Thermal and acoustic insulation glass

In recent decades glass has become more and more efficient in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation, to the point of offering a multitude of possibilities in the construction of your home.


Thermal insulation

Double glazing has been around for many years, but over time it has become more and more efficient. Nowadays, “simple” double glazing offers thermal insulation far superior to a version from ten or twenty years ago.

But how is thermal insulation glass produced? In general, two (double glazing) or three (triple glazing) sheets of glass are assembled with an air void between them. The thickness of the vacuum, the number of glass sheets as well as the use of certain insulation layers on the glass will influence the thermal performance of the glazing. The choice of glazing to use will depend on your expectations, your use and the configuration of your window frames.

If you have old frames with single or double glazing, it is often possible to place a last generation double glazing in order to improve the thermal performance of your home.


Acoustic insulation

Sometimes you are disturbed by outside noise, such as road or air traffic. Installing sound-insulating glass can help reduce this noise and increase your comfort. Two factors influence the acoustic performance of your glazing. The first is the thickness of the glass and the second the presence or absence of a laminated glass. To reduce external noise, it is for example advisable to use glasses of different thicknesses in the assembly of your double (or triple) glazing and to insert at least one laminated glass with an acoustic film.

Be careful, however, that one noise is not the other. Depending on the type of frequency you want to eliminate (high or low) the glazing is not the same.
