Sound Reduction Through Windows

Living in a noisy area can prove challenges to people in a household, such as struggling to sleep or being disturbed by outside noise. If you have dogs in your neighbouring area or live next to train tracks, you may regularly hear a noise that you don’t want to. Eco Doors & Windows have soundproofing uPVC double glazed windows available that may be an excellent solution to your noise struggles in Wellington.

uPVC double glazing provides a range of benefits to homeowners. Firstly, they are natural thermal insulators, meaning that you will always have the ideal temperature within your home.

These are the main benefits that customers are aware of, but many don’t realise these windows and doors also have soundproofing qualities.

uPVC reduces sound transference by 38dB, making it the leading option window option for keeping your home quiet. With noise pollution becoming an increasing issue in larger cities across the country, many are looking for solutions that keep the car, plane and people noises on the outside and provide a quiet and comfortable home environment on the inside.

At Eco Doors & Windows, we even offer laminated safety and hush glasses. Both of these feature the highest noise reduction qualities on the market, giving you an excellent soundproofing option. The laminated safety glass is made by a heat pressure process that laminates two sheets of glass with a polyvinyl butyral interlayer between them, making them a safer and thicker option than traditional double glazing. This also shuts an increasing amount of noise out. Our team also installs hush glasses from Viridian, which can further lower the noise levels and increase the soundproofing qualities of your home.
