Whether you want to reduce the amount of outside noise that enters your home or you’re looking to improve your windows’ thermal efficiency, the type of glazing you choose is important
A common dilemma homeowners face when purchasing glazing for their windows is between acoustic glass and triple glazing. But which is best and which one should you choose?
Let’s take a closer look at both acoustic glass and triple glazing to help you decide which is best for your home.
What is acoustic glass?
Acoustic glass is made up of laminated glass, two (or sometimes more) panes of glass and bounded internal layer that absorbs sound and vibrations.
Benefits of acoustic glass
Acoustic glass considerably reduces the outside noise seeping through the glass and into your home – perfect if you live in a busy or built-up area.
Not only is acoustic glass ideal for noise reduction, but it also increases the strength of your glass, making it much more secure than your standard glass.
What is triple glazing?
Similar to double glazing, which is made up of two panes of glass separated by a pocket of argon gas, triple glazing consists of an extra layer of glass, separated by gaps filled with argon gas.
Benefits of triple glazing
If your home has the tendency to get cold then triple glazing is ideal for you as it has excellent thermal efficiency – helping to keep the heat in.
Due to being made up of three layers of glass, triple glazed windows are considerably tougher than standard double glazing, protecting your home from intruders.
Thanks to the extra layer of insulation, triple glazing will go a long way in reducing noise from protruding into your home – so you can enjoy a bit of added peace and quiet.
Acoustic glass or triple glazing – which is best?
It is difficult to say whether acoustic glass or triple glazing is best. This is because they both have their own benefits. So deciding which to install into your home really depends on what you’re after. If noise reduction is a priority for you then acoustic glass is best, but if thermal efficiency is most important then triple glazing is the right choice.
Regardless of which you choose, it is important to choose a trusted installer to carry out the work.
