ABOUT THIS GUIDE.
The purpose of this guide is to provide information on thetechnical benefits obtained with the inclusion of acousticinsulation materials in the construction of all types of buildingsas well as noise control of machinery.The range of Bradford products and their applicationsis presented along with data and worked examples toillustrate design considerations.This Acoustic Design Guide also outlines the basicproperties of sound, and methods for its control. It does notset out to provide a definitive solution to every conceivablenoise problem. Rather, it aims to explain the principlesinvolved, so that these principles can be applied along withcommon sense, to overcome common acoustic problems.Acoustics is however a complex science, and there willbe many instances where the services of specialist acousticconsultants or noise control engineers are indispensable.The reader is cautioned against investing large sums of money in noise control without first seeking advice.This is particularly pertinent where compliance withnoise abatement orders is concerned.
