what type of window is most soundproof?


When decorating, many people hope that their new house can effectively isolate the outdoor noise, so as to create a quiet and comfortable living environment for themselves. Obviously, none of us living in the city want our living environment to be filled with neighbors arguing or the sound of square dancing downstairs.

Sound insulation has become the primary need of many owners who replace doors and windows. After all, if the doors and windows of the home are not soundproof, then living in such an environment for a long time will affect sleep at light, and may damage hearing at worst. What kind of doors and windows have the best sound insulation? The editor believes that buying good soundproof doors and windows depends on these three aspects:

1. Sealing process

First of all, doors and windows with good sound insulation must have good sealing performance. Therefore, when choosing doors and windows, the quality of the sealing strip is particularly critical. It affects whether the doors and windows can be sufficiently waterproof, dust-proof, sound-proof and heat-insulating and energy-saving. High-quality sealing tape can choose EPDM tape. The larger the glue content, the better. Such sealing tape will have strong tensile strength, and it is resistant to high temperature and aging.

Secondly, in order to have good sound insulation, casement windows are more ideal than sliding windows, because there is a gap between the sliding window track and the sash, and the sealing and sound insulation are not as good as casement windows. In addition, the three-sealed structure will inevitably have better sound insulation than the two-sealed structure. Of course, some businesses now boast that they are "ten seals", which is unnecessary, it is nothing more than IQ tax,

Finally, the sealing performance of doors and windows is also closely related to the group angle. If the corners are not properly formed and leave gaps, the doors and windows will leak air, water will leak, and the noise will not be effectively isolated.

2. Glass material

Glass occupies 80% of the area of ​​doors and windows. Therefore, the material of glass often has a great influence on the performance of doors and windows. For high-frequency noise, it is most suitable to choose glass with three glass and two cavities. For intermediate frequency noise, it is recommended to choose laminated insulating glass. If you are located in a relatively quiet area, the requirements for sound insulation are not too strict, and insulating glass is also very suitable, not only for thermal insulation, but also to reduce noise to a certain extent. The right choice of door and window glass can greatly reduce the harm caused by noise pollution.

3. Installation level

The best product materials are used, but if the installation level is not high enough, it will also affect the sound insulation effect of doors and windows. During the installation process, it is necessary to ensure that all seams are filled with high-quality foaming agent around the window frame and when the window frame is spliced, and sealant is applied on the outside to block the gap. If this step is not done well, it will be easy to leave gaps and doors and windows will not be able to effectively isolate noise.

All in all, in order to choose doors and windows with good sound insulation effect to improve the quality of life and sleep quality, the above three aspects should be paid attention to.
