The science of Sound

Understand the science of sound

Sound power is measured in decibels (dB) on a logarithmic scale which means that a 3dB reduction is actually a 50% decrease in sound power. A measure called Weighted Sound Reduction Index (Rw) has been developed to measure the effectiveness of noise reduction in different types of construction.

The higher the Rw value the more noise is absorbed and the quieter your home will be. An increase of one Rw unit is approximately equal to a reduction of one decibel of noise level. The diagram below shows the reductions that can be achieved using SoundScreen in a 90mm timber stud wall.
