In order to ensure comfortable living, a home needs to be insulated both from an acoustic and thermal point of view. Keeping external noise at bay allows us to live in peace and to get a good night’s sleep. In short, it ensures greater physical and mental wellbeing.
Windows are a critical point when trying to create spaces with a high level of acoustic insulation since they connect with the outside and as such they can let in a lot of external noise. So how can we achieve effective acoustic insulation?
To ensure comfortable living in your home, the noise insulating properties of a window are an important factor to consider when choosing a window. It is an aspect that is often overlooked, which consequently can have a distressing impact on your physical and mental wellbeing.
By choosing an ALsistem window, you can count on a range of external noise-reducing features:
- The frame material;
- The joints between the glass and frame;
- The frame thickness.
The special treatments applied during manufacture mean that all the materials used guarantee excellent performance and durability.
However, the intrinsic properties of certain materials make them more suited to meet the standards required for acoustic insulation. For this reason, ALsistem offers a window range in combined materials (wood and aluminium), which harnesses the benefits of both materials together resulting in exceptionally high soundproofing performance.
THE JOINTS BETWEEN GLASS AND FRAME AND FRAME THICKNESS
The joints between the glass and frame are made from materials that absorb sound vibrations. They ensure air tightness and dampen the vibrations of the glass pane when it is hit by sound waves.
In this way, they significantly contribute to increasing the acoustic insulation power of the window.
The thickness of the frame can also affect acoustic insulation capacity. A thicker frame will provide greater insulating power.
