Acoustic Insulation for Wooden Windows
In recent decades, city centers became a lot noisier. Windows are the main potential source of noise infiltration from the street, meaning a higher level of insulation is essential for our quality of life.
Acoustics are measured in decibels. According to Israeli standards, the minimal requirement of noise reduction for buildings is measured at 24 decibels. Acoustic materials for window frames, however, still don’t always meet the demands of both architects and residents.
At Noga Nagarut we’ve established our noise reduction minimum at 32 decibels by gluing double and even triple glass, terracing wood and attaching double rubber seals and an acoustic guillotine (could not find reference for the correct term) – Providing a practical solution for optimal noise reduction.
