Acoustic Glass Data Calculator

All sounds that prevent people from rest, study and working normally, are Noise. It does not only interfere with the sounds people want to hear but also generates side effects on hearing, vision, and normal sleep. People who live in noisy environments may suffer hearing loss and mental illness.

On account of the above reasons, noise-proof becomes more and more important when choosing the glass material on windows, doors, and curtain walls.

The noise outside the apartments and houses close to the main road can reach 80db. However, 50db is the maximum accepted noise level for human beings. That means 30db has to be reduced in order to live a normal life.

It is hard for us to know how much DB noise has been blocked during transmission. Fortunately, there are some tools we can use when we choosing the suitable glass types we need.

Insulating acoustical data, Triple Insulating acoustical data, Monolithic acoustical data, Laminated acoustical data, Insulating laminated acoustical data, Double laminated insulating acoustical data, and Double glazed insulating acoustical data.

Conclusion

Glass varies from different types (monolithic/laminated/double glazing, etc.), different thicknesses (3mm~19mm basic single piece), energy-saving standards (U value varies from 5.7 to 0.5). Most importantly today: acoustic value classifications.
The above tools can help us to choose the right glass with suitable weight and thickness, based on the most economic costs.
