Acoustical control is a critical factor in virtually every type of environment; therefore selection of the appropriate operable partition is critical. It is important when choosing an operable wall system to not only consider the space /configuration of your application and how the wall operates, but to also examine the wall’s acoustical performance. Join us in this one-hour course as we discuss the right wall system, in conjunction with complementing architectural elements, to help produce excellent acoustical control.
- Identify the ways acoustics can be measured and how high acoustic levels can effect the physical, mental, and social health of occupants
- Illustrate how operable partitions can be used to reduce sound transmission and create multiple configurations that are quiet and effective for a variety of users
- Analyze field sound tests used to ensure materials and products comply with standards and guidelines for safe acoustical levels in various applications
- Discuss how operable partitions can help projects apply for LEED category credits that guide design professionals in creating spaces that allow occupants to live and work in peace
