Digital Acoustic Lab
Real-Time Acoustic Reporting
For architects, building owners, and other stakeholders, the acoustic performance of new building projects are coming under increasing scrutiny. Environmental noise pollution and the rise of urban dwellings have raised concerns for occupant health and comfort. Due to circumstantial environmental factors, acoustic performance can be difficult to understand and plan for early in the design process. Acoustic reports can be difficult to understand, and most are based on a single set of data – excluding factors that arise when applied to a specific project. The Digital Acoustic Lab (DAL) now offers the first, real-time acoustic reporting software allowing you to create and test custom, project-specific configurations. Results are calculated according to user-defined configurations, not extrapolated from existing data. This means you can create and test configurations based exactly on your project specifications – from room size and window position to product type and glass thickness. DAL also allows you to listen – to hear the acoustic performance with real audio. You can choose from the dropdown menu of environmental sound sources and listen to the live sound attenuation as you open and close your configuration. DAL even supports user-defined noise recordings.
