Introduction
ISO 10140 (all parts) concerns laboratory measurement of the sound insulation of building elements
(see Table 1).
This part of ISO 10140 specifies the application rules for specific elements and products, including
specific requirements for preparation, mounting, operating and test conditions. ISO 10140-2 and
ISO 10140-3 contain the general procedures for airborne and impact sound insulation measurements,
respectively, and refer to ISO 10140-4 and ISO 10140-5 where appropriate. For elements and products
without a specific application rule described in this part of ISO 10140, it is possible to apply ISO 10140-2
and ISO 10140-3. ISO 10140-4 contains basic measurement techniques and processes. ISO 10140-5
contains the requirements for test facilities and equipment. For the structure of ISO 10140 (all parts),
see Table 1.
ISO 10140 (all parts) was created to improve the layout for laboratory measurements, ensure
consistency and simplify future changes and additions regarding mounting conditions of test elements
in laboratory and field measurements. It is intended for ISO 10140 (all parts) to present a well-written
and arranged format for laboratory measurements.
It is intended to update this part of ISO 10140 with application rules for other products. It is also
intended to incorporate ISO 140-18 into ISO 10140 (all parts).

Annex A
(normative)

Walls — Airborne sound insulation
A.1 General
For walls and other partitions, ISO 10140-2 is applicable. This annex is applicable to lightweight twin
leaf partitions, such as those constructed of gypsum boards.
The quantity determined is the sound reduction index, R, as a function of frequency. The definition of R
is given in ISO 10140-2.
The general guidelines in the relevant clauses of the basic ISO 10140-2 shall always be followed.
A.2 Test element
2
The test opening for walls should be approximately 10 m .
A.3 Boundary and mounting conditions
The sound reduction index of lightweight twin leaf partitions (e.g. twin leaf gypsum board walls) is
influenced by the mounting conditions in the test opening of the laboratory. Important installation
parameters include the niche depth and the position of the partition in relation to the acoustic break in
the test aperture.
Key

2 receiving room
3 acoustic break of the laboratory
Figure A.1 — Example of the position of the test element relative to the acoustic break of the

To improve the reproducibility between laboratories and facilitate comparison of sound reduction
indices for different lightweight double walls, the twin leaf partition shall not be mounted across the

acoustic break of the laboratory, but on the same side of the break, as indicated in Figure A.1. The
aperture should meet the requirements in ISO 10140-2.
Other mounting conditions may be used but shall be fully described in the test report.
NOTE 1 Mounting the lightweight partition with one leaf on one side and the other leaf on the other side of the
acoustic break can result in higher values for the sound reduction index.
NOTE 2 Other mounting conditions can be suitable for certain types of twin leaf walls, for example walls for
semi-detached houses where the leaves are vibrationally uncoupled (for example on separate foundations). In
such cases, the wall leaves can be mounted on each side of the acoustic break.
A.4 Test and operating conditions
The test and operating conditions are given in ISO 10140-2.
A.5 Test report
The test report is given in ISO 10140-2.

Annex B
(normative)

Doors — Airborne sound insulation
B.1 General
This annex is applicable to internal and external doors (including door sets).
The quantity determined is the sound reduction index, R, as a function of frequency. The definition of R
is given in ISO 10140-2.
The general guidelines in the relevant clauses of the basic ISO 10140-2 shall always be followed.
NOTE For a definition of door, see ISO 1804 and EN 12519.
B.2 Test element
2
For most doors, a test opening with an area of less than 10 m is needed. The area of the test element, S,
is the area of the opening in the filler wall required to accommodate the door.
B.3 Boundary and mounting conditions
The test opening for doors shall be arranged such that the lower edge is situated near to the level of
the floor of the test rooms and such that conditions in the building are reproduced. The door shall be
installed for test such that it can be opened and closed in a normal manner.
B.4 Test and operating conditions
The door shall be opened and closed at least five times immediately before testing.
B.5 Test report
The test report is given in ISO 10140-2.

Annex C
(normative)

Windows — Airborne sound insulation
C.1 General
This annex is applicable to windows.
The quantity determined is the sound reduction index, R, as a function of frequency. The definition of R
is given in ISO 10140-2.
The general guidelines in the relevant clauses of ISO 10140-2 shall always be followed.
NOTE For a definition of window (terminology), see EN 12519.
C.2 Test element
The preferred dimensions of the test opening for a window are 1 250 mm × 1 500 mm as for the specific
small-sized test opening described in ISO 10140-5, but variations from this size can be necessary in
recognition of national building practice. For windows, the test opening may be staggered as shown
in ISO 10140-5:2010, Figure 3. In the case of a window assembly, dimensions may be chosen as
representative of the assembly used in practical circumstances. For windows, the area, S, is the area of
the opening in the filler wall required to accommodate the test element.
C.3 Boundary and mounting conditions
The installation of a window assembly shall be as similar as possible to the method which would be used
in practice. When the window is mounted in the test opening, the niches on both sides of the windows
shall have different depths, preferably in a ratio of about 2:1, unless this conflicts with the particular
design of the window. However, it is expected that results obtained with niche depths of different ratios
would differ.
The gap between the window and the test opening (about 10 mm to 13 mm around the window when
mounted in the test opening) should be filled with absorbing material (for example mineral wool)
and made airtight using an elastic sealant on both sides or in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions.
If the test element is intended to be readily openable, it shall be installed for the test in such that a way
it can be opened and closed in a normal manner.
C.4 Test and operating conditions
C.4.1 Conditioning
The sound insulation of certain glazing systems or elements, especially those incorporating laminated
glass, can depend on the room temperature during the measurements. The temperature of both rooms
used for measuring the sound insulation should be (20 ± 3) °C. The test elements should be stored for
24 h at the test temperature. In addition, it can be advantageous to make measurements at temperatures
similar to those for which the test element is designed.

Annex D
(normative)

Glazing — Airborne sound insulation
D.1 General
This annex is applicable to glazing.
The quantity determined is the sound reduction index, R, as a function of frequency. The definition of R
is given in ISO 10140-2.
The general guidelines in the relevant clauses of ISO 10140-2 shall always be followed.
NOTE For a definition of glass (terminology), see EN 12758.
D.2 Test element
The dimensions of the test opening for glazing shall be 1 250 mm × 1 500 mm with an allowable
tolerance on each dimension of ±50 mm, preferably maintaining the same aspect ratio. For glazing,
the test opening shall be staggered on both sides and on the top by a distance of between 60 mm and
65 mm. The glazing shall be mounted in the smaller opening as shown in Figure D.1. For glazing, the
area, S, is the area of the opening in
