Noise Reduction Benefits

When designing, building, or making changes of use to properties, it is vital to look at the local topography to ascertain the types of prevailing noise that can affect habitable dwellings.

The World Health Organisation knows that sleep disturbance occurs when the noise in a bedroom is above 30dB and that in other habitable areas (such as a lounge and dining room) it should not be above 35dB. In urbanised areas traffic noise is generally 70-80dB.

There are many important factors to take into account before deciding upon the introduction of secondary glazing. Most will say that “all that matters is the glass thickness in the glazing systems and the air gaps between them, which form the insulating medium.” Whilst this is true in respect that simple physics informs us that these 2 factors are very important, there is so much more to consider, for example;

  • What about building perspective and how sound pressure waves impact upon it?
  • What is the type of noise source we are trying to deal with?
  • Is it high or low frequency?

It may be some areas of your home need acoustic glass which costs more money, but that others do not.

The layout and furnishings in your room can also affect the amount or type of glazing systems you adopt. If there are minimalistic and solid wood floors, we all know sound travels and echoes around more easily!

We are all differently affected by noise and although testing laboratories and machines can give us data and numbers, we are all individual and it is our own brain, hearing mechanisms and sensitivities that are being put to the test ultimately.
