Course Description: AEC Daily: Acoustic Door Assemblies and Their Role in Sound Control
ONGOING - FREE
Sound control is a critical element in a building’s design. We all think of the walls, ceiling, and floor when discussing sound attenuation, but without the proper acoustic door, the sound-control goals in an acoustic plan may not be met. This course reviews healthy sound levels and how to test and identify target STC ratings. Also discussed are the elements of acoustic door assemblies and how they address fire ratings and ADA compliance, contribute to LEED® certification and green building, and provide security for classified files and electronic data.
ONGOING - FREE
Recognize the importance of proper acoustic control relative to health, speech privacy, security, and the ability to learn.
Explain how to use key sound measurements in determining a successful acoustic plan, with a focus on acoustic door and frame assemblies, in environments such as schools, offices, theaters, and medical buildings.
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.
Discuss the performance options available in acoustic door assemblies, including level of sound control, fire rating, LEED contribution, ADA compliance, and security.
