Enfield Speciality Doors a hit for A-list London recording studio

  • 9 Jun 2023

A brand-new, high-end recording studio in East London features bespoke acoustic doors from specialist manufacturer Enfield Speciality Doors.

The doors will provide exceptional acoustic performance while delivering on fire safety, security, and style at Qube East, which counts some of the country’s biggest A-list musicians and producers as customers and members.

Located in Wood Wharf, adjacent to Canary Wharf, Qube East has 24 studios for recording, production, DJ, rehearsal, podcast and video recording plus a members-only bar.

The design and fit-out of the new shell build was a collaborative project between KVIST Interior Design, Sustainable Acoustics, contractor Trabur, Project Manager Graham Moreton of Stream Properties and the client, The Qube – all of whom had worked with Enfield Speciality Doors before or had been referred to them.

Enfield Speciality Doors was asked to supply 55 door assemblies for the project.

For corridor doors which lead to studios, a back-to-back door, or ‘room-within-a-room’ system was installed to enhance the sound protection qualities of the Quiet Mark-accredited doors, and to maintain acoustic separation between the shells. 35dB doors were fitted on the outside and 42dB doors on the inside to further minimise noise leakage between rooms. 


All of the doors were manufactured with a 10mm card to conceal the lippings and primed ready for painting on site. 

Dan Murphy, the Project Manager at Trabur, says: “The doors were as key as every other aspect on the Qube East project and although the acoustic specification was very high, the doors Enfield Speciality Doors produced were brilliant – we were really happy with them. They were also pre-hung and primed, saving time onsite.”

Christine Skaar, of KVIST Interior Design, adds: “The Enfield Speciality Doors team was really responsive to work with, giving us advice at the specification stage, dropping off samples and providing first class tech support. It’s these things that make a difference.”

James Saunders, Managing Director of Enfield Speciality Doors, comments: “With this programme, we showed we’re in tune with the needs of the contractors and design agencies we work with, helping them deliver the vision for their client – whatever the specification. The result of that collaborative process is a very impressive project. 

“Our range of acoustic doors can go as high as 48dB for a single door configuration or 54dB on a back-to-back configuration, which is unique to the market.”
