Developed in conjunction with GLASSOLUTIONS and Aerotech Laboratories, the CMS Silent-Therm Window is a smart sealed unit designed to significantly reduce the effects of external noise. It is the UK’s first Quiet Mark approved acoustic window.
The sound insulating window delivers A-rated energy performance, improved furniture ‘fade control’ and is compliant with the requirements of Secured by Design.
The CMS Silent-Therm Window utilises different glass thickness in conjunction with Saint-Gobain’s specialist acoustic glass, Stadip Silence, in addition to Planitherm Total+ low-e glass, to reduce sound travel into a room by 5db. The products also optimise heat insulation and solar gain.
The Silent-Therm Window is the first acoustic window in the UK to be approved under the Quiet Mark scheme – an internationally recognised certification from the UK Noise Abetment Society.
The unit is available in six window types to suit all types of PVCu window application, created using Sheerframe PVCu window profiles which are 100% calcium organic stabilised, fully recyclable and feature an advanced multi-chamber profile design. Available window types include casement, reversible and tilt and turn.
