Document reveals glazing can prevent noise from entering the home

  • 20 Jan 2015

Printed versions of GGF’s ‘Acoustics’ document have been sent to the company’s Members and a PDF electronic version is now available for homeowners to download

GGF’s new publication defines exactly what noise is and describes how it materialises. It also explains how installing secondary glazing or replacement windows can reduce airborne noise.

The document states that the reduction of noise levels often depends on the source of the noise, the type of property the noise is affecting and how the noise is getting into the home.

In the leaflet, the GGF also outlines some of the factors that should be considered when installing glazing to reduce noise, such as the types and thickness of glass and the size of air gaps between the window panes.

The document was produced with the help of GGF’s technical team and its Members.
