What is your take on requirement of doors during Covid-19 pandemic?
Covid-19 pandemic has forced people to work from home, where the bedrooms are converted into the makeshift workplace. Furthermore, such remote working/Work From Home is seen as the normal way going forward for a majority at large. Currently, every person in the past five months has observed the high amount of distraction and lapse in concentration due to everyday household noises even with doors shut.
This is because the current door installed at their place allows passage of sound even whilst closed as it was always a panel installed to close the hole in the wall. The true privacy function of a door is fulfilled only when the door provides the privacy of sight + privacy of sound. Sauerland Spanplatte has geared up their customers PAN India to offer the need of the hour solutions by launching Work From Home Doors concept with acoustic ratings from 27 db up to 44 db.
