Quiet Door™ Automatic Door Sweeps reduce noise transfer through doors by forming a tight fit against the threshold of a door. This product can be installed on new doors with cheap vinyl sweeps, or to existing doors with old, worn-out sweeps. Quiet Door™ Automatic Door Sweeps can be installed on wood and metal doors. Quiet Door™ Automatic Sweeps are made of heavy duty aluminum, long lasting silicone seals and include all stainless steel hardware. Silicone seals remain flexible in a variety of temperatures and resist tears better then the less durable, widely available vinyl and foam seals. Quiet Door™ Automatic Door Sweeps are automatic, meaning, that as the door closes the seal is pushed snuggly to the threshold. As the seal materials age, the spring action pushes the seal snuggly to the threshold to reestablish a like new fit. Our Quiet Door™ Automatic Door Sweeps will decrease air flow, increasing the thermal performance of any door.

Soundproofing seals and sweeps are tested with operational doors. Operational meaning they open and close like a door should. Then, a separate test is completed on a “static door”, a door that is non operational. The static door will have a higher Sound Transmission Class (STC) number due to the lack of air gaps. When a door is hung the soundproofing performance plummets because of the additional air spaces. Compare the static door rating to the operational door rating. The smaller the difference in STC rating, the better the perimeter seals and sweeps will reduce noise transfer.
All of our Quiet Door™ Soundproofing products were tested as assemblies and not single products. Our tests included perimeter seals, doors sweeps and thresholds. For help in choosing an assembly or single product for your situation, please give our friendly consultants a call at 1-866-949-9269.
