    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 04.06, 2015 Specifies design details that should be considered in the design of buildings that include operable partitions.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This guide provides design details that should be considered in the design of buildings that include operable partitions. Operable partitions are those that can be quickly put in place or removed and stored to provide flexibility in the size of spaces typically used for meetings or social functions.

    1.1.1 The guide primarily discusses details in the building design required to limit leakage of sound around an operable partition.

    1.1.2 The guide also discusses some factors that affect the performance of the partitions themselves.

    1.1.3 This guide is neither a specification for operable partitions nor a document intended to be imposed as a requirement on manufacturers of operable partitions.

    1.2 Excluded from this guide are those partitions that are classified by the building products industry as demountable. Demountable partitions are those that are designed and installed with the intent of later being taken down and re-erected by a crew over a period of time, with the components being reusable.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
