At Trane, a comfortable, efficient building is our ultimate goal. An important element of comfort is acoustics. In fact, building occupants consistently cite noise, uncomfortable temperature, and poor indoor air quality as reasons for relocating from one rented space to another. Meeting the occupants’ acoustical needs is a critical yet often overlooked challenge.
Trane can help. We believe an important element of the prediction process is the availability of accurate, tested sound data for the components in and surrounding the space. We take pride in providing state-of-the-art sound data for our products that reflect the latest codes and test methods available. Contact your local Trane office to request Trane equipment selection software (TOPSS™).
The Trane Acoustics Program (TAP™) is a powerful acoustical modeling tool that helps designers accurately predict how sound from HVAC equipment will impact tenants and neighbors. TAP “builds” and analyzes sound paths by allowing the user to choose specific equipment and building components that generate, attenuate, reduce or regenerate sound. It a valuable tool in determining if a design qualifies for LEED for Schools criteria or the Classroom Acoustical Standard ANSI/ASA S12.60.
To assist design professionals, Trane has a broad array of educational and instructional documents and application experts that can assist you with the acoustical design for high performance buildings.
