  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.

  Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Optimizing Healing Environments using IGU with Integrated Louvers


FREE

Description

Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include: • A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc. • A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows) to reduce glare and optimize thermal efficiencies. • A move toward improved air quality and away...
