Double Glaze for Double Noise Reduction


The increasing hustle and bustle, traffic, aircraft, machinery, appliances, television and music systems – sound comes at us from everywhere, much of it, unwanted. But with the correct selection of glass and construction method, achieving a more peaceful environment is possible.

There are a number different ways that noise travels through windows. These can include; vibrations from the outside conducting noise through the window which increases internal noise, air infiltration between window joints, as well poor seals contribute to noise seeping into your home or building.

Double-glazing is one of the simplest yet most effective ways to soundproof windows and solve your noise problems. Essentially, double-glazing is an add-on glazing system fitted on the inside of your windows, which in turn acts to reduce outside noise. By fitting a new window system that have no air gaps can help reduce noise by up to 75 percent.
