Our living environment is increasingly confronted with so-called acoustic pollution. There can be a considerable amount of noise in a a building due to road, rail and air traffic. There is adequate scientific proof that noise nuisance can lead to psychological and physical complaints, ranging from sleeping disorders to hearing impairments. In view of the fact that the problem is only getting worse, acoustic ease is becoming increasingly more essential.
Glass can be an important component in combating noise nuisance but the result is strongly influenced by the frame, other materials used, the fitting and volume of the space behind it.
