Noise Control – Acoustic Glass
Noise pollution is a serious issue, particularly when living in an area with high levels of air traffic or busy roads. Too much noise can be damaging to health (increased stress, disrupted sleep) and can hinder academic learning and concentration.
Acoustically insulating glazing can help keep noise outside so you can enjoy your living space in peace and quiet.
How does it work
Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB). A comfortable sound level is around 35dB in daytime and 30dB at night.
Acoustically insulating glass cuts out excess sound and the harmful effects of noise and is particularly effective in buildings near to high streets, urban traffic, motorways, train stations and airports.
The acoustic glass within a double-glazed unit comprises a special interlayer which acts as a dampening core to prevent sound frequencies from vibrating from one pane of glass to the other.
This absorbs and weakens sound energy, helping to act as a barrier to noise.
This plastic interlayer also has the additional safety and security properties of laminated glass.
Acoustic insulation is very important to create a space where sound does not hinder concentration and does not add to the day-to-day stresses experienced at work.
You can keep the workplace at a sensible noise level so you are able to create an environment with less outside influences creating a more tranquil space.
Reduce impact noise, particularly on roof lanterns when it is raining.
Acoustic glass can be combined with many other products for multi-functional glazing, such as thermal insulation, solar control, low-maintenance and decorative glass.
