Due to our welded construction method, ArmRLite is able to provide a much larger array of glass types than commonly seen in our industry. Sound resistant glazing is a specialized glass that inhibits the transmittance of sound and can be accommodated within our welded aluminum overhead doors. ArmRLite’s Acoustical Glass has a maximum STC 35. Ideal for homes, businesses, conference rooms, recording studios, lecture halls, music venues, restaurants, and applications where the reduction of sound transmittance through an aluminum and glass sectional door is needed.
Polyurethane Foam Filled Frame
Standard ArmRLite aluminum frames are comprised of 4-sided hollow extrusions. For the Acoustical Package, all cavities of our tubular rails and stiles are injected with polyurethane foam creating a solid product. Polyurethane foam filled rails and stiles act as a sound barrier, reducing the amount of transmitted sound through our aluminum frame overhead doors while also providing insulation benefits.
