Filling in the room data form

* The room / space’s dimensions should be obvious enough to fill in.
Use Meters for all dimensions, sizes and measurements
* Room “type” and “use” information is entered by drop down menu.
Just pick the closest applicable.
You should fall comfortably into an available category. For example, if you have an art gallery that you want to make feel more cozy by reducing it’s brash, lively acoustic, select: “retail outlet” for smaller spaces and actual shops, or “large public / retail space” for larger or “hall” based gallery spaces.
* The wall, ceiling & floor descriptions are also entered by a drop down menu.
Again, pick the closest applicable – you should find an option that fits ok.
* Window and glazed area questions require the answer’s in SQUARE METERS.
Just enter the number of SQUARE METERS of window / glazing for each wall
(Example:- 1.2 x 1.4 meter window = 1.68 Sq meters. Enter 1.68 in the box)
* How many people ???
For any space, except for things like shopping malls, galleries, exhibitions Etc. people would normally be seated. Leave the “people standing” box set to zero, but reset the number of expected “seated people” from the default (5)
In the case of something like a home cinema, this is sensibly the same as the “number of seats”
In the case of the previously mentioned art gallery example, reset the “seated people” box to zero, and enter your expected number of people in the space at any one time, in the “people standing” box.

* Check the “Apex ceiling” box if you have an apex rather than a flat ceiling.

* Check the “odd” shape box, if the space is anything but a rectangle.
Ignore “small details” like these, and measure the length and width as arrowed.

Fields marked with a * are required.
