Soundproof Door Installation & Repair

sound proof doors

Installing soundproof doors prevents sound waves from escaping the rooms where they’re generated while simultaneously insulating the rest of the building from ambient noise.

sound proof doors

Soundproof doors reduce noise pollution within your business. Standard, hollow core doors are often the thinnest barrier between rooms, a weak spot for sound transmission.

Materials

Soundproof doors are constructed from dense materials that absorb and repel sound waves. Generally, the heavier the door, the more effective it is at blocking noise. Several types of soundproof doors are available, some capable of reducing sound by up to 47 decibels.

If you’re curious about the strength of a door, check its STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating, which measures the acoustical performance of doors, walls, and windows. The higher the number, the more it dampens sound. Standard doors have an STC rating of 25. A solid, wood slab has an STC rating of 60.

But to be effective, soundproof doors require both a strong STC rating and solid weatherproofing. Without rubber seals around the edge, noise will leak in through gaps in the doorway.

Applications

Though recording studios obviously require soundproof doors, a wide range of businesses benefit from them, including:

  • Office Buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Factories
  • Theaters
  • Concert Halls
  • Convention Centers
  • Schools and Universities

Installing soundproof doors in your building not only reduces disturbances, it also enhances:

  • Security. Because soundproofing materials are so heavy, soundproof doors present stronger obstacles to intruders.
  • Privacy. Soundproofing reduces the risk of eavesdropping, a valuable feature for industries such as healthcare where confidential information is discussed regularly.
  • Health. Loud work environments can damage your hearing, especially over a long period of time.
  • Energy Efficiency. Soundproofing materials are good insulators. As a result, soundproof doors make it easier to control temperatures in your building.

What Our Customers Are Saying

David W.
I'm a Building Engineer and use these guys all the time. They are my number one go to vendor for any and all types of door repairs. I've read on some other reviews that they are too expensive but I have not found that they are over priced at all. You get what you pay for, most doors and entrances are heavily used and you want to hire quality repairmen/women when you really need the job done right.They are always quick to respond with lots of insight as to how to fix, repair, and prevent future breakdowns. Never had any issues with a door or entryway breaking down again after they have repaired it and all their work has stood the test of time. I highly recommend their services and even though I can choose from many other local and national vendors in the area, I always prefer Vortex when I need the job done quickly, properly, and without future issues.

Thanks to Greg for his help on our back door

Irving and Dymitry were AMAZING!!! Payed attention to detail and noticed that the door was not fully aligned and they took their time to align is without us mentioning. Only reason I point this level of attention is due to having many other vortex technicians come out and just do what they had to do and leave. Knowing that they were going to get paid regardless. They also both had GREAT communication skills as well as their customer service!!
