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.

Attending this RIBA accredited webinar will award you with 1-hour's Continued Professional Development (CPD).

This CPD Covers:

  • The nature of sound – examining both airborne and structural transmission of sound
  • Regulatory requirements and British Standards the relate to acoustic performance
  • Test procedures and interpretation of test reports
  • Effective design of door assemblies for acoustic performance, including door construction and influence of sealing systems
  • Design conflicts between acoustic performance, durability and ease of operation of the door
  • Independent accreditation
