Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2006
Status: active
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Acoustic measurements and noise abatement in general): 17.140.01
scope:

This classification provides a single figure rating that can be used for comparing building systems and subsystems for speech privacy purposes. The rating is designed to correlate with transmitted speech intelligence between office spaces.

Excluded from the scope of this classification are applications involving female speakers or children,2 languages other than English, and sound spectra other than speech. Thus excluded, for example, would be comparisons of building systems or subsystems for their effectiveness in reducing transmitted noise from machinery, industrial processes, bowling alleys, music rooms, places of entertainment, and the like.

NOTE 1-Published work by Pearsons, et al, may eventually permit the restriction on female speakers to be relaxed.3

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

2 This is based on a similar exclusion in ANSI S3.5.-1969 which is no longer published.
