TSE Acoustic Test Laboratory
Double Reverberation Chamber Acoustic Test Laboratory was constructed on the first floor of TSE (Turkish Standards Institution) Energy Technologies Laboratories building which allows acoustic tests to be done for several air conditioning system products. The laboratory has an original design which was formed with domestic knowledge. Low background noise level needs in the chambers and high noise levels in the facility brought forth the need for high sound transmission loss levels for the design of the laboratory. Rigidur® H was the most suitable material to satisfy density and elasticity module parameters, hence used for the wall partitions and ceilings of inner rooms and outer shell of the laboratory. A wall system recommended by Rigips was constructed as the outer shell and a steel panel system designed by Pro-Plan® was used at inner rooms. It has been tested and proved that sound power levels can be measured reliably in the laboratory which is internationally accredited.
