Standard Test Method for Measuring the Interzone Attenuation of Furniture Panels Used as Acoustical Barriers
|Publication Date:||27 July 1990|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the interzone attenuation of furniture panels used as acoustical barriers in open-plan spaces to provide speech privacy or sound isolation between working positions.
1.2 This test procedure was originally developed using the foot-pound system of units for prescribing measurement positions and distances. However, the use of SI units is preferred by ASTM. For this reason, dimensions are provided in SI units, with approximate foot-pound conversions indicated.
1.2.1 Unless otherwise qualified, all dimensions specified in this test method shall be understood to have a tolerance of ± 25 mm (± 1 in.), even though the indicated approximate conversions of the numerical dimensions given will not always be accurate to this extent. All measurements shall be made in SI units or the corresponding exact foot-pound units.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
