How to choose home theatre doors  
Doors are possibly the most important part of soundproofing a home theatre.

What is the purpose of a home theatre door?

The main function of a home theatre door is to completely seal the room from all outside noise and light, isolating the sound from your home theatre system inside the room. The door has to have excellent acoustic properties, and these doors are normally constructed specifically for this purpose.

Obviously, the door has to be able to block out and muffle a tremendous amount of sound. It should also look the part too, helping create a true cinema experience at home. The doors are usually equipped with strips around the outside to seal off any noise and light that might escape through the sides or underneath the door.

These doors are specifically designed for home theatre use, and your home theatre supplier should be able to recommend a good installer for you. You may want to have double doors for that grand entry feel, or two separate sets of doors with an air pocket between them that can further reduce sound. These doors are always hinged; it is not possible to sufficiently seal a sliding door for the purposes of creating a home theatre.What sort of doors are appropriate for home theatre doors?
