Acoustic glass offers a number of solutions for reducing noise in homes and workplaces and choosing the right one isn’t always easy. AGC’s Acoustics App enables users to select from a range of common noise sources (dog barking, city traffic, etc.) and to hear to them as they would sound through an open window.
Users then ‘close’ the window by selecting a particular type of glass: nine specifications are available ranging from single to triple acoustic glazing. Users can listen to and compare the level of sound protection offered by the different specifications via their smartphone or tablet. For each specification selected, the app also generates a comprehensive file detailing the relevant levels of acoustic, safety and thermal insulation performance; the results can be sent to an email address of their choice.
The app also features a sound level meter to measure the noise level in decibels in a user’s immediate environment. The Discover section also explains the basics of sound, sound insulation and acoustic glass. Simply search for the ‘AGC Acoustic’ in your preferred App Store.
