Glazing Strategies for Sound Control

Course Description: As noise pollution continues to become a growing health concern, strategies to control sound in both residential and non-residential building design have also increased in importance. This course examines the significance of sound control strategies and how they can improve the health and well-being of individuals by increasing comfort, workplace productivity, reducing stress, and allowing for proper rest. The acoustic attenuation properties of fenestration products are important factors to consider when designing new buildings or remodeling existing ones. Discussions on site-specific testing, STC and OITC ratings, and real-world examples will leave attendees with a better understanding of how a strong sound control strategy is important for the success of a project.

• Learn why a sound control strategy matters in project design.
• Learn basic sound properties, how they are measured, and basic principles for controlling unwanted noise.
• Explore glazing solutions that provide sound control.
