Why Acoustic Doors Are Important For Home Interiors
If you’ve ever been disturbed – and irritated – by noise coming from different parts of your home or office, then the solution could lie in your internal doors.
Standard wooden internal doors tend to only offer around 20db (decibels) of soundproofing. You can pretty much hear a ticking watch through one! As such, standard wooden doors do little to no good if you’re trying to reduce the levels of unwanted noise coming into your bedroom, living or work space.
Acoustic doors, on the other hand, have excellent soundproofing qualities that could help bring that longed-for tranquility to your home or office (one and the same for lots of people at the moment!).
What Are Acoustic Doors?
Acoustic doors can offer around 44db of sound resistance. That’s around the same amount of decibels as someone speaking loudly right outside the door… and we’ve all worked or lived with people that do that, haven’t we?
Even if someone actively shouts outside your door (squabbling kids, for example), good soundproof doors will ensure that they are only faintly audible – meaning that you can go on ignoring them and crack on with whatever it is you’re trying to do.
While you might be inclined to associate soundproof doors with recording studios, theatres, cinemas, some classrooms and company boardrooms, they are actually becoming an increasingly popular sound-dampening solution for home interiors.
Acoustic doors are particularly attractive to people that:
- Work from home
- Share a home with a house or flat mate
- Live with people that play instruments
- Just want some ‘chill’
- Want to get a better quality night’s sleep
Acoustic Doors As Valuable Home Improvement Features
The soundproofing qualities of acoustic doors mean that they are an attractive feature to potential homebuyers.
They are therefore an affordable home improvement for people selling their home and looking to maximise their resale value.
With more and more people working from home, the idea of moving into a home with soundproof doors could be hugely appealing to many potential buyers – and it could just be the feature that gives your home the extra edge needed to make a sale.
Plenty Of Choice On Offer
There are a few different kinds of acoustic doors out there.
At Vigor Doors, we supply acoustic doors which give two different levels of soundproofing.
Our low/medium performance doors offer a soundproofing level of up to 34dB, which will muffle the sound of a loud conversation – thereby making them not only an attractive proposition at home, but also for places where confidential conversations typically take place, such as doctors’ surgeries, dental practices and meeting rooms.
Our highest performance door offers up to 44dB of soundproofing, around the same level used by the majority of multiplex cinemas! Needless to say, these doors do make a world of difference – even shouting will be almost inaudible.
