How does acoustic glass work?

The best way to absorb sound is by using mass, meaning the thicker the glass, the more sound that is absorbed. Acoustic glass is created by combining two layers of annealed glass and laminating them with a special acoustically absorbent plastic, known as Polyvinyl Butyral, in between, giving the appearance of a single pane of glass. Despite looking like a single pane of glass, it is considerably thicker and, therefore, keeps out much more outside noise than standard glass. With our acoustic glass, we’re able to reduce outside by up to 42dB.

Super soundproofing for a peaceful living space

World Health Organisation guidelines recommend that no more than 40dB of sound should be heard at night. In order for sound levels to be acceptable in general living areas, they should also stay below 50dB. However, busy roads measure about 70dB. Not only will this disturb sleep but it can also lead to elevated blood pressure and other health problems. With our acoustic glass, however, that noisy 70dB sound can be reduced to a peaceful 28dB, which is about as loud as a whisper!
