Tech Note 360: Acoustic Insulation and Sound Transmission in Cold-Formed Steel Construction


Summary: Cold-formed steel has been widely used in commercial buildings, especially in non-load bearing (partitions) and curtain wall applications, and is increasingly used as primary structural members, such as beams and columns, or as load-bearing walls or partitions in commercial and residential construction. The acoustic performance of floors and walls is an important consideration for many buildings.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
