We Live in a Noisy World…
There are more cars and trucks on the road, more planes, beach noise, more people with things that make noise – lawn mowers, leaf blowers, car stereos, motorcycles, car alarms. Our sleep is disturbed by barking dogs and wailing sirens. It’s not just annoying. Noise pollution can be bad for your health.
Reduce the noise inside a building to acceptable levels without sacrificing daylight. No matter where it originates, from the beach, aircraft, street traffic, noise is all around. Future trend research suggests that traffic and noise in general will only get worse. The careful and considered selection of glass can be crucial in helping to reduce noise level and meet noise requirements.

How it works
The highest noise insulation is achieved using an acoustic laminated glass.
Glass controls noise by:
- Reflecting the noise back towards the source, and
- Absorbing the noise energy within the glass.
- We can improve the sound insulation of glass in different ways – increasing the thickness of the pane, using laminated glass on its own or within an Insulating Glass Unit (the larger the gap between the panes, the better the insulation).
The best performance is however obtained when using an acoustic laminated glass such, and for the highest noise insulation, within an Insulating Glass Unit.
Our range of sound insulating laminated safety glass, insulating glass unit offer the highest sound insulation. The desired acoustic performance can be achieved through various product combinations, depending on the specific noise reduction required.
Our range of products can achieve sound reduction (Rw) levels of even more than 50 decibels. They can also be combined with other glass products for a multi-functional noise-reduction monolithic glass or a multi-functional noise-reduction insulating glass unit, providing additional benefits such as thermal insulation, solar control, self-cleaning, etc…
