Hotel acoustics: slept like a baby, never heard a thing…
Nothing spoils a guest experience like a noisy room or broken sleep. If guests are regularly disturbed by corridor noise from late arrivals or early departures, then not even the best buffet breakfast in town will ensure repeat business or encourage guest loyalty.
This is why the West Hotel on Sussex Street, Sydney, looked to Raven to supply its acoustic door sealing systems, providing an effective, proven barrier to airborne sound while increasing the acoustic performance of the door assembly.
Raven acoustic seals help isolate buildings from external noise, such as heavy traffic and nearby railways or airports. They also help to isolate rooms from internal noise within a building, such as loud machinery, theatres, crèches, cinemas, doctors’ surgeries, stairwells, passageways, interconnecting guest rooms or adjoining apartments. Raven sealing systems also help to prevent toxic smoke from entering a room or corridor in the case of a fire emergency.
Raven acoustic sealing systems, when used with a suitable door assembly, can achieve acoustic performance ratings over 30Rw on standard solid core doors and up to Rw43 on 35-millimetre acoustic proprietary doors. Even higher ratings of up to Rw52 have been certified on heavier, acoustically-designed doors.
However, noise pollution is not just a problem in hotels and apartments; it also affects commercial buildings that are close to busy roads, train stations, airports or nearby construction sites.
A small capital investment in upgrading existing doors with Raven acoustic smoke seals will bring about a quick and lasting return on your project while ensuring NCC compliance and the comfort and safety of the occupants. Raven door and window sealing systems are quality engineered to deliver the very best in acoustic and thermal insulation. They also provide the building industry with the most proven and cost-effective sealing systems money can buy – which is really worth making a noise about!
