Moving Designs determine dB ratings to aid acoustic partition choice

Moving Designs determine dB ratings to aid acoustic partition choice

When specifying an acoustic partition determining the dB rating is a key consideration for the soundproofing the product needs to achieve.

The below guide to acoustic levels leaves you well informed for determining the most suitable acoustic partition for your needs.

Sound levels:
20dB Rw – Normal speech readily audible
25dB Rw – Loud speech clearly audible
30dB Rw – Loud speech audible under normal conditions
35dB Rw – Loud speech audible but difficult to distinguish
40dB Rw – Loud speech faintly audible but cannot be distinguished
45dB Rw – Shouting audible but cannot be distinguished
50dB Rw – Shouting barely audible

It is important to remember that partitions are acoustically rated according to their performance in laboratory acoustic tests. When measured on site results will vary from one space to another.

For further advice on specifying the correct dB rating, please don't hesitate to contact one of Moving Designs' team.
