By the middle of 2008, IDEAL was ready with the next step in product development. By technical modification of its design and further addition of high-end acoustic linings & heavy-duty seals, IDEAL Acoustic Doors were launched. Prior to commercial launching, this product also underwent routine quality control procedures and acoustic tests to ISO 140-3: 1995 & ASTM E 90-04 at PSB (Singapore) - Part of world-wide TUV-SUD Material Testing and Standardization network.

Results of these tests were very encouraging as IDEAL Acoustic Doors attained maximum acoustic rating of STC 44 dB. As these doors were already tested for fire rating up to 120 minutes it can be stated with confidence that IDEAL High performance mineral core doors are the only locally manufactured doors offering combined fire & acoustic rating to this extent.
