Noise Disturbs The Peace
Highly effective dual compression gaskets cause tightness of windows and doors, leading to excellent sound insulation!
Whether it’s from traffic, aircraft, trains, factories or even neighbours, unwanted noise can spoil the comfort of your home.
Vue Windows have been designed with acoustic performance in mind and come standard with features such as double silicon compression seals, multi-chambered profiles and all windows and doors can be double glazed. With the right glass combinations sound reduction of up 44dB is achievable.
The facts about noise, windows and sound proofing
As a general rule, increasing mass will improve sound insulation. Brick and concrete walls have stronger sound insulating values because they are of greater mass when compared to glass used in windows. We need windows to see through, to provide natural daylight and enhance a buildings look and appeal, the need for greater sound control when using windows becomes more important.
Sound originates from something that vibrates which generates changes in air pressure. FREQUENCY is used to refer to the number of vibrations or changes in air pressure per second.
