Page Count: 30
ICS Code (Acoustics in building. Sound insulation): 91.120.20
ICS Code (Walls. Partitions. Fa├žades): 91.060.10
scope:

This European Standard specifies information additional to EN ISO 10140-1 necessary to carry out efficiently and under standardized conditions the determination of the sound reduction index of drywall systems of plasterboard with steel studs according to EN ISO 10140-2 "Acoustics

- Laboratory measurement of sound insulation of -building elements

- Part 2: Measurement of airborne sound insulation". Observe that all demands in EN ISO 10140-2 should still be fulfilled. In order to decrease the uncertainty, it specifies:

- additional guidelines for testing drywall systems of plasterboard with steel studs;

and

- a method to validate laboratory by using two reference test partitions.

The results obtained are used to convert frequency-dependent sound reduction index into single number ratings, according to EN ISO 717-1. These performances can be used to compare different products, or, and to express a requirement, or, and as input into estimation methods, such as EN 12354-1.
