Windows to Reduce Noise
Many people think that you can reduce noise from outside by adding an extra glazing layer to your windows. This is not the best solution, and in some cases can make noise problems worse – the additional layer of glass can end up just being an extra layer of material which can vibrate and cause noise.
The best solution to your noise problem at home is to use our special acoustic glass. This is a double-glazed unit which sandwiches a special layer of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) in between two layers of glass. This combined with an optimised frame design fitted by our skilled team, combines to interrupt the soundwave and this reduces the decibel levels. Our Shield Protection sound reduction glass windows will provide a further 20% reduction in decibel levels compared to A-rated sealed unit.
Acoustic Glass FAQS
Why not just use triple glazing?
Noise pollution is a big problem, especially in busy towns and cities. Triple glazing can have some success in reducing noise, however because it is produced with an extra layer of glass, it can end up just exacerbating the vibrations from external noise!
What is acoustic glazing?
Our special acoustic glass is made up of 3 parts – 2 layers of glass which sandwich a layer of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) which really helps to minimise external noise.
