CSC Luncheon – STC and Steel Framing: Dispelling Myths and Forging Innovative Designs

Presented by Ben Shafer, Acoustic Systems Specialist for PABCP Gypsum, this CSC Vancouver Chapter Luncheon will provide a comprehensive overview of designing acoustically-related interior partitions for a variety of steel stud configurations, including partitions with structural requirements. Ben will address the differences between the ASTM E90-09 lab tests typically performed on 25 gauge steel and the real world sound isolation performance of interior partitions that have structural components such as cross bracing, channel stiffeners, blocking and door frames. He will also introduce and explain new sound isolation measurements and standards related to SPC (Speech Privacy Class) and ASTC (Apparent Sound Transmission Class).
