Doors pose a problem when it comes to stopping noise from travelling in or out of a room. They are, by their nature, movable and inherently lighter than the wall they fit in. Whether you’re trying to stop noise coming in or out of your bedroom or a music studio, the principles are the same and can be address with our door soundproofing install packages.
Our door soundproofing package
We look to reduce airborne noise travelling through a door by addressing two fundamental issues.
- Door mass – is low in mass then it will not perform well when it comes to stopping noise. Noise is dampened by both mass and density so changing the door to something with more mass such as a fire door or a specialist soundproofed door will help reduce noise transfer between spaces dramatically. If you wish to keep the existing door then we would upgrade the door with extra mass on one side.
- Gaps around the door – the smallest gap around the door can let a lot of noise through so addressing this issue with professional door seals is a must. We typically route in drop seals into the bottom of the door which mechanically drop down when the door is closed. We also seal around the door so there are no gaps.
