Why Choosing Acoustic Glass is Right for You
For decades we have been informed of the negative effects of exposure to constant noise and the health problems that may result from this. However, it is a fact that job opportunities are more commonly available in busy cities and, if you don’t want to commute, living centrally may be the best option.
Although there are many benefits of living in the centre of a city, the noise pollution can be trying to say the least. That’s where acoustic glass comes in.
What is Acoustic Glass?
Acoustic glass is a form of window glazing that reflects noise back to the source, rather than allowing it to enter your home. Acoustic glass is where two or more sheets of glass are bonded together to help weaken the sound as it travels through the glass. This helps to significantly reduce the problem of noise pollution, making your home quieter even in the busy city centre!
How Does It Work?
Acoustic glass achieves effective noise insulation by reflecting the noise back to the source (ie: traffic) and absorbing the noise energy within the glass so that it does not pass through into the house.
The effective sound insulation of acoustic glass can be improved by simply increasing the thickness of the glass panes or using laminated glass.
Who Does Acoustic Glass Benefit?
Acoustic glass is recommended for properties situated in busy locations where surrounding noise of traffic or crowds may be a concern. What’s more, due to the bonded layer of glass, acoustic glass will hold in place even if it breaks. This is ideal if your window is damaged as it won’t shatter all over the floor. Other benefits of acoustic glass include:
- Improved acoustic performance
- Sound control
- Impact safety rating
- Can fit any window design/style
- Increases safety and security (glass will not break easily)
- Reduces heat loss
- Improves energy efficiency
Acoustic glass is extremely beneficial for homeowners living in noisy locations. If you’ve been experiencing a lot of noise around your property and you value a quiet life, acoustic glass could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

Types of Noise Pollution
Noise pollution is a subjective term which describes the sounds a person does not want to pick up. These could be sounds that are too loud, unpleasant, or disturbing general peace. Unfortunately, living in an urban environment can heighten the possibility of noise pollution, with many people experiencing annoying or even harmful levels of noise pollution on a regular basis.
The common causes of noise pollution are as follows!
