Project Scope
Architectural Testing, Inc., a subsidiary of Intertek (Intertek-ATI), was contracted to conduct
airborne sound transmission loss and impact sound transmission tests. The complete test data is
included as attachments to this report. The client provided the test specimen. The specimen was
constructed on the date of testing.
Test Methods
The acoustical tests were conducted in accordance with the following standards. The equipment
listed in the attachments meets the requirements of the following standards.
ASTM E 90-09, Standard Test Method for Laboratory Measurement of Airborne Sound
Transmission Loss of Building Partitions
ASTM E 413-10, Classification for Rating Sound Insulation
ASTM E 492-09, Standard Test Method for Laboratory Measurement of Impact Sound
Transmission Through Floor-Ceiling Assemblies Using the Tapping Machine
ASTM E 989-06 (2012), Classification for Determination of Impact Insulation Class (IIC)
ASTM E 2235-04 (2012) Standard Test Method for Determination of Decay Rates for Use in
Sound Insulation Test Methods
Test Procedure
All testing was conducted in the VT test chambers at Intertek-ATI located in York,
Pennsylvania. The microphones were calibrated before conducting the tests.
The airborne transmission loss test was conducted in accordance with the ASTM E 90 test
method using the single direction method. Two background noise sound pressure level and five
sound absorption measurements were conducted at each of five microphone positions. Four
sound pressure level measurements were made simultaneously in both rooms, at each of five
microphone positions.

Test Procedure (Continued)
The impact sound transmission test was conducted in accordance with the ASTM E 492 test
method. Two background noise sound pressure level, two sound pressure level measurements
with the tapping machine operating at each position specified by ASTM E 492, and five sound
absorption measurements were conducted at each of five microphone positions.
The air temperature and relative humidity conditions were monitored and recorded during all
measurements.
