What is acoustic laminated glass?
Acoustic laminated glass is designed to reduce noise pollution. This helps provide a sound barrier between an inside area and the outside. This type of glass is typically used in airports, recording studios and meeting rooms, providing a noticeable sound barrier against outside noise. The acoustic glass works in two ways, reflecting noise back, and absorbing within the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. Simply increase the thickness of glass to further reduce noise pollution.

What is laminated glass?
Whilst acoustic laminated glass protects against noise, laminated glass protects against physical force and breakage, which a single pane of glass does not have the capabilities to do. This type of glass allows for some force to be exerted. However, in the event of breakage the special interlayer will hold the glass pieces together, making it the ideal safety glass.
What are the benefits of laminated glass?
- An ideal product to add security, or to act as a barrier for an area that could face high impact
- The inner plastic layer will hold the shattered glass together in the event of a breakage
- This glass solution is perfect for shopfronts, balconies, single / double glazed windows and more!

Where does acoustic laminated glass work best?
Due to its noise cancelling benefits, we often see people opt for an acoustic laminated glass solution in typically noisy areas that experience high traffic. An example of this being a motorway service station, or even a busy airport in which loud vehicles regularly pass.
Although we often see custom acoustic glass as a part of these large, open areas they are also found in smaller, more intimate spaces. These include meeting rooms, recording studios and play areas in which the noise can become an issue for people in other rooms close by. Overall, this kind of glass is ideal for many settings so, if you feel like you could benefit from acoustic laminated glass then make sure you get in touch with our experts today.
Does laminated glass reduce noise?
If you opt for acoustic laminated glass, then the answer is yes! This significant reduction in noise is why you will see acoustic glass in many buildings that have to deal with loud noises on a regular basis. Used in order to prevent noise pollution, and to make people using the facilities a lot more comfortable when going about their daily activities, acoustic glass is the perfect solution here.
This kind of acoustic glass is made to provide a tough barrier between noise either side of the pane and is done by both reflecting noise away from the glass pane and absorbing the remaining sound waves within its interlayer. You can expect a dramatic reduction in any loud noises that are present nearby, meaning you will benefit from a much quieter space!
