More and more lawsuits are being filed against builders due to sound transmissions or STC ratings in hotel construction and doctor’s offices. Most are due to the subcontractor not installing the correct sound insulation in walls, metal stud framing centers, or sound board to achieve the correct STC rating. These lawsuits could easily be prevented if the owners or contractors had the correct data available to achieve higher STC ratings thru partitions. Note not all sound insulation can achieve certain high STC ratings and other alternatives may need to be put in place to achieve these ratings. Let us help select the right insulation or alternative for your next building project.
