Acoustic Glass Windows

AKINCO Soundproof windows and doors reduce noise pollution by dissipating the sound wave and causing it to lose power. This is achieved by using materials that will absorb and reflect the pressure. Any material can do this, but soundproof windows are designed to optimise the natural properties of timber and glass in order to specifically combat noise.2

Soundproof windows work by reflecting, absorbing and dissipating sound waves. A combination of specialised glazing, layered hardwoods, dampeners and finishings reduce the strength of the wave by increasing the density and lowering the elasticity of the materials used in the construction of the window.

A double pane window houses two sheets of glazing separated by a layer of air, or in some cases inert gases like argon and xenon. These gases are poor conductors of heat, and so reduce the amount lost from your property (or entering it). By making sure the gap between the glazing is kept to a minimum, convection currents are minimised, further reducing heat loss.

Each pane of glass in a soundproof window or door is laminated with a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). Forming a strong hydrocarbon bond with the glazing unit, this improves acoustic attenuation by further reducing the elasticity of the glass and providing an extra layer of noise dampening.
