Reducing the passage of sound should be considered during the design and installation of doorsets. A reduction in acoustic interference can help improve personal wellbeing, and increase productivity and creativity. To prevent noise disturbance, it is important to ensure the appropriate acoustic insulation is suitable for the intended purpose of use for the space. If the purpose of use changes, the level of acoustic insulation needs to be reassessed to suit.
Perimeter gaps around a timber door leaf are essential for the functionality of the doorset. However they present a weak point when it comes to effective acoustic sealing. The fitting of Harmony® acoustic seals minimises the sound transfer between rooms, whilst having a minimal impact on the functionality of the doorset.
The Harmony® range has verified acoustic performance as demonstrated in accordance
with BS EN ISO 10140-2: 2010.
