Acoustic Doors

Acoustic doors are suitable for areas requiring a higher than normal degree of sound insulation such as hospitals, schools etc.  The doors are soundproofed using the relevant acoustic seals fitted to the doors and frames.

Timber acoustic doors are available in a wide range of veneer or laminate finishes and can be provided with a 30 minute (FD30) or 60 minute (FD60) fire resistance.
