About this course

Effective acoustic containment helps to improve the quality of the built environment, preserving privacy as well as excluding unwanted noise. Both a duty of care and regulations (including the recent revision of Approved Document E to the Building Regulations for England & Wales) mean it is essential to be informed of the relevant requirements, and the implications for door assemblies.

The CPD seminar covers:

The nature of sound - examining both airborne and structural transmission of sound

Regulatory requirements and British Standards that relate to acoustic performance

Test procedures and interpretation of test reports

Effective design of door assemblies for acoustic performance, including door construction and the influence of sealing systems

Design conflicts between acoustic performance, durability and ease of operation of the door

Independent accreditation

KEYWORDS: sound, insulation, acoustic, door, design, doors
