Noise Protection IGU

Neigher the color nor the coating of the glass have any effect on its noise protecting qualities. What matters is the following:

  • Use of laminated glass.
  • Use of tripple glazed insulating units.
  • Use of glass with different thickness (asymmetry).
  • Increasing the overall thickness of the insulating glass unit.

Advantages:

  • Can be combined with energy saving or solar protecting glass and acquire high insulating qualities overall.

Disadvantages:

  • Higher price.
