Enjoy enhanced acoustic insulation with Clearview secondary glazing.
Unwanted noise is a problem in many homes and commercial buildings, particularly in towns and cities and period properties with original single glazing. Traffic, street and aircraft noise adversely affect living and working environments, causing unwanted stress, a lack of concentration and worse.
Secondary glazing is the most effective solution for reducing intrusive noise through glazing. Secondary glazing reveal fix frame formats are attached to the side wall of the window reveal rather than to the face of the primary window, so the secondary unit can be positioned away from the primary window for optimum sound insulation. The wider the gap, the better the sound insulation – see the Acoustic Performance table. With the right specification of secondary glazing and acoustic glass, a reduction in excess of 50 decibels can be achieved, which can be 5 x times that of double or triple glazing (that’s a reduction of almost 80% of the noise entering a room). A reveal fix is the option to select when there isn’t sufficient frame on the primary window to attach the secondary glazing unit.
