For preserved everyday life, sound insulation is an essential element. The choice of PVC window must therefore take into account certain coefficients so that outside noise does not disturb your daily life.
Whether you live in the city or in the country, your needs in terms of sound insulation are naturally not the same. It is estimated that the level of outside noise in the countryside is about 35 dB while it reaches 74 dB in a main street in town. However, as of 60 dB, noise is considered to become annoying, the danger threshold being 80 dB. The challenge is therefore to be able to isolate yourself from these external noises to ensure comfort on a daily basis via specific 4/16/4 acoustic glass.
To isolate yourself from the outside, several elements come into play. The insulation of the house, the thickness of the walls and, of course, the PVC window. This opening to the outside must be a bulwark against noise. For this reason, it is essential to opt for at least sound-absorbing double glazing if you live in a noisy area.
To be sure that you can enjoy your daily life with complete peace of mind, the solution is without a doubt to contact Oknoplast, your window manufacturer. You can then benefit from the advice of an expert capable of meeting your specific needs in terms of PVC windows. The choice of your opening cannot be made at random if you want optimal sound insulation.
