Acoustic Doors & Windows


Acoustic Doors

Acoustic doors of either single or double leaf construction can be provided to suit a variety of applications and can be supplied in primer, pre-finished or with timber veneers. All doors are manufactured with matching frames to ensure a high standard of fit and hence, acoustic performance. For most applications we recommend the use of timber construction as this affords greater flexibility in terms of door furniture and finish treatments.
Description
Construction comprises a timber leaf with hardwood lippings to the perimeter. The door leaf is factory machined for the lock case and match manufactured with a hardwood frame, pre-assembled with all acoustic seals and hung on lift off hinges, ready for installation. The acoustic seals comprise flexible elements around the periphery, attached to the door and/or frame dependent on performance.The threshold is fitted with a drop-down seal, which is activated on door closure. Standard fitment door furniture comprises hinges and a Euro profile sash lock/cylinder with levers and escutcheons which are not part of a standard door but can be provided if requested. Alternative door furniture or self-closing devices can be provided to meet specific design requirements.

Door Finishes
The vast majority of our acoustic door-sets are supplied to site with a laminated finish to either side of the door leaf and clear satin varnish to the hardwood frame and lippings.These can be chosen from our large range of coloured and wood laminates. We can also supply doors in prime painted finish, pre-painted to an RAL 9010 colour or with a wood veneer finish.The natural finish of the hardwood,used to manufacture the door frames and window surrounds, can afford a pleasant contrast to the chosen finish for the door leaf.The peripheral acoustic seals are supplied with protective tape to facilitate ease of 'cutting in' when applying site treatments.

Acoustic Door Performance
Octave band centre frequency sound transmission loss measurements, carried out to standards NF S 31-049, S 31-050, S 31-051 and S 31-045, supplemented by standard ISO 717/1 for expression of single Rw values, are shown in the following table.



Size and Handling
Single and double leaf door-sets can be manufactured to suit most builders work opening sizes. All doors can be handed to suit your requirements and provided with or without thresholds. Where it is possible to use a standard size we prefer to use those tabulated below.


Non-Acoustic Doors
On larger projects where some of the doors may not need to be acoustically rated, but continuity of appearance is required, we can supply non-acoustic doors to suit.
Acoustic Door Seals
Timber and Steel Door-sets
A range of supplementary acoustic seals that can be readily attached to existing doors/door frames to improve acoustic performance.


Perimiter Seal
A neat compact perimeter seal that can be attached directly to the existing head and jambs or even used as the primary door stop. The seal comprises a silver anodised aluminium extruded section with a grey pvc cover strip to conceal the fixings and a black thermoplastic rubber compression seal.

A single door set pack consists of two lengths at 2.1m and one length at 1.0m. Other lengths are available on request. The seals can be readily cut to fit on site and are supplied with wood screws for fixing (self tapping screws for fixing to metal door frames are also available). Pre- drilled, slotted fixing holes allow adjustment and accurate positioning.



Meeting Stile Seal
Intended for double door arrangements to bridge gaps between the door leaves.The seal comprises a neat shallow silver anodised aluminium extruded section with two solid neoprene acoustic seals.The aluminium section is provided with pre-drilled holes for face fixing directly to the door and features a 'D' seal positioned over the door gap and a second seal across the face of the adjacent leaf. Available in three standard lengths of 1829mm,2134mm and 3048mm,all of which can be cut to suit.
