Acoustically Tested — Quiet Door™ Perimeter Seals are tested for acoustic performance by independent laboratories. Quality – Quiet Door™ Perimeter Seals are manufactured with high quality aluminum framing and have durable, long lasting Silicone seals. All included mounting hardware is made of stainless steel. These products are considered industrial grade.
Longevity — Due to the high quality Silicone seal, the noise reduction performance will last longer than other vinyl and foams seals available on the market.
Ease of Installation — Quiet Door™ Perimeter Seals install easily and only require a drill / drill bits , for pre-drilling, and few basic hand tools. Instructions are included in the packaging.
Energy Saving Quiet Door™ Perimeter Seals not only improve the soundproofing performance of common doors, but they also improve the thermal capabilities by reducing airflow transfer.
Variety — Quiet Door™ Perimeter Seals are sold in packages that treat a standard 36 in. x 86 in. door. For doors smaller simply trim the material to fit, please see Cautions and Limitations. (link to “Cautions and Limitations” section below) For larger doors we will custom build to your door. For over-sized door applications, please contact our Acoustic Consultants for information.

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.

CAUTIONS AND LIMITATIONS
The Quiet Door™ line of perimeter seals and sweeps can be used on almost any door to reduce sound transfer and they can be used on almost any door type. Some older doors may not have enough mounting area. Please double check all measurements and dimensions.
For doors with overhead closers, install seals before the closer. Seals installed at head will require the closer body be installed 1/4” lower on the door.
The Quiet Door™ line of perimeter seals and sweeps may need to be trimmed to fit. When trimming our Adjustable or Automatic products, care should be taken to not cut internal mechanisms that could impact the functionality of the product.
Some pre-drilling is required.
