American National Standard

Acoustical Performance Criteria, Design Requirements and Guidelines for Schools

A new American National Standard, developed by ANSI-Accredited Standards Committee S12, Noise, has just been published.

This standard provides acoustical performance criteria and design requirements for classrooms and other learning spaces. Anne included information on good design and construction practices, installation methods, and optional procedures to demonstrate conformance to the acoustical performance and design requirements of this standard. This standard seeks to provide design flexibility without compromising the goal of obtaining adequate speech intelligibility for all students and teachers in classrooms and learning spaces within the scope of this standard.
