Sound regulations for buildings aim to ensure a good sound environment, and impose limits for:
Reverberation in premises (resonance effect of a building or room)
Noise insulation against external airborne noise (road, rail or air traffic) and internal noise (conversations, television, hi-fi), impact noise (moving furniture, dropped objects) and equipment noise (lifts, plumbing, ventilation).
These regulations apply particularly in the renovation of public spaces, with (in France) minimum acoustic treatment sound absorption of 25% (alpha sabine absorption coefficient = 0.25). In new construction in France, thermal and acoustic requirements are defined in the RT 2020 or NRA standards.
