Energy Efficiency Hybrid
In busy, urban environments, noise is constant. There is an increasing need to reduce unwanted noise from road traffic, trains and aircraft to create a more comfortable living environment, promote a healthier sleep, reduce stress, and improve concentration. By choosing an appropriate glass for your specific location, you can significantly reduce the amount of ambient noise that penetrates your home.
Where energy efficiency and
acoustics are both required, double
glazing can be used to reduce noise.
The wider the space between the
two sheets of glass, the greater
the sound improvement. Sound
Transmission Class is a single number
rating for glass’s efficiency in reducing
noise transmission. Expressed in
decibels, the larger the number,
the greater the sound reduction.
The further sound has to travel
through glass, the more likely it is to
dampen the sound waves. So thicker
glass is often the best for reducing
low frequency sounds like traffic
and neighbourhood noise.
Featuring two panes of glass with
an interlayer between them,
laminated glass dampens more
vibrations than single glazed glass.
Even though laminated glass is
constructed using two panes of
glass, it’s virtually indistinguishable
from ordinary glass. An acoustic
laminate with a special sound
dampening interlayer is also
available, providing the sound
dampening properties of much
thicker glass. Laminated glass can
be used for security, noise control
and UV reduction.
