Acoustic Doorseal Kits for Soundproofing a Door

Becoming more and more popular are our Acoustic Doorseal Kits designed to upgrade the soundproofing properties of lightweight domestic doors often found in the home.  Bespoke Acoustic Doorsets are often too expensive for domestic use so the Acoustic Doorseal Kits are more affordable and can easily be fitted by and DIY orientated person.  The kits comprise the normal triangular shaped “batwing” seals that when fitted to the doorframe, will seal the sides and top of a door and also a two part threshold seal for sealing the gap at the bottom of the door and it is this gap that usually lets the most noise through.  In addition, the kit contains a sheet of SBM5 soundproofing mat and this can be glued or stapled to the door then covered with a sheet of ply or MDF to finish it off.  The Acoustic Doorset Kits are very easy to fit and come complete with installation instructions, adhesive screws.  The kits can be supplied to fit both single and double doors and once fitted, will improve the soundproofing properties of a typical lightweight domestic door from about 15dB to around 30dB.  Alternatively, a heavy fire door could be used which is loads cheaper than a bespoke Acoustic Doorset and if fitted with one of our Acoustic Doorseal Kits will also give enhanced soundproofing performance.  If a higher performing acoustic door is required then we can supply either a 35dB or 44dB rated doorset complete with frame and hinges.  However, because these are made to order you have to allow around five weeks for delivery after receipt of any order and payment.  For more information on our Acoustic Doors and Doorseal Kits or any other soundproofing products for the home, go to our domestic web site at www.keepitquiet.co.uk

Acoustic Doorsets for Domestic Installation

Noise through lightweight internal doors is often a problem and budget is sometimes too restricted to exchange for a bespoke acoustic doorset.  The answer is to fit one of our Acoustic Doorseal Kits if a bespoke Acoustic Doorset is beyond budget.  Although not as efficient as an acoustic doorset the lighter weight door can still be upgraded to give more soundproofing.  With lightweight doors noise can easily penetrate through them and also leak around the edges with most noise going underneath where a larger gap can often be found.  The Acoustic Doorseal Kits include self-adhesive acoustic batwing seals that can be fitted to the sides and top of the frame and will seal the doorleaf when closed and also a two part seal for the all important threshold at the bottom.  This comprises a rubber seal that is fixed to the floor and a metal strip screwed to the bottom of the door.  When the door is closed, the metal strip seals against the rubber thus making a more efficient acoustically treated door that will leak a lot less noise when closed.  To address the low density of the door, the kit also includes a 2mm thick heavy soundproofing mat that can be fixed to one side of the doorleaf.  When a thin panel of wood is fixed on top the soundproofing mat is hidden from view and you now have a door that previously had a soundproofing value of less than 20 dB that has been upgraded to about 30dB.  For more information and help on all of our soundproofing products for domestic applications go to  www.keepitquiet.co.uk
