From large cities to small towns, noise pollution is one of the most troublesome problems that often disrupts sleep or concentration. The different processing that glass can undergo due to its versatility, however, allows us to insulate an environment and make it comfortable at any time thanks to the elimination of sound for the total safety and comfort of any activity.
Noise-control glass can be applied both in the workplace and in home environments according to requirements. Their sound absorption perfectly combines with the need for protection.
Noise-control glass, is considered safety glass because the treatments they are subject to make them resistant to break-ins. Depending on the variation in the thickness of the sheets, in the interlayer and in processing to which we submit them, they guarantee the desired performance.
The choice of the type of glass to be used by our customers takes place during the design phase. Our partners interface with specialised personnel who are trained to provide useful technical information. For instance, regarding the intensity of noises that, in homes, must not exceed 40 decibels. If we imagine that the building overlooks a busy street, the level of intensity of the noise pollution in some cases can be double. Therefore, the acoustic impact limits activities and creates a disturbance that can be eliminated in different ways.
Our solutions include:
- Stratified glass: The sheets are stratified to increase their thickness and, consequently, to facilitate acoustic insulation. Two or more sheets are joined by a sheet of plastic material. This is a special PVB that guarantees a very high performance in reducing noise pollution because it is more yielding than normal PVB. This enables it to increase its resistance and better absorb the vibrations coming from external environments.
- Sound-absorbing glass: Thanks to their insulating power, they reduce the intensity of the sound we perceive.
- Insulating glass (or double glazing): Depending on their thickness, the acoustic insulation increases further, resulting in a difference between the external and the internal noise of more than 40 decibels.
In the case of insulating glass, the sound-absorbing sheets are able to guarantee other types of performances as well. From the containment of sunlight to energy savings with low emissivity, also including the maximum security that is obtained through the armouring procedure.
