The purpose of fire and smoke seals is obvious – they provide an extra level of fire protection in any building, whether that be domestic or commercial, that they are installed in. However, the need for soundproofing seals is less obvious. In this post we’d like to explore why you may have a need for soundproofing seals without even knowing it.
What are soundproofing seals?
Let’s start with the basics – round the edges of a door there is a gap. This gap has a purpose, as without it the door could not open and close. However, this gap is the perfect place for sounds to travel through. Which is why sound proof seals were created. These seals are installed around the door, fill the gap and serve to deaden the sound travelling from room to room.
Why might you need them?
There are two main reasons why an organisation may get soundproof seals installed. The first is the main reason that offices and other such buildings/organisation get sound proof seals installed, and that is confidentiality. Conversations literally do not travel from room to room and so they can happen in confidence.
The second is that in some buildings it is a legal requirement to have soundproof seals installed. In buildings like hotels and sometimes schools there is a legal requirement to ensure that the volume in each room is kept below a certain level, which sound proofing seals can aid with.
What are the benefits?
The benefits are obvious – a quieter room. There are multiple benefits to having quieter rooms. As previously mentioned, it allows for confidential conversations to take place, without the fear of private information leaking. The second is that quiet rooms allows for greater levels of concentration. This has obvious benefits for both the workplace and the classroom.
