How to Soundproof Double Doors

How to Soundproof Double Doors
June 21, 2024

While double doors can add an attractive feature to your home, they can also make it easier for sound to enter and infiltrate your home. Because of how they are designed, it can sometimes be a little more complicated to minimize sound from these types of doors completely. There are several tips and tricks that you can try to soundproof a double door.

Types of Sound Problems With Double Doors

When it comes to double doors, you will likely find a couple of different sound problems you could be facing. These types of doors are typically less dense than other kinds of doors or walls, which means it is easier for sound to enter your rooms, especially with the gaps and openings in between the doors.

If you are experiencing unwanted sounds in your home, there are two main types of noise you could be dealing with:

  • Airborne noise: Any noise transferred through the air is considered airborne noise. This could be anything from a TV blaring in another room or your dogs barking at mail delivery people. Airborne noise is usually what happens with double doors due to sound escaping around the doors.  Sound is like water and will take the path of least resistance.  If there are gaps around the perimeter and base of the doors, sound will leak through.
  • Impact noise: Whenever an object falls and makes contact with a surface, the surface will vibrate, causing sound. One of the most common areas where this can happen is the floor. Anything from footsteps to accidentally dropping an object can cause impact noise.

How to Soundproof Double Doors

Ensuring the perimeters of the doors are sealed with door seals is a great first step to reduce unwanted noise. You want to create a barrier to block the sound from entering your space. There are several different types of door seals and sweeps that can help you soundproof your space.

These products are versatile enough to work with all kinds of doors, ranging from interior wood doors to metal doors. They will fill the gap so it is harder for the sound wave to pass through.

Kellen has been a member of the sales team for over a decade. Prior to delving into the soundproofing realm, he was a jack of all trades in the service industry, working both front and back of the house jobs to various degrees. This diversity in experience makes it easy to relate to the needs of a large customer base. He understands noisy environments as well as the importance of aesthetics in a space. Adding something that doesn’t fit the look can be intrusive, so knowing that acoustical needs must fit the interior design is something he’s become very well-versed in. Most of this planning comes from working with both the owner/operators as well as their design team and architects. He has been able to adapt his knowledge in the restaurant industry into projects involving schools, office buildings and large medical facilities when the situation calls for it.
