What is acoustic glass? The purpose of acoustic performing glass windows is to reduce noise. It can soundproof against external noise such as main roads, traffic from motorways, overhead flights, trains, animal sounds and rain hitting against the pane. Installation of soundproofing glass can be used inside buildings as internal windows or even office partitions.
Acoustic glass comprises of usually two glass panes glued together with an acoustic polyvinyl butyral (PVB) layer in the middle, similar to laminated glass. This sandwiched layer is the important part that absorbs sound energy and reduces vibrations. Acoustic glass thickness makes a difference to the level of insulation. The thicker the glazing the better the quality of noise reduction is achieved.
