Best deck doors for traffic noise
« on: September 07, 2017, 01:00:14 PM »

Hi

Are sliding doors with laminate or standard swing double doors with laminate insert better for sound attenuation?

Thanks

When choosing doors with glass you need to get as much mass and air gap as possible.

You need to look for STC and OITC ratings, the higher the number the better the reduction.

Milgard has a slider that performs quite well .
