Noise pollution is a growing environmental concern and nuisance, especially in urban areas. Even the background noise of 70 decibels caused by outside traffic can cause disturbance and stress over a continued period of time. Acoustic glass technologies have been developed to combat levels of unwanted noise, whether it be for a translator’s booth, a house located near a busy road or an office next to the airport.
Acoustic insulation is very important to create a space where sound does not hinder concentration and does not add to the day-to-day stresses experienced at work.
You can keep the workplace at a sensible noise level so you are able to create an environment with less outside influences creating a more tranquil space.
How it Works
Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB). A comfortable sound level is around 35dB in daytime and 30dB at night. Acoustically insulating glass cuts out excess sound and the harmful effects of noise and is particularly effective in buildings near to high streets, urban traffic, motorways, train stations and airports.
The acoustic glass within a double-glazed unit comprises a special interlayer which acts as a dampening core to prevent sound frequencies from vibrating from one pane of glass to the other. This absorbs and weakens sound energy, helping to act as a barrier to noise.
This plastic interlayer also has the additional safety and security properties of laminated glass.
