Home Living : April 13th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 5 Noise barrier » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING In a busy city like Sydney it is almost impossible to escape the annoying outside noise from traffic, neighbours, dogs or airplanes. The majority of noise entering your home is through the windows. An easy and effective way to reduce noise is with secondary glazing. As well as sound reduction, secondary glazing windows provide insulation against scorching heat on summer days and freezing cold nights in winter. This will make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Secondary glazing can be installed using either a second sliding aluminium window or by retro-fitting magnetic panels inside your existing windows. Secondary glazing can reduce the noise through a window by up to 70 per cent and reduce up to 80 per cent of the heat loss through the window. Secondary glazing works by creating an air cavity between your existing window and the new interior window. This air cavity acts as a buffer against noise and temperature. The more airtight the window system the better the noise reduction and insulation. The magnetic windows take this further by using a Plexiglass glazing which insulates up to six times better than traditional glass. Both systems are suitable for use in homes, units and commercial buildings. The retro-fit double glazing is also suitable for heritage buildings and homes.
