Title: Door slamming noise reduction
Post by: Paul McSweeney on August 02, 2001, 05:55:19 PM
We have noisy neighbours who can't seem to distinguish between gently closing internal doors and slamming them. What solutions exist that would:-
- Prevent doors from being slammed to begin with
- Lessen the impact of a slam once it happens

using our soundproofing tape on the mating surfaces of the doors with not only improve the noise reduction of the door, but also reduce the impact noise.  Another method is to use a door closer, a device that fits at the top of the door, making it close securely as well as reducing the slam.  Look for it at the bottom of the page below.
