Determining What Density Soundproof Glass to Use

There are several factors to keep in mind when considering the addition or upgrading of soundproof glass in a home or building remodeling project. There is a lot of information available on the soundproofing qualities of glass, or the lack thereof. There are also cost considerations, as the thicker, more effective glass tends to cost significantly more than it's thinner counterparts. The most important thing to keep in mind are the factors that will all come together to contribute to the sound insulation.

Components of Soundproofing

There are three main variables that come into play when evaluating how soundproof home or building is, and the variance of these variables means that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to which options are the most appropriate for one's particular situation. These variables basically boil down to the thickness of the glass that is installed, air space between panes of glass, the distance of the structure from the source of noise, and the structures ductwork and other insulating qualities.

Effectiveness

Thicker glass is inherently more effective in reducing noise, but if the remainder of the building is wattle and daub construction, the windows will not ultimately matter. Cost, existing structure, and the source of the noise are the things to keep in mind when selecting glass.
