Our Soundproof Oak Windows
Aug 29, 2014
When you face the issues of living in a noise neighbourhood, you understand the real pain that it can be. With a non stop rumble of cars, lorries and - worst of all – motorbikes driving past your house all day and night, it can be hard to get the rest you deserve, and even harder to get your children or new born to sleep.
Whilst there are a great deal of options available for to help reduce noise on the market, there are very few total noise reduction solutions that produce the best results possible. At least that's our opinion on the matter. When looking into the market place for soundproof windows, we found that stop gap solutions, or half baked designs go only some way to reducing noise pollution in your property.
Secondary glazing does actively help in bringing down ambient noise levels, and can be fairly effective in nullifying a lot of pollution, however their visual appearance is really quite poor, they infringe upon sill space and often can't be installed at properties in conservation areas.
The installation of noise reduction glass is a fairly good option. Aesthetically this solution can be fairly appealing, with the glass capable of being fit into your already existing frames (though often new frames will be required due to the thickness of the panes). Whilst they will certainly reduce noise pollution, the simple fact is that your protection against unwanted sound is only as strong as its weakest point. This means that if your frames are compromised, or simply not optimised for sound-proofing, noise will still flood your home like a leak in a ship.
Noise Reduction Oak Windows
So we took it upon ourselves and thought how can we make the best sound-proofed windows without compromising upon the quality of our oak window frames. Incorporating noise reduction glass, our bespoke oak designs have revolutionised the way we look at window design from the ground up.
Breaking it back down to basics, we looked at every single component of both our casement and sash designs to see where we could maximise noise reduction, ensuring that the frames would not compromise the reductions offered by the glass we install. From the pulley box to the meeting rail, the sills and the latches, we have made sure that every part of the window system is offering something towards reducing the ambient sound levels in the property. So far we haven't found anyone else doing anything like this and are proud to say that we offer a total solution that is better than anything else on the market right now!
