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.

  • Glazing Range
  • Double glazing

    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.


    Thick glass

    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.


    Laminated glass

    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.
