Practical Approaches for Accoustic Construction
Doors to these rooms could be either good quality solid core
dows to interior spaces (corridors and lobbies), with 2
wood or packed metal doors with acoustical seals or spe-
to 3 inches between panes. Line the space between panes
cially manufactured sound control doors. Double glaze win-
at jamb, sill and head with an inch of fiberglass.
Table 5-3 Recommended Ceiling Treatment
This table shows recommended ceiling treatments for different room types, depending on type of roof
construction. It indicates the most cost effective combination; other ceilings are possible if they meet cri-
teria discussed in the text.
Ordinary acoustic tile suspended (also provides acoustic absorption).
Ordinary acoustic tile suspended, under resiliently hung gypsum wall board ceiling.
Absorbent panels (fiberglass, etc.) - (provides no isolation).
Absorbent panels under resiliently hung gypsum wall board ceiling.
STC rated acoustic tile (35-44 STC) (provides absorption and isolation).
STC rated acoustic tile (35-44 STC), plus gypsum wall board ceiling.
7. Absorbent panels below gypsum wall board ceiling.
N.R. not recommended
*This assumes the roof of the Main Rehearsal Room is not continuous with the roofs of other music spaces. If
otherwise, higher quality constructions are required.
