Certification for Acoustic Doors
Today an acoustic certification is one of the most sought after, the tranquility of an office, a hotel room or residence is essential; that is why we seek to give you the option of combining the design of your door with features that can add value to your project.
Sound tests are carried out by laboratories where, with special tools, the sound levels that manage to pass from one place to another are verified. With our product you can have a fire rated door and give your clients an adequate rest.
Sound levels are based on decibels (dB) or transmission sound class (STC) that are used to measure the intensity of a sound. WKS currently holds the following sound certifications:
28dB | 30dB | 32dB | 36dB | 42dB
The use of automatic door bottoms and adhesive gasketing on the frame are recommended for the best performance.
