We have launched a new user enhancement on our acoustic seal website today - the "quick view" feature!

This new addition to the product item drop down menu will allow you to see a small popup summary of the product, including an image, description and downloadable content.

The quick view option will be useful for users who may not necessarily need to view the full product page, or are just browsing within a particular acoustic door seal category.

Sound advice for Darlington Memorial Hospital

February 21, 2014 14:04 by Neil S

Darlington Memorial Hospital opened in 1933 (local fact - the same year that Sir Bobby Robson was born!) and now serves a population of nearly 600,000 people.

Its Haematology and Oncology ward provides critical support to a large number of patients throughout the North-East and was, until recently, in need of major refurbishment.

Prior to the commencement of this 8 week-long project, Norsound were tasked to provide appropriate acoustic seal solutions for a range of new, bespoke doors.

Norsound provided a complete door seal solution utilising the most innovative products from their acoustic door seal range.

Discreet, yet highly effective, the acoustic door seals were easily incorporated into the proposed doorset designs and now fully compliment the clean, contemporary look of the modern hospital ward.
