Now let’s talk about some scientifical facts about noise distribution…
As it has already been investigated, the noise of more than 30 dB reduces our life duration. In this regard, urban livers are living for twelve years less because of the street noise, airports’ sounds and other noisy objects.
Now let’s consider how to make your windows soundproof
Windows’ principal tasks are to reflect two types of sounds: low-pitched noise and high-pitched noise.
To low-pitched noise group, we can refer cars sounds, underground trains, and noises caused by compressors- air equipment.
To high-pitched noise group, we can refer people’s screams, electric hammer drill noise.
We should remind you that the greater part of windows unit is glass made (approximately 63-79 %), so while ordering new windows All Tech Windows Inc. professionals highly advise you to pay the proper attention to glass quality.
As well as the other parts of windows unit, such as profile, fittings, sealing, side welding, are also of high importance.
Let’s take a closer look at each window unit…
Profile or plastic sash
Triple glass low profiled windows and five glass high profiled windows have equal soundproofing capacity. The higher profile is, the more glass panes it has, the more its soundproofing capacity.
Even if the windows profile area is just about 15 – 25 % from the total windows’ area, it still increases the soundproofing qualities. Moreover, this minor soundproofing quality is an addition that can make a difference.
Glass pane unit
The typical windows pane consists of three equal glass covers with a 4 mm depth, that are equally located from one another. Let’s consider the most typical windows pane option of 32 mm. It has the following calculation: 4 mm is glass cover, 10 mm is glass pane, 4 mm is glass cover, 10 mm is glass pane and 4 mm is glass cover.
In order to “kill” sounds with low magnificence, windows with a high depth of glass cover are used. It is used for glass covers with a depth of 5, 6 or 8 mm. But in order to avoid the resonance of windows, it is strongly recommended to use a glass cover of different depths.
To get rid of high-pitched noises, glass panes between glass covers should be as wide as possible (as its sash and strips, that suspend the windows unit, allow it) and here we should follow the recommendations of glass covers different depth.
The most important thing is in details
It is very important to pay special attention for fittings and sealing operating functions. If windows wing is not tightly adjusted or fittings will badly operate, so the noise can be transmitted through windows wing or sealing. So the appliance of updated soundproofing windows will be useless.
Proper installation is of high importance
The improper installation of soundproofing window can make all your affords useless.
So a slight hole in welding can cause the air-tightness failure in the construction of the window. It will badly impact energy and sound protection qualities. Only high qualified specialists can provide the desired quality of welding. All Tech Windows Inc. team is ready to offer you highly qualified service for your welding composure.
