Building acoustics is the art of controlling noise within a building. If 'sound' is the pleasurable experience to be gained from music and the spoken word, then 'noise' is the undesirable sound that can at best reduce a persons comfort, concentration and efficiency, and at worst cause stress and physical discomfort.
Is a method of controlling noise passing from one port of a structure to another. Airborne sound can pass directly through a dividing element, for example a partition, door or access panel, or indirectly around the surrounding structure, known as flanking sound transmission.
No specifc acoustic regulations exist to cover access panels, therefore the data below taken from BB93 offers a guide to performance based on 'doorsets'.

AC Sound Insulation type
Most of Profab's standard range of access panels is available upgraded for enhanced acoustic performance. Upgraded panels are designated by AC followed by the series number.
Sound absorption refers to the sound energy that can be absorbed by different materials within a space. Once a sound is produced the time taken for the 'echo' to disappear can be measured. This is known as reverberation time. Correct sound absorption levels are important for speech clarity, especially for pupils in an education environment.
Profab manufacture a range of access panels to suit sound absorbent ceilings, such as Rigitone® or Gyptone® from British Gypsum
Additionally, we offer a bespoke design service for wall mounted sound absorbent panels. A vast number of bespoke design ptions are available regarding shape, size and perforation patterns.
