Presents the results of a series of tests to evaluate sound transmission through a double door system (two doors with an airspace between). The main purpose of these tests was to establish that such a system using conventional door panels can provide substantial noise reduction. The secondary goal of the series was to evaluate typical office doors, including the effect of minor modifications that could increase the noise reduction provided by the door system.
