Best Windows For Noise Reduction

Maybe you work nights and it’s important that you get undisturbed sleep, or perhaps you live next to a busy main road. 

Whatever your reason, everyone should be entitled to peace and quiet in their own home, right? 

Tell the outside world that. 

But what impact can your windows have on protecting your home from unwanted noise entering your home? 

Our team has compiled a list of the best windows at reducing outside noise.

 

Double Glazing 

 

If you’re looking to insulate your home from noise, double glazing can offer your home good protection from noise. 

When it comes to soundproofing windows, thicker is better. So, the thicker the two panes of glass used the more protection from noise you will receive.

It is usually the rule that the larger the gap between the two panes of glass, the better the sound insulation. 

Therefore, if your home currently has single glazed windows, upgrading to double glazed windows is likely to help reduce outside noise inside your home.

 

 

Triple Glazing

 

Triple glazing has a slight advantage over double glazing at reducing noise pollution. 

Where double glazing uses 2 panes of glass, triple glazing has 3 panes of glass. As a result of this extra pane, triple glazed windows can offer even further protection from outside noise.

 

 

Acoustic Glass

 

Designed with noise reduction in mind, acoustic glass offers a considerable difference in sound insulation compared to other windows. 

Acoustic glass is made up of laminated glass, a bonded inermal layer and two or more panes of glass that dampens sound and vibrations. 

Sound insulation can be increased depending on the noise reduction needed, by varying the thickness of the panes of glass or adding additional layers of glass.
