The Qualities of Acoustic Glazed Doors
In terms of sound reduction, standard industry measurements in the UK tend to be incredibly precise. During development, independent test facilities subject acoustic glazed doors to a wide spectrum of different frequencies. Testers use an average result to determine acoustic performance because human ears can’t pick up every possible sound.
Think of dogs, and the fact that they have more sensitive hearing than people – sensitive enough to pick up on high-pitched frequencies that we can never hear.
Different doors, understandably, have different characteristics and their own performance against acoustic frequencies. In turn, this means that the highest acoustic rating isn’t necessarily going to be the best for a certain type of room space because it may be subjected to frequencies that we, as people, cannot audibly perceive.
ModernGlide Ltd offers expert help and advice on the most appropriate doors for your home or business property.
Door Frames – Acoustic glazed doors have seals which stop sound penetrating the edges and, on most installations, will also have automatic drop seals to close gaps beneath the door itself. Our company fits doors and frames as complete units. Please be aware that our doors can be manufactured bespoke to your preferred size and colour finish.
Glass Panels – While it is possible to include glass vision panels on your installation, please be aware that this sometimes causes limitations on certain products. This is never the case when you purchase acoustic glazed doors from ModernGlide. All products installed nationwide by our company offer exceptional sound and fire-resistant performance.
On the subject of fire resistance, our doors offer between 30 minutes and 4 hours of protection based on the type of product you choose.
