Product Data Sheet QuietZone Acoustic Batts QuietZone acoustic batts (15" or 23" width) will be required in the cavity space between wall framing sections spaced either 16" or 24" o.c. Owens Corning QuietZone acoustic batts will be required to fill the cavity space between wall framing sections spaced either 16" or 24" o.c. when using 2x6 QuietZone acoustic wall framing. Product Applications QuietZone Quiet Foundations Noise Control System Using single 2x4 wood studs (16" o.c.), QuietZone acoustic batts, and " Type X gypsum board provides basic noise control between adjoining rooms. QuietZone acoustic batts can improve conventional wood stud walls to a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating of 39. QuietZone Quiet Retreats Studs, Batts, Caulk and Mat Using QuietZone acoustic framing on 24" centers, 2x6 QuietZone acoustic wall studs, double layers 5 8 " Type X gypsum drywall each side, 5 QuietZone acoustic batts. In this assembly wall performance improves to an STC rating of 63. Technical Design Considerations Acoustical performance of interior drywall partitions can be substantially improved by including a number of important design and construction details. Important details include sealing the perimeter of walls, wall inter- section construction details, and the location and proper installa- tion of electrical outlets, ducts, doors and mechanical equipment. Perimeter Sealing Seal walls on both sides at top and bottom plates with a non-hardening, permanently resilient caulking such as a butyl rubber-base compound. Where required, two layers of wallboard, properly staggered, joint compound and tape will effectively seal corners. Doors Where optimum acoustical control is desired, solid wood core doors or insulated metal doors should be specified. Door tops and sides should be gasketed with a soft weather stripping. Use of threshold closures at the bottom of the door or air seals will reduce sound transmission. Technical Data Wood Frame Construction Width Length Thickness Pieces Per Package Sq.
