Acoustic Door Seal Kit Explanation
One of our acoustical sales consultants explains how to use the components of an acoustical door seal kit to soundproof your door.
Acoustic Door Seals: Before and After Demonstration
We show you the difference between a normal door's decibel reduction and a door with an Acoustic Door Seal on it.
Custom sized door seals are available. Please Contact Us with the specific requirements of your door or project and we can provide a solution suited to your needs.
The acoustical seals we carry are manufactured to block sound. For instance, the model # 485 jamb seals are tested to achieve up to an STC 47 and the 770 jamb seals are tested to achieve up to an STC 52 in certain door assemblies.

Our Acoustic Door Seal Kit includes jamb seals, a threshold seal and an automatic door bottom to acoustically seal a 36″ x 84″ door. Unsealed gaps and clearances in door assemblies effectively cancel out the soundproofing benefits of the highest-rated acoustical doors. You can use these acoustic door seal kits on a range of wood or metal doors to reinforce the STC (Sound Transmission Loss) of the existing doors and walls.
A 1% opening around a door will allow up to 50% of the sound energy to pass through that opening. Consider this: a 1/8″ opening around all four sides of a door will reduce the effective rating of an STC 52 door down to an STC 21, guaranteeing very poor acoustical performance. Our Acoustical Door Seal Kits close off these clearances or openings.
Each Acoustic Door Seal Kit includes an automatic door bottom, which is spring operated, dropping a neoprene seal onto a threshold and effectively sealing off the bottom of the door. In addition to that, our Acoustic Door Seal Kits include high-grade neoprene door jams for the vertical sides and top of the door.
You can field cut these door jambs to shorter lengths to fit smaller doors. You can also trim the automatic door bottom, but cuts should not be closer than 1″ to the set screw. Thresholds are field cut to fit between existing door jamb.
Custom door seals are available for oversized doors as well as double doors. These products are manufactured with a tolerance of +/- 1/8″.
We supply each of the following kits with the same 367 automatic door bottom and offer you a choice of two thresholds. All components have a clear anodized aluminum finish.
