Wood soundproof doors are a key element in ensuring good acoustics in a room. They can be used in any type of building to achieve a desired soundproofing, but if there is a space or room where acoustics is really important, it is cultural buildings such as auditoriums, museums, libraries, schools music and culture centres or homes.
From a decorative standpoint the use of wood in a project brings warmth, elegance and distinction. We will not enjoy these advantages by merely including wood acoustic doors in our project, but they do help in larger decorating projects with a more global scope.
Acoustically speaking, acoustic doors or soundproof doors have, among their components, specific soundproofing seals at various points on the door to ensure the sound tightness of the enclosed space.
This helps the soundproofing of a room in two ways. On the one hand they prevent unwanted sounds to enter the room from outside to hamper listening to music or speeches in the case of auditoriums, or to maintain a suitable level of silence in other rooms, such as reading and consulting rooms in libraries. They also reduce the transmission of sound from inside the room towards the outside, which ensures the acoustic independence between adjacent spaces needed to carry out different activities simultaneously.
