Will an openable uPVC door lead to better sound insulation over the sliding door?
Why listen to VEKA professionals before installation?

Noise cancellation technique for a door
- Source of sound 100 decibel
- Ideal door position to resist the sound waves
- Room inside receives only 55 decibels
- Calculated frequency of sound has to be measured before installation
There are several kinds of noise that we can be affected by, and windows and doors are the best ways to cancel the disturbance. When softer materials are used, sound energy enters a room. Hard surfaced tiles will ensure that the disturbance is reduced. Similar principles are applied when it comes to soundproofing a door or window. In the case of a sliding window, the transmission or movement of sound happens through a medium or connection.
Prevention is done by identifying the gaps where the clatter is likely to enter. There are products and materials that absorb the sound. Whenever it (the sound of traffic or strong winds) comes in contact with the door, the motion results in vibrations. The louder the sound, the greater the vibration on the rattling door or window. Hence, resistance is essential to bring closure and peace inside.
Does the openable uPVC door give a better performance?
The fact that uPVC material is being added gives the homeowner relief in the choice of such a door. It adds all the features that are required to get peace. Even offices in commercial areas can opt for it, as sound has the ability to travel in various ways inside. While ceilings and floors also contribute to noise levels, doors and windows are the main culprits.
To identify the elements that allow sound waves to escape, we look at the existing fixtures.
You can also block sound from going outside if you are a musician, so that others do not get disturbed outside.
Blocking is also used to keep the temperature inside balanced. A hollow door has to be replaced. If necessary, gaskets have to be fixed. If it is sliding, then the air gaps have to be tightened. Using a Laminated glass or double-glass seal will absorb the noise as it is insulated.
If you live in the city, the need for insulated doors has become a necessity, without which your physical and mental health will be affected. Sleep disorders and performance anxiety at work are common due to the continuous clatter in the environment. If you are exposed to more than 80 decibels daily, it could be detrimental to your overall health. It impacts sleep cycles and, in some cases, results in hearing loss. By installing our products, the decibel levels are reduced by 95% (perception level of human ear). The air vacuum chambers trap the sound waves and also improve thermal efficiency.
