How we developed a sound-reducing glass sliding door
By the time this blog post is published (October 2022), we are only a few weeks away from launching a product that we know is eagerly awaited by the market - Decibel Sliding Door. We have followed the work on the door and talked to the creators how it came to be, from idea to article number.
