Our sister company and main manufacturing plant, Zero International in The Bronx, N.Y., recently announced that its acoustical gasketing played a key role in the advanced sound control engineering for Studio 360, a 5.1 mix studio located in Caracas, Venezuela, that recently earned Dolby certification.
Structural door design by acoustical consultant José Miguel Herrera integrated Zero’s adjustable head-and-jamb gasketing 170AA, rabbeted threshold 564A and surface-mounted automatic door bottom 361AA, along with continuous hinge system 910 to achieve STC-55 performance.
The opening of Studio 360 is credited with streamlining post-production audio for local filmmakers along with eliminating the time and travel costs of using facilities in neighbouring countries. The studio’s audio performance exceeds international Dolby standards.
Zero’s acoustical gasketing systems are designed to provide a complete, uninterrupted and air-tight seal around head, jambs and threshold, which is critical to achieving highest STC performance required for sound studios and other demanding applications. They also provide adjusting features to easily restore sound-tight seals eliminating any gaps caused by door misalignment, which often occur over time as buildings shift and settle and doors cycle through changes in temperature and humidity.
