May 13, 2021

A thoughtful and profoundly informational article on acoustic products and their testing methods by Arktura’s Director of Product Development, John Johnston, is currently featured in GB&D (Green Building & Design) Pro.   

GB&D, a leading resource for architects, builders, and developers concerned with sustainability, invited Arktura to contribute and share its insights as a thought leader in the architectural and acoustics industry and one that is explicitly aiming to elevate sustainability in all its practices. This is the first of what will be a series of articles centering on crucial subjects in the architectural space, correlating all back to sustainability, as part of Arktura’s goal to reduce the impact of our industry on the environment. 


Titled “Sifting Through the Noise: Finding Truth in the Noise Reduction Coefficient,” the article reveals some cryptic truths regarding acoustic testing and rating methods equipping its readers with the knowledge needed to sidestep frequent pitfalls. In the article, John describes the methodology and philosophy behind Arktura’s True NRC™ initiative and True NRC™ rating system.
