Doorsorba™ acoustic doors are extremely high performance sound reducing timber doorsets.
These high quality doorsets are available in a wide range of finishes and are fire rated. Used in areas which require high sound reduction performance such as theatre, radio/TV studios, music rooms, interview rooms, cinemas, schools and confidential offices.
DOORSORBA acoustic doorsets are installed in a similar manner as normal timber doors. Doorsets are supplied at a moisture content of 6-12% and should not be brought on site until conditions are suitable. Wet trades should be complete and the building dried out and brought to normal working room temperature. DO NOT build-in or install frames as first-fixings.
1. Check the sizes of the doors, the frames and the openings prior to starting installation. Only skilled tradesmen should undertake installation as correct fitting door/frame is imperative.
2. Frames should be fitted to the supporting construction using steel fixings at 500mm maximum centres for starting no less than 100mm from base and head.
The fixings should be appropriate for the supporting construction and sink into it by a minimum depth of 50mm. It is recommended that fixings should be staggered down each jamb with one fixing behind each hinge and the others behind the stops.
Doorsets should have gaps of up to 5mm between the frame and the supporting construction stuffed with mineral wool and fully filled to a depth of 30mm on both faces with a suitable mastic.
3. The weight of acoustic doorsets are heavier than would normally be handled by one person. Larger sized doors should normally be handled by more than two people.
Doors should be stacked on a flat and level surface with a minimum of 3 equally spaced bearers. Doors must not be double stacked on top of each other.
4. Decorative veneered doorsets should be protected from strong light in order to prevent discolouration. Full installation instructions are supplied with doorset delivery.
