Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 10140-1 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 43, Acoustics, Subcommittee SC 2, Building

acoustics.

This first edition of ISO 10140-1, together with ISO 10140-2, ISO 10140-3, ISO 10140-4 and ISO 10140-5,

Annex A
(normative)
Walls — Airborne sound insulation
A.1 Application

For walls and other partitions, ISO 10140-2 applies. This annex applies 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
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.

---------------------- Page: 15 ----------------------
SIST EN ISO 10140-1:2010
ISO 10140-1:2010(E)

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 Application
This annex applies 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

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 the 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 Application
This annex applies 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

Figure 3 of ISO 10140-5:2010. 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 the 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.

Glazing — Airborne sound insulation
D.1 Application
This annex applies 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

the filler wall required to accommodate the test element.

The specific small-sized test opening described in ISO 10140-5:2010, Figure 3, fulfils these criteria, and a test

opening in accordance with ISO 10140-5:2010, 3.3.2, shall be used.

NOTE Details of the measurement conditions for glazing are prescribed in order to ensure the best possible

comparison between results obtained by different laboratories.
D.3 Boundary and mounting conditions

The glazing shall be installed into the test opening such that the niches on both sides of the pane have

different depths with a ratio of 2:1. A gap of about 10 mm shall remain between the pane and the reveal of the

test opening. This gap shall be filled with a type of putty, which shall be tested as described below. To fix the

glazing, two wooden beads (25 mm × 25 mm) shall be used (see Figure D.1). The space between the glazing

and the wooden beads shall be filled with putty about 5 mm thick. The beads shall cover not more than 15 mm

and not less than 12 mm of the glass .

The putty used for filling the 10 mm gap between the perimeter of the glazing and the reveal of the test

opening, and the 5 mm gap between the glazing and the wooden beads shall be qualified by the following test

method. A single soda-lime/sil
