Laminated Glass Reduces Noise Transmission

Wednesday, September 12, 2012
If you're looking for some sanctuary from the everyday hustle and bustle, you need look no further than your own home. However, noise from the outside, such as sirens, trains, and noisy neighbors, can interrupt your quest for peace and quiet. Learn how laminated windows decrease outside noise and offer solitude.

Cutting edge treatments create thicker glass

High-performance laminated windows reduce noise while offering increased home security and energy efficiency. Laminated glass is formed by adding a transparent layer of polyvinyl butyral. This technique makes the glass thicker and is highly effective for cutting down noise transmission. Some windows use argon or krypton gas, harmless gasses found in our atmosphere, in between panes to increase window density and absorb sound. A leader in the replacement window and door industry, FAS Windows & Doors carries several product lines offering noise reduction glass such as Andersen, PGT, Gorell, and Simonton.

From Our Customers

I've checked with other people who used FAS and they had good experiences with them, so I got windows, doors, and sliding glass doors from them. I had lots of weird-sized entrances, like in an old house, and I was able to customize my order. It was great and very easy with the sales rep. He walked me through all the products and the cost and helped me figure out what makes sense. Then he checked in and made sure everything was going well. The installation team got the work done fast and were super neat. And the products I got are fantastic.
