STC- Sound Transmission Class

STC measures how much airborne sound passes through a material or a composite assembly. STC is calculated after analyzing the amount of Transmission Loss (TL) at individual frequencies measured in decibels (dB). For example, if the test result reported a TL of 30 @125 Hz, one can expect a 100 dB noise produced at 125 Hz to be reduced to 70 dB on the other side of the tested material.

STC is measured using the product itself, or in a wall or floor/ceiling assembly. Rather than testing the tile itself, to best replicate field conditions KNC tested QuietTile as it lays in standard 15/16" ceiling grid. Furthermore, it was tested without an existing deck. An Acoustical Consultant can calculate the overall STC rating for your deck/QuietTile composite or analyze the noise reduction from HVAC equipment installed in the plenum space between the deck and QuietTile.
