelines, and codes regarding acoustics. Very soon, many of these guidelines will no longer be mere suggestions. Most acoustic concerns can be addressed with a basic understanding on how sound travels and is reflected, blocked, absorbed, or transmitted by materials and assemblies chosen in designing envelopes. 

Acoustic design is best addressed in an incremental fashion. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles regarding sound, how its energy moves through matter, how its path and intensity can...
