Soundproof doors and their use in commercial settings
Requiring extensive planning and design, ranging from floor plans, building materials, colors and many, many more, commercial buildings are not simply structures that can be quickly constructed or ill-planned; if they're to suit the needs of your clients, they'll need to be both effective and attractive.
Every commercial space also has its unique set of soundproofing and acoustic needs, and unlike colors or materials, there is no simple solution such as a one-size-fits-all remedy. However, here at Door and Dock Solutions, we have an extensive range of commercial soundproofing products available, and can help you make your building feel as balanced as you need it to be, no matter how full or empty. Even if your building is already in the construction phase and you haven't thoroughly assessed your soundproofing needs, we're on hand around the clock to help you choose the right products to acoustically improve your building; it's never too late.
What is a soundproof door?
With open plan buildings continuing to prove popular among many modern businesses, architects and building owners are increasingly searching for new solutions to help solve soundproofing issues, so that the noise in one area, doesn't encroach on all other areas. Acoustic or soundproofed doors, are engineered in such a way that they prevent a certain amount of sound from passing through them.
Who might benefit from a soundproof door?
Our soundproofed doors are extremely effective in a variety of settings, such as:
- Manufacturing facilities
- Music studios
- Office buildings
- Military units
Soundproofed doors are increasingly used in hospitals to help those patients who may be negatively impacted by poor acoustical conditions, and can even give family members and other visitors to a hospital, a more private, comfortable and safe experience. Musicians also benefit hugely from soundproofed doors, and for obvious reasons: whether in a practice room or home studio, sound quality can have a big impact upon their abilities to remain focused and rehearse to the best of their ability.
How are soundproofed doors rated?
Soundproofed doors are rated using a Sound Transmission Class (STC) scale, which specifies how much sound is prevented from passing through a door. The higher the rating, the more resistant to sound, the door is.
The STC scale begins at 25 and ends at 60+, as detailed below
- 25 = normal speech can be easily and clearly heard
- 30 = loud speech can be understood reasonably well, while normal speech can be heard but not understood
- 35 = loud speech is audible but is unintelligible
- 40 = onset of 'privacy'
- 42 = loud speech is heard as a murmur
- 45 = loud speech is not audible
- 50 = very loud sounds, such as musical instruments or a stereo, can be heard faintly
- 60+ = superior soundproofing; most sounds are inaudible
