Understanding Acoustic Glazing

Specifying the best glass for noise reduction

The ability to control external sounds in our homes, workplaces, hospitals and schools has gained importance due to modern lifestyles and the close proximity of these buildings to highways, airports, construction sites and industry. Among the many building materials and products that make up a structure, windows and doors have a big impact on how well the home or building is insulated from outside noise. With the wide range of glazing solutions available, understanding the differences between single-glazing, multi-layered glazing, laminated glass and high-performance acoustic glazing is essential.  

Understanding Acoustic Glazing : Specifying the best glass for noise reduction explores the role of glazing in acoustic design and how different types of glazing products compare in terms of sound reduction performance. We highlight what makes acoustic glass a high-performance solution distinct from other forms of glazing. We also look at common misconceptions surrounding acoustic glass.
