I'm looking for example specs for "elephant doors." Elephant doors are large doors, similar in size to those on a small aircraft hangar, that are acoustically rated and are used for large openings into a sound stage. Some are steel assemblies. Some are cast concrete panels mounted on rails (mass counts in sound control).

Please e-mail me directly or respond in this discussion thread, please.

Thank you for the leads. "Elephant door" is a slang term used to describe acoustically-rated doors for large openings.
