One solution to make your life more comfortable is well insulated windows and doors.
The most important thing to pay attention to is the glazing. In general, thick glass holds back low-pitched sound waves, while a gas-filled vacuum offers the best solution for high-pitched sound waves.
How do your windows and doors protect you?
Acoustic insulation works on two crucial principles:
Creating mass: a thick glass plate will not let as many sound waves through as a thinner plate.
Create asymmetry: different thicknesses of glass and different types of gases in the void will act as barriers against external noise, resulting in less noise pollution. Eventually, it is even possible to integrate laminated glass in the windows for optimal sound insulation.
Apart from the glazing, it is also necessary to pay attention to the window profiles. If these profiles have several chambers and seals, as is the case with Belisol windows, these chambers will also function as sound barriers.
