Laminated Glass Reduces Noise Transmission

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.
