TMS’ Design Practices Committee has proposed revisions to the Standard Method for Determining Sound Transmission Ratings for Masonry Assemblies (TMS 302) from its previous version published in 2012.
Proposed revisions are largely administrative in nature and consist of:
- General updates to referenced standards;
- Clean-up and clarifications based on user input and Committee suggestions; and
- Reorganization for flow and clarity
As part of the review and approval process, TMS 302 is provided for public review and comment.
The public comment period is open from August 9, 2018 until September 24, 2018 at midnight Mountain Time.
The TMS Design Practices Committee is required to consider all comments received by the above deadline. The draft provisions of TMS 302 are to be considered as a mandatory-language document, whereas the corresponding commentary discussions are to be considered as a non-mandatory-language document.
