    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method describes the laboratory measurement of the sound transmission loss for door panels and door systems. It also includes the measurement of the force required to close and latch, as well as to unlatch the door under test. An appendix presents methods to determine the respective contribution of the door components and seals to the sound transmission loss of a door system.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E33 on Building and Environmental Acoustics, this test method was withdrawn in January 2009 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope
