Making Beautiful Glass Doors work Beautifully

The beauty and versatility of glass makes it a popular door material choice with architects and interior designers, especially for minimalist and open plan settings where through-visibility is part of the design scheme. 

Now Norseal can make those sliding, swing or automatic glass doors perform and function beautifully with a range of acoustic and fire seals that will work superbly without compromising design lines.

Architects and designers are increasingly specifying glass doors as less wood or metal means improved daylighting, unobstructed views, and a high-end, contemporary aesthetic. But sealing those glass doors has traditionally been a headache for technicians who struggle to make the door work acoustically in situ or in fire safety terms. 

The visual accessibility that glass doors offer works particularly well for meeting rooms and offices, increasing the impression of space and reducing the need for artificial lighting. But providing an effective acoustic rating for a glass door requires an effective acoustic seal, a challenge on glass doors.

The Norseal range of seals for glass doors provide an effective unobtrusive acoustic sealing for standard single swing glass doors. For sliding doors and automatic sliding doors, we can provide a range of acoustic solutions that are also suitable for fire rated, smoke rated and mobility compliant glass doors.

Central to that Norseal range is the Schall-Ex® GS-H8/12 automatic drop seal, suitable for commercial grade doors with a glass thickness ranging from 8mm - 12mm. It is available in sleek silver anodised aluminium or stainless steel finish aluminium to match most glass door hardware and has a single actuation mechanism and a self-extinguishing silicone seal. 

Importantly, it can achieve sound reduction up to 55dBRw making it perfect for offices, conference spaces, hotels, and residential spaces. It provides smoke and draft protection as well as giving the best possible acoustic performance for the glass door. A version is also available for retro fit to existing doors.

For more information on Norseal’s comprehensive range of fire, smoke, acoustic and weather seals, specifiers can visit www.norseal.co.uk or phone 01661 830088.
