We now live in an ever increasingly compact society which operates around the clock, 7 days a week. This unwanted noise impacts on our homes and work life, and without soundproofing often results in interrupted sleep and increased stress which affects concentration and creativity.
Not all noise is unwanted, however, noise becomes a nuisance when it cannot be controlled. Aircraft passing overhead, the drone of traffic, schools, building works and railways all play their part, often cumulatively. So soundproofing windows and doors can often be the best solution.
Your home is a place to sleep, rest and unwind although often that is not the case due to invasive external noise. One way to help is to reduce the noise entering through single glazed poorly fitting windows by using a three step soundproofing process.
Two sheets of glass are bonded together with a centre layer of acoustic PVB (polyvinyl butyral) to form a clear laminate to provide excellent airborne sound insulation. Available in various thicknesses it may be used in both single and double glazed applications. It is by default a security / safety glass and absorbs 99% of ultra-violet radiation thereby reducing fading of furniture and fabrics. Further information available here :
The windows, through their noise and draught reduction, have made a material difference to our sleep, heating bills and more generally the quality of our lives.
I have been oversleeping, the soundproofing really works!
