Concrete Filled Acoustical Door

This 850,000 lb., 40’ x 60’ x 2’ concrete filled acoustical door was built for the aerospace industry and was a combination of a sliding door and a swing door.  While the opening was 40 feet, there was only 30 feet of interior space available to slide the door open, so a swing door had to fill the other 10 feet.  Below is the progression of the project.
