Can Sliding Doors Be Soundproof?

Young woman with a hearing disorder or hearing loss cupping her hand behind her ear with her head turned aside to try and amplify and channel the available sound to her ear drumWindows and doors are a part of a home’s envelope. Windows aid in ventilating the space and doors allow homeowners to move in and out freely. 

Just like walls have insulation, to help regulate the interior temperature and reduce noise, a door can provide similar functions. However, the materials it uses are vastly different, and also why soundproofing a sliding glass door is more achievable than the traditional hinged door. 

Depending on where you live, it is fairly unrealistic to expect your home not to be subject to outside noises--i.e. noise pollution. 

By installing the right kind of sliding doors, you can improve your home’s insulation and create a more soundproof home in addition to several other benefits, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Enhanced security

This means choosing impact glass sliding door solutions that are made of multiple, thick layers that can reduce outside noise infiltration up to 40%.
