As part of their mission to provide resources for everyone in the industry, Plastpro has created a new AIA course centered on Sound Class Transmission (STC), Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class (OITC), and how to design for acoustic comfort using fiberglass doors.
AIA courses are part of the American Institute of Architect’s (AIA) continuing education program that is geared towards architects and builders. These courses earn credits that AIA members are required to complete. Course topics range from arts, architecture, construction, planning, design, etc.
Plastpro has been creating AIA courses for over 8 years and began creating them to strengthen their relationship with customers and builders.
The new STC course provides an overview of how architects can utilize fiberglass doors when designing for acoustic comfort. It will help architects and anyone interested in building understand the background and importance of designing for acoustic comfort, differentiate between STC and OITC used in building design, and learn about the best uses when selecting fiberglass doors for design projects.
