The IAC Noise-Lock® sound control doors has made a significant contribution to the nation’s first ever “green”independent film studio facility, Second Line Stages. Second Line States was built to comply with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver certification standard, which is awarded to structures that achieve superior environmental performance.
IAC Noise-Lock® doors were installed because of their guaranteed in-field noise reduction. The challenge for the door design was full glass vision panels and double leaf configurations. “More than half of the door is glass with no compromise to the acoustic isolation of the assembly,” according to Craig D’Anna, Business Manager for the Architectural Group at IAC America.
IAC’s line of Noise-Lock® doors recently learned a new song.
