Acoustic Calculator

The Acoustic Calculator on the Oracle is a cost effective alternative to acoustic labelling and testing schemes. It enables subscribers to the Oracle to quickly calculate the acoustic performance of a range of frame and glazing options and in most cases, with no need for acoustic testing in a laboratory.

Subscribers can then have the calculations verified with a report from an accredited UKAS notified body such as Build Check Limited.

How it works
Calculations from the Oracle online U-value calculator are recognised by FENSA and Certass for their competent person schemes. Once subscribed it’s quick and easy to assess product performance and is pre-loaded with product data for many popular window and door set suites from major PVCu window system companies.
FAQs
How do I work out an acoustic calculation?
As an installer or fabricator, you will already appreciate the importance of accurate, industry standard acoustic calculations for your product. As well as being an essential aspect of achieving your CE mark, it is also vital product information in and of itself. The traditional way to work out the acoustic calculations of a product is to go through acoustic labelling tests in a laboratory setting. This can provide the required information, but can also be time consuming and costly. A new option for gaining accurate information about the acoustic performance of a product is to use the acoustic calculator on The Oracle, an online hub created to give fabricators and installers a fast and easy way to comply with the new CE marking legislation and Building Regulations Part L. The calculator enables subscribers to quickly calculate the acoustic performance of a range of frame and glazing options meaning there is no need, in most cases, to undertake acoustic testing in a laboratory. Subscribers can then have the calculations verified with a report from a accredited UKAS notified body such as Build Check. If you would like more information about The Oracle, please click here.
