Tyled doors

Does anyone know the origin of the term " to type the doors" which means that people are stopped from entering the house during Executive session.

To "tyle" doors is to "make soundproof" the doors.

It refers to "corking" (common cork is a sound-absorbing material).

A tyler is a door-keeper.

The term supposedly comes from the Masonic organization, where their reputation for secrecy is proverbial.
