Acoustic Glass

Windows, redefined.

Noise Reduction & Sound Insulating Glazing

The world without acoustic glass is a noisy place, with more and more people crammed closer together and surrounded by noisy transport systems noise pollution is a growing environmental concern and nuisance, especially in urban areas. Even the background noise caused by outside traffic, trains or airplanes can cause disturbance and stress over a continued period of time.

At acceptable levels, outside noise often reaches around 35 decibels. Traffic can cause a dramatic increase in noise levels and reach around 70 dBs; Living under a flight path can mean excesses of 90 dBs, whilst near landing aircraft noise pollution can spike to well over 100 dBs.

With our desire for natural light and to be in touch with our surroundings, large expanses of glass have become more popular as it gives good light and vision in our interior spaces. However, normal glass is not a particularly good noise insulator, which is why acoustic glass technologies have been developed to combat levels of unwanted noise.

Installation of acoustic glass can cut noise disturbance significantly, meaning that incessant noise of cars, trains or planes needn't echo through your house any more. 

Acoustic Glass Defined

Acoustic glass consists of two or more sheets of glass, bonded together with one or more acoustic interlayers: Each pane of glass in a noise reduction window or door is laminated with a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), forming a strong hydrocarbon bond with the glazing unit, this improves acoustic attenuation by reducing the elasticity of the glass and providing an extra layer of noise reduction and dampening, weakening the sound as it travels through the glass.

The Benefits of Acoustic Glass

Acoustic glass considerably reduces outside noise, especially near busy areas such as motorways, train lines and airports. When used in overhead or roof glazing, noise reduction window also provides insulation from rain impact noise. It can be used for interior sound insulation needs, such as office partitions and meeting rooms.

In addition, acoustic laminated glazing dramatically increases the strength of the glazing providing additional security as well as improved energy efficiency.

At Evolution we offer an acoustic glass option for both our Storm and Flush window ranges, which can reduce the external noise levels by up to 30%. If you value a peaceful life from external noise, this option is definitely worth considering.
