Door seal specialist Norseal has taken the hard work out of finding the right acoustic door seal with the launch of the latest version of its Acoustic Selector. They have carried out more than 400 sound attenuating tests with a variety of door types and seal configurations, so that specifiers can quickly and easily find the perfect door and seal combination to match their project’s acoustic requirements.
Doors with an acoustic rating are being increasingly specified in commercial, healthcare, education and industrial settings, as well as residential. Whilst the structure of sound attenuating doors is clearly vital, many are let down by the seals selected.
Ordinary fin or brush seals simply will not do the job of blocking sound from passing through the gaps around the door so Norseal supplies a range of acoustic seals solutions including its feature-packed Complete Sealing System which provides smoke and draft protection as well as acoustic insulation around the full perimeter of most sliding door applications.
The Norseal Acoustic Selector is now smarter and easier to use than ever with all acoustic test reports and production information in one place. Smart filters refine the search criteria with easy-to-use toggles, sliders and checkboxes. Once the correct seal has been identified it is easy to download a CAD, fitting guide or certification for any seal configuration. The Norseal Acoustic Selector can be found at www.acousticselector.com/
