Acoustic Considerations and Door Systems in Healthcare, Hospitality, Education, and Office Facilities

An architect that designs buildings with acoustics in mind will create better environments for the end user, improving everything from patient healthcare outcomes to student reading and test scores. However, a room is only as good as its weakest link, and while walls and ceilings often are discussed when it comes to acoustics, door systems seldom are.

Improving acoustics in commercial and institutional buildings can benefit occupants within healthcare, hospitality, education, and office environments. This course will discuss how door systems specifically play a vital acoustic role within each sector.
