Following a highly successful period of fire and acoustic testing, Moralt doorblanks, which are distributed exclusively in the UK by James Latham, can now be fitted with Norsound seals.
This means that for the first time, door manufacturers can now offer an alternative seal, lowering the overall cost of the whole door set, bringing it more in line with competitors.
Whether in a domestic or commercial environment, door assemblies are an integral and necessary part of any building and the gaps around the perimeter of the door are an essential part of ensuring that it can open and close efficiently.
But these gaps also provide a point of weakness, allowing smoke, ﬁre and sound to pass through, plus the buildings heat can be lost, wasting energy. Seals are therefore a critical part of the assembly, providing a complete and continuous barrier around the door when it is closed to protect against these potential hazards.
Dan Jones from Norsound commented, This is great news for the market and its a win-win situation, not only for the door manufacturers themselves but also their customers, the end users. It means that while having the reassurance of stringent industry testing to ensure optimum performance, reliability and safety, and the peace of mind that brings, they can now also be a lot more competitive using Norsound seals.
