AbstractThis digest points out the importance of providing an adequate transmission loss through the body of a landscaped screen so that its performance will not be degraded. The variation in speech privacy as the screen dimensions and position are varied is used to emphasize other important parameters. The extreme importance of ceiling reflectivity is also briefly examined.
