Noise pollution is a common problem, especially if you are living close to busy roads, train lines or near airports. Windows tend to be one of the main reasons why noise pollution enters a building.
Unlike walls and ceilings, that seem to block out and typically absorb any soundwaves, glass from windows allow more sound vibrations to pass through and enter the home. So, how can you reduce noise pollution coming in through your windows?
Read below to discover our stunning Internorm products.
Sound Reducing Windows
To reduce the amount of noise pollution that enters your home, its important to create a significant barrier between yourself and the loud sounds. Regarding windows, this can be done in three ways:
- Adding a gap between the window panes
- Making your glazing thicker
- Soundproofing glass
One key way of reducing noise pollution coming into your home is triple glazing. Triple glazing can create a larger gap between each pane, alongside adding an extra pane to allow the sound to travel further before entering your home. This can act as a better sound barrier rather than double glazing due to its thickness and extra gas between the glass.
