Federal Aviation Regulation Part 150 Study

Sound Control Systems specializes in manufacturing acoustical window and door products that meet the FAA Part 150 Sound Insulation Program guidelines.

The FAA Part 150 study describes the federal guidelines for determining noise sensitive areas near an airport. These guidelines employ a computer model which utilizes data gathered over a 365 day period. This process ensures an accurate portrayal of noise levels near an airport. These guidelines are used to develop a noise exposure map that outlines areas eligible for sound work.

Once consulted, Sound Control Systems presents products and solutions to reduce and mitigate aircraft noise. Sound Control products can provide relief to noise impacted areas. Noise mitigation projects are the principal means available to further reduce the number of people exposed to airport noise.

Mark Culverson, Sound Control Systems Division Manager, is also a distinguished contributor of the ACRP Report 89 – Guidelines for Airport Sound Insulation Programs.
