Specifying acoustic products: Tips for specifiers

  1. Be aware that sound, like water, will find the weakest point through. Therefore, voids in ceilings and ducts need to be addressed.
  2. Understand the needs of the space. Is it going to be a space for collaboration and communication, or a space for concentration or even creativity?
  3. Understand that sound travels through any medium, not just air. Structure- borne sound needs to be addressed separately to airborne sound.
  4. Good sound attenuation relies on density and airtightness.
  5. Consider allowing background sound into meeting rooms to provide masking and privacy for room-to-room attenuation.
  6. Sound absorption needs to be considered alongside sound insulation.
  7. Employ a competent professional acoustic consultant. Your Decor Systems consultant will be delighted to assist you with this.
