Sound control and acoustical privacy are important in almost all building projects. The International Building Code mandates Sound Transmission Class (STC) of 50 for walls and Insulation Impact Class (IIC) of 50 for floors in multi-family residential apartments, condominiums, student housing, assisted living, affordable housing, military housing and workforce housing. Reduced Sound Transmission is also required in medical offices to comply with HIPPA Laws, as well as for Home Entertainment Systems and many other applications. Tague Lumber carries many sound control products, including top lines of soundproofing drywall, manufactured to exacting standards using innovative soundproofing technologies.
