Acoustic Door Solutions
An acoustic door is essential for noise mitigation and securing privacy in sensitive environments. Modern facilities often look to acoustic doors to meet their specific noise specifications, as well as contribute to the aesthetics. For a practical and economical solution, an acoustic door can be a vital element for many businesses needing to properly soundproof select areas while saving space. The following will explain how an acoustic door provides the following three benefits in architectural design applications.
Office environments that combine several office spaces into one area often deal with environmental noise. This noise ranges from phone conversations and meetings to the sound of office equipment. Utilizing an acoustic door in office spaces and conference rooms provides an environment more conducive to productive work. Reducing or blocking noise is often necessary for work environments where sustained focus is required to concentrate on projects. Internal meetings and conferences with clients also benefit from using a space with an acoustic door. Less distraction means more productivity.
Privacy is a major concern in work environments such as medical facilities, human resource departments, and financial institutions. With many industry mandates in place, many of these environments are concerned about maintaining privacy and confidentiality when meeting with clients or with internal staff. An acoustic door provides not only a barrier to noise leaking into a space, but also reduces or blocks sound from leaking out. Medical offices, financial institutions, human resources departments, and other environments concerned about privacy will benefit from incorporating acoustic doors into their office designs. For the most secure office space or conference rooms, each acoustic door can be designed to the noise specifications of the environment.
Aesthetics and Space
An acoustic door can combine functionality with aesthetics to fit into any office environment. The use of a variety of materials and styles can increase the space and add to the overall style. For a modern style, sliding doors are great for a sleek look that easily integrates into the architecture. Although sliding doors are not customarily seen as good sound barriers, AD Systems has designed special acoustical seals, which allow for the isolation needed. Doors manufactured from different materials such as wood, metal, or glass provide different acoustic ratings. Taking into account the size of the space, the amount and sources of sound, and the location and function of the doors will determine what type of material is best for an effective sound barrier. Every acoustic door can be customized to create an aesthetic look for a particular office environment, while meeting code requirements. Different materials, colors, and styles provide an opportunity to make the environment unique and to emphasize a company’s brand or style.
