Akustik - Leitfaden für den Schallschutz in Büros und Arbeitsräumen durch Schallschirme (ISO 17624:2004)

Diese Internationale Norm behandelt die Wirksamkeit von Schallschirmen. Sie legt die schalltechnischen und
betriebstechnischen Anforderungen fest, die zwischen dem Hersteller oder Lieferanten und dem Nutzer von
Schallschirmen zu vereinbaren sind. Diese Internationale Norm ist auf die folgenden Arten von Schallschirmen
anwendbar:
a) freistehende Schallschirme für Büros, Dienstleistungsbereiche, Ausstellungsflächen und ähnliche Bereiche;
b) Schallschirme, die in die Möblierung solcher Räume integriert sind;
c) tragbare und versetzbare Schallschirme für Werkstatträume;
d) fest eingebaute Raumteiler, bei denen mehr als 10 % der an Nachbarbereiche angrenzenden Flächen offen
und nicht schalltechnisch behandelt sind.
Wände von Teilkapseln und Teilkabinen, die zusammen mit den Raumbegrenzungsflächen ebenfalls zu einer
Aufteilung des Raums führen und bei denen mehr als 10 % offen und nicht schalltechnisch behandelt sind, werden
ebenfalls als Schallschirme betrachtet.
ANMERKUNG Hinweise zu vollständigen Schallschutzkapseln sind in ISO 15667 enthalten.
Diese Internationalen Norm gilt nicht für Schrankwände und ähnliche mehrschichtig aufgebauten Wände, deren
Dicke 0,2 m überschreitet, ebenso wenig wie für Tücher und andere Arten von abgehängten Blenden.

Acoustique - Lignes directrices pour la réduction du bruit dans les bureaux et locaux de travail au moyen d'écrans acoustiques (ISO 17624:2004)

L'ISO 17624:2004 traite de l'efficacité des écrans acoustiques. Elle spécifie les exigences acoustiques et fonctionnelles sur lesquelles le fournisseur ou le fabricant des écrans acoustiques et l'utilisateur doivent se mettre d'accord.
L'ISO 17624:2004 est applicable aux types suivants d'écrans acoustiques: écrans acoustiques isolés pour les bureaux, les aires de service, les aires d'exposition et les salles du même genre; écrans acoustiques intégrés dans le mobilier de ces salles; écrans acoustiques portatifs et amovibles pour locaux de travail; cloisons fixes dans les salles comportant plus de 10 % de la surface de liaison ouverte et sans traitement acoustique.
Sont également traitées comme des écrans acoustiques les parois des enceintes et cabines acoustiques partielles qui, en conjonction avec les parois d'enveloppe d'une salle, en assurent également son cloisonnement et qui constituent une surface ouverte sans traitement acoustique représentant plus de 10 %.
L'ISO 17624:2004 ne s'applique pas aux parois d'armoire et aux parois multicouches si leur épaisseur dépasse 0,2 m. Elle ne s'applique également pas aux bannières et autres types de déflecteurs suspendus.

The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISOtechnical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has beenestablished has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental andnon-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the InternationalElectrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part2.The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standardsadopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as anInternational 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 patentrights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.ISO17624 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC43, Acoustics, Subcommittee SC1, Noise.SIST EN ISO 17624:2005

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDISO17624:2004(E)© ISO2004–All rights reserved1Acoustics— Guidelines for noise control in offices and workrooms by means of acoustical screens1ScopeThis International Standard deals with the effectiveness of acoustical screens. It specifies the acoustical andoperational requirements to be agreed upon between the supplier or manufacturer and the user of acousticalscreens. This International Standard is applicable to the following types of acoustical screens:a)free-standing acoustical screens for offices, service areas, exhibition areas, and similar rooms;b)acoustical screens integrated in the furniture of such rooms;c)portable and removable acoustical screens for workshops;d)fixed room partitions with more than

of the connecting area open and acoustically untreated.Walls of partial acoustic enclosures and cabins which, together with the room boundary surfaces, also partitiona room and provide more than

open and acoustically untreated area, are also treated as acousticalscreens.NOTEGuidance on complete acoustic enclosures is given in ISO15667.This International Standard is not applicable to cabinet walls and similar multi-layer walls whose thicknessexceeds , nor to banners and other types of suspended baffles.2Normative referencesThe following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.

in offices and workrooms.This attenuation results from (see Figure1):—sound absorption by the screen surface;—blocking of the direct sound propagation path from a source to the receiver;—partial decoupling of the sound fields on both sides of the screen.The sound reduction index of all components forming the screen is usually sufficiently large due to structuralrequirements and, therefore, does not need any further consideration.

The value of
