4 Key Goals of Acoustic Standards and Guidelines
Even a quick look at acoustics sections in building standards or guidelines can leave anyone aside from acousticians scratching their heads. To help simplify the subject, Rockfon Acoustic Specialist Gary Madaras distilled this information into an article for The Trowel.
Knowing the four key goals of acoustic requirements and the metrics used to check compliance with each can help design and construction professionals navigate the acoustic requirements in today’s standards and guidelines.
- Prevent excessive reverberation and loudness inside occupied spaces.
- Limit occupant noise transmission between interior rooms.
- Limit exterior environmental noise transmission into the building.
- Limit noise levels generated by building mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems inside occupied rooms.
Understanding these four key goals will help achieve an effective, no-compromise approach that complies with the industry’s latest standards and achieves an optimal acoustic experience at a competitive price.
