INCE-USA invites you to attend our first educational webinar, Building Acoustics: Sound Isolation, on Wednesday, July 27. This free webinar features INCE members Felicia Doggett from Metropolitan Acoustics and Ben Davenny from Acentech and is sponsored by National Gypsum.

Get a deeper dive into:

  • Design Guidance for various types of insulation, insulation class, wall materials, and the construction from floor to ceiling.
  • Background Noise, masking other sounds from within your building and increasing perceived privacy and how it can be used to your advantage.
  • Dispelling Sound Isolation Myths such as:
    • Wood studs are good for sound isolation
    • Putting curtains on windows will decrease the sound coming through
    • Carpeting will solve all your impact noise problems
    • Putting acoustic panels on walls can increase sound isolation
    • and many more!

This will be a 45-minute presentation with a 15-minute Q&A to close.

Registration will open soon — so please check back.
