What Are Acoustic Doors?
Any kind of door works as a sound barrier in some respect. With standard doors, however, sound waves will still manage to make their way through unless further preventative measures are taken. These measures include sound insulation and sound absorption – putting up an acoustic barrier.
The greater the mass of the insulation material per unit area of a door, the more soundproof it will be. A double-leaf partition – two sections separated by an air gap filled with a sound absorber – is an efficient and practical sound absorber.
