For this ELEMENTS COMMON TO ALL STUDIOS 19 Figure 2-4 Some of the ways to weatherstrip doors to reduce sound leaks: (A) foam or felt strips, (B) magnetic seals such as used on refrigerator doors, (C) wiping rubber seal, and (D) automatic drop seal. reason noise criteria (NC) curves have been proposed for adoption as standards. Figure 2-5 illustrates a family of such curves. The downward slope of these curves reflects both the ear’s increasing sensitivity with increasing frequency and the spectral shape of common noises decreasing with increasing frequency.

One straightforward and relatively inexpensive approach is to mount panels of Tectum (see Tectum and Gold Bond Products, Appendix D), a structural board of wood fiber with a cement binder. It stands up well under abuse and can be painted with a nonbridging paint ELEMENTS COMMON TO ALL STUDIOS 15 Figure 2-1 Suggestions for the acoustical treatment of the sound lock corridor.
