Safe and Sound-Free with Norseal

When Marriott International recently undertook a major refurbishment of their stunning London Kensington Hotel, the comfort and safety of their guests was a major consideration in their plans. 

Noise from inside the hotel – particularly from the corridor - is one of the most common causes of complaint from hotel guests, leading to tired and unhappy customers, so effective acoustic insulation of hotel bedroom doors is a vital consideration.

To achieve the correct levels of sound attenuation for its doors, the company used solutions from market-leading specialist seals manufacturer Norseal to ensure that their doors are able to stop the spread of fire, smoke and noise.

Whether you’re travelling for work or for pleasure, getting a good night’s sleep is top of the list for most hotel guests. There’s nothing worse than trying to get some shut-eye and being disturbed by noise from the corridor. 

Marriott International employed Norseal’s NOR810 automatic drop seals during the refurbishment of the London Kensington property to help ensure that noise is not an issue for their guests. Designed with ease of installation in mind, the NOR810 seal features Norseal’s new parallel drop technology, making for better floor contact and smoother operation in everyday use.

Hotel fires have been in the news in recent months. Marriott International fitted Norseal’s Pyroplex fire and smoke intumescent strips around doors during the London Kensington property’s refurbishment to help protect guests from the spread of fire and smoke, should the worst happen.

With a high tack self-adhesive backing, Norseal Pyroplex intumescent strips can easily be cut down for ease of installation. Naturally, the product has been fire tested to standards defined in BS 476: Part 22: 1987 as well as smoke tested in accordance with BS 476: Part 31: 1987.

Cleanliness is another big issue for hotel guests, which is why Norseal Pyroplex intumescent strips are designed to be easy to clean, something that is much appreciated by housekeeping staff.

Part of the European Athmer Group, Norseal is the leading provider of specialist door seal solutions. The company has a long track record of innovation, developing products which meet and exceed the latest industry standards for fire and smoke protection, acoustic properties, accessibility and thermal insulation.

As well as its core range of seals, Norseal supply a wide range of supplementary door products including fire- rated glazing, electrical and plumbing solutions, fire rated ventilation, letter plates, door viewers, threshold plates, weather seals, and finger protection products.
