Learning Center

Welcome to the PABCO Gypsum Learning Center. 
Available courses listed below.

The course will cover the following topics:
Sound & Humans - Why understanding sound-related phenomena is important to humans and the building industry.

Sound Fundamentals - An introduction to the fundamentals of how sound works and why you should care.

Noise in Buildings - Learn how the properties of sound react within buildings and its perception to occupants, and resulting consequences.

Noise Treatment - Gain an understanding of new ways of treating sound transmission in buildings and employing the right methods for your situation.

This course will focus on the challenges associated with designing sound isolating partitions using steel framing. 

  • The various sounds and noises in life that impact the health and welfare of humans
  • Review of sound transmission class ratings to better determine acceptable levels of noise and examine common techniques used to isolate noise
  • Detail various options for designing partitions, why those details matter in achieving desired results and how to communicate those options clearly in the designs
  • Benefits of incorporating constrained layer damped gypsum panels to enhance performance
  • Flanking and simple design driven mitigation techniques

This course is for contractors who are looking to achieve sound control cost effectively. It will include a discussion about QuietRock® and the benefits contractors will enjoy by using the products to achieve the desired acoustic results.

We are going to build a Sound Control Toolbox, empowering architects to design practical, value driven solutions with proven results:
  • Basic Tools: You will learn the terms, definitions and acronyms used in building acoustics
  • Specialty Tools: You will have a better understanding on how to read an acoustic report.  You will go beyond the results and find the hidden details that can make or break a design
  • Power Tools: We will demonstrate through acoustic testing how each component of a wall will affect performance.  You will come away with simple, effective rules for choosing the right components to meet your acoustic objectives
  • Drafting Tools: You will move from the theoretical topics to applying this knowledge by effectively communicating it in your project plans
