  Heavy curtains won' t really achieve a lot for reducing traffic noise. Double glazed windows, or secondary glazing added to existing windows will help, as well as improving the amount of bulk insulation inside wall cavities. Secondary glazing is the best method of noise insulation, as it creates a cavity from the primary window which reduces resonance and reverberation, making the interior quieter.. There are a number of regulations that should be considered, although secondary glazing is not specifically governed by them; BS ‘Sound Insulation and Noise Reduction for Buildings’, Planning and Policy.

  I once lived next to a very busy roundabout and had secondary glazing to combat the noise. This worked very well without double glazing. When I had the DG installed it was even better but the sec glazing made all the difference. There was a gap of cm between the DG and SC and you could barely hear any road noise from 3 busy lanes of traffic. In high road traffic areas, we suggest these windows for those who are living along main roads, or in the inner city, and for front-facing rooms. Constructed with triple layered hardwood, and specialist noise reduction glass, we cite this as one of the finest stand alone solutions to noise pollution.

If you’re in the market for noise reducing windows, you will more than likely come across three main options: Secondary Glazing, i.e. adding a secondary sheet of glass. This is the lowest cost option but not effective for significant noise problems. Noise Reduction Glass has been manufactured with qualities to prevent noise pollution. Secondary glazing involves installing supplementary window glazing elements onto an existing single-glazed window.. The different pieces of glass act as independent barriers to the transmission of greater the cavity between the two panes, the better the dampening effect. If noise attenuation is the primary issue with your windows, secondary glazing can be a great solution.

Traffic noise and secondary glazing by Stephen Turner Download PDF EPUB FB2

The traffic noise from indoors is very noticeable, and I’m wondering just how effective secondary glazing has been in others experience for reducing traffic noise. Reports indicate that a passing diesel bus often creates 85dB of noise.

Correctly installed, Granada secondary glazing can reduce noise levels by 54dB, a reduction of 54dB will reduce the noise level to 31dB, which is the equivalent to a whisper.

All the openings were treated with the secondary glazing placed mm from the primary windows. The cavity created serves to deaden the sound that penetrates through the primary window. The difference in thickness between the primary and secondary glazing, removed any danger of resonance between the two and thus aiding in reducing noise.

In fact, secondary glazing can be up to five times better at tackling noise pollution. Double – and even triple – glazing has Traffic noise and secondary glazing.

Secondary Glazing to Stop the Outside Noise: This is a second window inside the true external one. For sound proofing, the air gap is critical; the larger the better. Ideally you should have the secondary glazing at least 2 inches (50mm) from the external window.

It should have an airtight, sound proof seal when closed (if it can be opened). Soundproofing windows from SE Secondary Glazing can help reduce unwanted noise and sounds by up to 90%. Soundproofing windows can help you relax in your home by reducing noises from heavy traffic, aircraft, noisy pubs and clubs and even noisy neighbours.

Soundproof windows can be useful if the home is situated on a busy road or on a flight path. So our new house is on a 30mph road. It's set back from the road by a driveway. The front room windows upstairs have double glazed windows and then secondary glazing. The bay window in the lounge has double glazed upvc windows.

Not sure how old but seem to be in relatively good condition but may want new ones at some point. Using secondary double glazing for noise reduction is often thought of as the more affordable alternative to double glazed windows.

However, this misconception is not giving property owners the full picture. Firstly, even the best secondary glazing cannot hold a candle to the noise dampening power of a high quality double glazed unit. However, dh was doing shift work at the time so we added secondary glazing in our bedroom - which is at the front of the house.

It really has made a difference. The traffic noise doesn't really bother us in the rest of the house - the house is deep rather than wide so the back of the house is further away from the noise.

Here we have a flat on the Earls Court Road, one of London's busiest and noisiest roads. By fitting secondary glazing we have reduced road noise by a significant degree. With secondary glazing, a second window is built inside the existing window.

The secondary window is constructed using aluminium frames, thick laminated glass and thermal/acoustic seals. The perimeter frame is then sealed to the existing reveals so there are no gaps that would allow noise. I used to live next to a main road and adding secondary second glazing with a large air gap made a noticeable improvement but it needs to be fitted well.

It won't cut down all noise but most is reduced, heavy rumbling HGVs will still rumble past. The beauty of it is that you only need to fit it in one or two specific rooms, such as the front. Secondary glazing is available as openable, removable or fixed units.

The openable panels allow access to the external window for cleaning and the opening of both the secondary glazing and external windows. Fixed forms of secondary glazing are designed to be removed in warmer months when the thermal benefits are not required. What kind of noise reduction can be expected from City Sound’s secondary glazing.

There are many different kinds of pollution you may experience – but let's take road traffic noise. An ideal, discreet option for Historic or Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas, Secondary Glazing provides a solution to cold, draughty rooms and traffic noise. Adding secondary glazing can normally be done without council permissions and can be installed within a very short period of time.

When tested for decibel reduction, the acoustic/secondary glazing combination can reduce noise penetration levels by up to 40 decibels. This is a significantly higher reduction than the recommended 30 decibels for a typical residential area.

Newview Windows are part of the Heathrow Noise Scheme. Our acoustic windows have been installed on. Noise in our cities and towns can have a big impact on our lives, both at home and in work.

Secondary glazing has been specified for a wide variety of buildings, mainly homes, hotels, schools, libraries, hospitals, studios, pubs and clubs as an effective way to tackle noise pollution or meet strict local authority noise criteria.

Fusion windows are proud to offer Secondary glazing to London and the Home counties. Secondary Glazing is an efficient and cost effective way of reducing noise polution to your home. It transforms your house immediately by cutting down on traffic and aircraft noise whilst stopping drafts and heat loss.

Secondary double glazing was very effective, and our master bedroom was next to the road. I'd consider the garden noise as well,though, particularly if you've got kids.

If they're going to be playing out the back, it probably won't be an issue. Secondary glazing is a fully independent internal window, fitted on the room side of an existing primary window.

This provides significant noise reduction, improved thermal performance and enhanced security. Successful glazing is about so much more than glass. Windows define a building; bringing air and light in, and keeping the outside world at bay.An ideal option for Historic or Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas, Secondary Glazing provides a solution to cold, draughty rooms and traffic noise.
