A combination of Lorient’s acoustic, smoke and fire seals has been installed at the Young Vic theatre in London.

Doors at the venue were required to achieve an acoustic rating of 35dBRw, both to enable the sound in the auditorium to be amplified without disturbing the rest of the building, and also to prevent noise from outside disturbing performances. The high-performance acoustic doors were fitted with an integrated sealing system, incorporating Lorient’s acoustic and smoke perimeter seal, a plain fire seal and the IS 8010 automatic threshold seal. This selection of Lorient seals was also installed throughout the rehearsal areas, changing rooms and around the public spaces, providing a practical solution for acoustic, smoke and fire containment, to meet the requirements of Approved Documents B and E.
