AbstractNoise in stairwells and corridors is often disturbing to people in the rooms and in adjoining rooms, especially in housing and in schools. For that reason, several European countries include reverberation time requirements in their acoustic regulations as a way to control noise in stairwells and other communal areas. However, acoustic requirements vary widely between countries and are missing in some countries. This paper compares reverberation time and sound absorption requirements for stairwells and corridors for housing and schools in selected countries in Europe, and it includes up-to-date information on the applied limit values, frequency ranges, measurement standards and verification procedures.
