White Paper Reveals the Acoustical Benefits of Raised Floors

March 3, 2004
Tate, the leader in raised-access floors, and Dynasound, the leader in soundmasking solutions, have collaborated to create a white paper on acoustical issues and raised flooring.The document focuses on the significant owner benefits of locating soundmasking under the raised-access floor system. Among these benefits are: the highest performance location for soundmasking and at the same time the lowest installed costs.

The paper also provides significant laboratory test information on a wide range of issues to show the superior acoustical performance characteristics for raised floors. The report includes the sound transmission between private offices, acoustical impacts of raised floor air distribution, and foot-fall noise on raised floors.Acoustical test results from actual installations of soundmasking under raised floor systems provide overwhelming proof that the concept provides exceptional performance in open and closed plan offices.A special section of the paper addresses the major advantages that computer acoustical programming can have to a project when it is in the planning stage. Computer modeling can accurately predict the level of speech privacy for any project while it is in the early planning stages, and value engineer individual components, thus saving costly corrections after occupancy.
