Acoustic doors or soundproof doors, what are they? What are these technical doors for?

In fact, the acoustic doors or soundproof doors are, next to acoustic ceilings and acoustic panels, key components in soundproofing a room.
Anyone can recognise two clear situations where soundproofing a space is necessary: when there are sounds outside that prove annoying for the internal acoustics of the room, or when sounds that are produced inside are annoying or one does not wish that they transcend outside. In both cases what is being sought is that the room offer independence and soundproofing with respect to the outside, and acoustic conditioning work includes the use of acoustic doors or soundproof doors.
These acoustic doors or soundproof doors that have a standard appearance can in fact offer the same finish as other standard doors (laminated HPL, veneers, MDF for painting, lacquers, etc.). Among their components they have specific soundproofing seals at various points on the door to ensure the sound tightness of the enclosed space. Depending on the insulation requirements required by the acoustic conditioning of a space, either acoustic doors or soundproof doors should be used with different insulation levels (32 dB, 34 dB, 38 dB and 42 dB) and they should be approved and certified. Finally, considering the aesthetic requirements of the room, you may install acoustic doors or soundproof doors with glass visors or any other hardware or accessory.
