Noise Pollution and Security Screen Doors: What You Need to Know

Noise pollution is a serious issue, and it's important to take the necessary steps to protect your home from excessive sound. Installing a security screen door in an area with high levels of traffic noise or other noise pollution sources requires special considerations. Understanding the relationship between sound pressure and sound power is essential to predict what noise problems will be created when certain sound sources are placed in work environments. As a rule, doubling the sound power increases the noise level by 3 dB.

Shock absorbing material can be added to either side of the metal surface to reduce the noise level. When it comes to exterior doors, composite doors are a great option for protecting your home from thieves and blocking more noise than other types of doors, such as PVC doors. Synergistic ototoxic effects have also been reported with noise with asphyxiants (such as carbon monoxide) and metals (such as lead). Workers are more likely to keep the door closed if they perceive that the environment inside the cabin is at least as comfortable as outside the cabin.

To reduce the noise level, manufacturers can install anti-vibration brackets and apply a self-adhesive shock absorber sheet to the sheet metal surfaces of the equipment. Internally, it's important to use solid doors to prevent noise from spreading around the house. In general, workers use a staff enclosure more effectively (keeping the door closed to avoid noise) when the enclosure provides warm air (heated or air conditioned depending on the season) and a sense of air movement inside. A worker can bend a piece of metal by hitting it with a hammer and applying a large amount of force for a short period of time or applying the same force with pliers for a longer period of time, thus reducing noise.
