Pilkington Sound Simulator

 

The increasing need for noise control glass

No matter where it originates - from traffic, railways, aircraft, factories, or elsewhere - noise is all around us. And future trends research suggests traffic and noise in general will only get worse as the population rises. While considerable efforts have been made to control noise intrusion into a building and between adjoining areas, the careful selection of glass can be crucial in helping you to reduce noise level and meet noise requirements.

Your options to reduce noise level

Pilkington Optiphon™ is our high performance acoustic laminated glass; it enhances sound insulating properties to meet the increasing demands for noise control. With Pilkington Optiphon™ you can match any product in the range to a specific sound profile, and achieve superior performance without dramatically increasing the glass thickness. This allows you greater flexibility in design, without compromising other functions such as light transmittance and impact safety.

Demo Tool – available online

To help you choose the glass more easily, we have developed the Pilkington Sound Simulator. It allows you to hear the simulated effect that different types of glass, and particularly Pilkington Optiphon™, can have on attenuating various external noises to provide a comfortable internal noise climate.
