Acoustic control within buildings using acoustic doors can be a complex area traditionally involving either specialist consultants or a purely subjective approach. However, higher density living and the growth in noise sources today have increased awareness and driven measures to reduce problems resulting from noise pollution.
In particular, Part E of the Building Regulations 2003 now includes quantifiable acoustic performance levels to ensure reasonable conditions in a wider range of residential buildings. Although not regulated, the best approach to non-residential building types should also be reconsidered along similar lines.
