Noise Control Units

Allow building occupiers to reduce the noise inside a building to acceptable levels without sacrificing daylight.

Pilkington Insulight™ Phon and Pilkington Insulight™ Phon Triple are the names for our own acoustic insulating glass units that help to improve and enhance sound insulation, where there is excess noise from road, rail, air traffic, or various other sources, for example factories or nightclubs.

With increasing traffic on the road, rail and in the air, noise insulation has become a very important topic. It is not a question of it being a luxury anymore it is essential that noise reduction is considered in the specification of the glazing.
