A special rubber loop and metal strip cut to fit your 36″ door bottom edge-
After dealing with the window, sound control in a room should go to the door: a typical interior style hollow core door will pass sound quite readily. (An STC of much less than 20- this means conversation can easily be heard). If possible, it should be replaced with a solid, exterior door, the thickest you can find. “MDF” (Medium Density Fiberboard) doors are cheap and have good sound blocking qualities.
Make sure it’s well fitted to the frame, no gaps or crevices for sound to migrate through. If there is, use our closed cell tape that comes with this kit, (not from the hardware store).
The door should be sealed off as if it was 40 degrees below zero on one side. If it has a gap over 3/4″ at the bottom, use a threshold on the floor to meet the bottom of the sweep.
Kit and tape: 36″ max length for standard price of $36 PP We have custom widths, Inquire!
