By using acoustic laminated glasses, you can manage the level of noise and the sound level of any space. They are among the most popular models of glass with similar features. Acoustic glass laminates have been created specifically for sound insulation.
Every stage of their manufacturing is scrutinised to ensure that they meet the highest quality standards. Soundproof double glazing is made up of 2 glass sheets as well as an absorbing layer of sound between them. So, not only is there high durability and security of the glass, but the highest quality sound insulation is guaranteed.
How Is Acoustic Laminated Glass Produced?
Acoustic laminated glass can be created with a unique technology that consists of two glass plates with a layer of polyvinyl butyral between them. The two layers are combined under the pressure of pressure and high temperatures.
This technology of production provides total sealing and strength for the glass. The glass does not only provide an effective sound insulation but also provides excellent thermal insulation properties. To obtain the highest performance qualities of acoustic laminated glass in its manufacturing it is essential to:
- Use thick and strong glass plates;
- Utilise laminated glass in double or single glazing systems.
- Laminated glass with different thicknesses is utilised to alter the amount of sound insulation.
- The performance of sound insulation can be increased to a greater degree by the use of multiple laminated glasses.
Acoustic laminated glass has revolutionised the manufacturing of glass. They offer distinct advantages over double-glazed windows, which have the same features. Furthermore laminated glass is able to be used in an extensive range of applications that allows it to be utilised in a variety of spaces.
Understanding How Glass Types Affect The Acoustics Of Partitions
It’s true that many different elements are involved when it comes to determining the Acoustic glass partitions. Conducting acoustic tests using specific methods proves that your certificate is reliable. Additionally, it shows the way in which the acoustic properties of glass partitions is sometimes dependent on the site conditions.
It is equally important to think about the glass thickness and type to ensure the desired acoustic ratings. For instance , the Optima 117 single glazed system was tested using various glass thicknesses and types. Thus, it has been able to achieve a range of acoustic ratings for example:
- 12mm toughened glass, in one multi-module glazed screen Rw33dB Test Ref 542-434
- 12.8mm Acoustic laminated glass one glazed multi-module screen Rw38dB Test Ref 542-432
If you are choosing the thickness of Soundproof windows cost that is the most suitable for your sound quality, taking into consideration the way you apply the glass is crucial. It is crucial to know the differences between the different glass types we have available.
The glass we use to make our systems of glazing is classified as a safety glass in the manner specified in the BS6206. There are however several glass types that fall in this classification, and some are better than others for certain situations.
What Kinds of Glass Should I Be Using?
Standard: BS EN 12150
Annealed glass which has been processed to give it more impact resistance, typically seven times more. Toughened glass is compliant with BS6206 by breaking safely, shattering into dice of equal size. Clamping and drilling glass should be recommended when using Toughened glass, such as when it is used to accommodate furniture for doors.
It is vital to know that the process of tamping up the toughness causes Nickel Sulphide (NiS), also known as inclusions that occur naturally in floating glass.
Inclusions may, with time, though very uncommon, can cause a sudden cracking of the toughened glass panel. Although all glass makers and processors follow all the feasible measures to ensure that glass is free of inclusions, it’s impossible to ensure an absence of nickel sulphide inclusions.
The Glass Is Tempered With Heat And Has Been Soaked
Standard: BS EN 14179
To greatly reduce the possibility of NiS caused spontaneous failure The glass panels that are toughened are often placed through a second process known as heat soak test. While it is not an absolute guarantee it can show whether there are NiS inclusions. It is a test that is destructive that is designed to break any glass panel which is in danger. To ensure total trust in the security for glass products, it’s the company policy to heat-soak any toughened glass.
Standard: BS EN ISO 12543
Making Laminated glass is a matter of glueing 2 layers of glass annealed each side of the PolyVinyl Butyral (PVB) Interlayer. To be able to categorise our product as a safety glass and a safety glass, the PVB interlayer must not be smaller than 0.76mm thick, and must be capable of safely breaking through the interlayer that holds the broken panel together. When you don’t need to cut or drill into or cut the glass we suggest using laminated glass to partition the space.
Acoustic Laminated Glass
Standard: Standard: BS EN ISO 12543
We manufacture acoustic double glazing cost in the exact same way as we make traditional laminated glass. It however uses a soundproof PVB interlayer to attain substantially better quality acoustic properties.
Toughened Laminated Glass
The Standards Are BS EN 12150 (Toughened) And BS EN 12543 (Laminated)
This kind of glass has the advantages of laminated and toughened glass. It is typically made up of the use of a 1.5mm PVB interlayer. Since it also has the advantage of laminated glass it does not typically require the extra process of heat-soaking.
Toughened laminated glass, typically used for glass screens that are adjacent to the presence of a significant elevation change (e.g. in an atrium) and in situations where there is a possibility of significant crowd load, as specified by BS 6180, and BS 6300 and BS.
Annealed Glass (Unprocessed Floating Glass)
We do not make use of Annealed glass, in its original unprocessed, unprocessed version because it is not classified as a safety glass.
Selecting A Glass Type For Partitions Is Based On The Application Some Examples
A lot of architects prefer to utilise laminated glass as partitions because of the security of breaking and the ability to attain various levels of sound control security, privacy, and other effects, by varying the thickness and kind of interlayer utilised.
For the CMS project, for instance the use of a single glazed window insulation structure with acoustic ratings of high was needed, and 12.8mm thick laminated acoustic glass was the ideal choice. Glass partitions that are full height guard from a drop in level which serves as a security.
This happened within, where Revolution double-glazed system was chosen for the. We installed a mixture of 17.5mm thick laminated glass that was toughened and 12.8mm laminated glass to increase security and to make sure that the glass could withstand the required design loads.
There are a variety of different types of glass and thicknesses that are used in designing glass partitions to meet the requirements of audio-acoustic quality as well as the glass’s application. Glass is a brittle and inelastic substance, which means it is not good for conducting sound. In reality, it’s quite effective in reflecting sound.
The issue is that the glass inside of your windows can be thin, which means that it won’t be able to fight off a big fight. If left untreated (or as one pane) it can do little to stop the sound from entering your home. This is the reason standard double or single glazing isn’t advised if you suffer from the negative effects from noise-related pollution.
