AbstractA simple, economical technique is discussed to improve the noise reduction between adjacent offices where the dominant sound transmission path is through the suspended ceiling and the common plenum above the ceiling. A series of laboratory measurements has been made to determine the important physical parameters associated with using a stack of absorptive batts as a sound barrier. These are compared with measurements made of an installation in a commercial office building. Further studies are required to evaluate the effect on air quality.
