acoustic doorMany professional environments combine public and private spaces. Healthcare facilities have spaces for general patient population and visitors as well as individual offices for consultations and exams. Offices and high-tech businesses have floor space for department employees as well as private spaces for meetings and work sessions. An effective way to delineate between these spaces allows workplaces to adapt space for their usage needs. In situations where spaces for private conversations or quiet work spaces for teams and individuals are necessary, an acoustic door can be an effective solution. Architects and designers can effectively integrate these doors into a variety of spaces. There are many options of door types, seals, materials and openings. In considering the inclusion of an acoustic door style in environments such as corporate offices or healthcare facilities, there are several benefits.

Soundproofing

Private spaces such as meeting rooms, patient exam rooms, and individual offices require sound control to prevent sound and confidential conversations from leaking out of the space. These types of doors are also useful in reducing the amount of noise entering the space when quiet and concentration are essential. Sliding doors by AD Systems that are designed with acoustics in mind are very suitable for controlling sound through the doorway and are designed for sound mitigation within your work area depending on your needs. Sliding doors save space while allowing for proper isolation. Acoustic door styles can be designed to provide as much soundproofing as is needed in a particular work area, using various hardware options and perimeter seals.

Privacy

Maintaining patient privacy is essential in healthcare facilities. Installing high-performing acoustic elements ensures that private and confidential interactions are confined to the space. Office environments, such as human resources departments or executive offices, also benefit from the privacy that these doors provide. Although many high-tech businesses promote open floor plans for easier collaboration, acoustic doors made with glass allow these environments to still retain the openness while providing privacy for confidential meetings and quiet work sessions.

Customization

No matter the size of your space or office front, your space can be outfitted with the appropriate doors in a variety of finishes. Available panel materials include glass to maintain openness, wood to integrate with office design, or aluminum. Glass options are available that perform at high acoustic levels. Glazing and etching are available to further promote privacy without relinquishing the natural light and openness that glass allows. Different types of acoustic products promote additional sound barriers, with accessories such as seals and hardware. Sliding doors are often thought of as problematic when it comes to soundproofing. Perimeter seals address the gaps that occur. Acoustic jamb gasketing is a solution that further enhances privacy and reduces noise bleed when doors are closed.
