What to Know About Sound Proof Glass

sound proof glass

As a contractor, you know that many glass types are available for your projects. However, you have yet to use sound proof glass and aren’t sure if it’s right for you. If you’re still on the fence about trying it, here’s some information that can help you decide whether to add it to your material options.

How Does It Work?

Sound proof glass includes heavier thickness with low coincidence frequency issues. If you don’t know the term, coincidence frequency refers to the wavelength at which a glass pane vibrates. Typically, thicker panes have higher frequency levels and resist sound more effectively.

For instance, this glass type has a 30% differential in thickness, as well as a stronger decoupling interlayer. These extra elements help it stop sound more easily and keep your customer’s homes or businesses quieter. Beyond that, it can also provide other benefits for your contracting firm.

What Benefits Does It Provide?

Contractors often use this glass type in cities because it protects against noise pollution. For instance, installing it in restaurants keeps customers from excessive traffic sounds while they eat. Even homeowners in urban areas get these benefits, particularly in living rooms.

Furthermore, this glass provides great protection against various storm-related issues. In Florida, that’s a major benefit against hurricane winds. After all, according to our sources, Hurricane Irma created 185-mile-per-hour winds for 37 hours and was the strongest Category 5 Atlantic hurricane ever. Protection against those winds can improve your project’s quality.

Is It Right for Your Building Project?

You may find this glass works well in many projects because it provides maximum sound protection and high-damage protection. Many contractors consider it a good alternative for most glass types, particularly in cities. Thankfully, you may also use it in rural areas as well.

We suggest adding it to your general building options and advertising it directly to your customers. Highlight its benefits and discuss how it differs from other glass, including its varying thicknesses. Doing so can help them better understand whether it works well for their needs.
