Insulating Glass Unit for acoustic insulation with different sound
Urban lifestyle involves high traffic noise that average around 80-85 decibels.
Beneficially, glass has emerged as an efficient sound insulator to curb
noise pollution and in turn, stress. The purpose of any glass façade
is to provide a 30-40dB barrier in most cases.
Tone Glass, specially designed Acoustic Insulating Glass Unit is ideally
suited for noise control. With the help of Tone Glass, sound attenuations
of up to 50dB can be achieved. The units could be configured with high performance
glasses to achieve thermal insulation with acoustic insulation for special
requirements. In addition, the performance can be optimized for specific
frequency bands. Tone Glass with laminated glass provides safety, security,
fading control and acoustic insulation.
Gas filled in the cavity of Tone Glass improves its acoustic insulation
performance over a wider range of sound frequencies. While configuring glass
for acoustic insulation, it is to be remembered that the other barrier materials
– the surrounding walls or partitions, the framing materials, vibrations
transmitted through structural members, location of the sound source, and
the type of sound and its direction, secondary reflections – all play
an important role in designing an optimum sound insulation solution.
