About Noise Levels
While we are prepared to tolerate a level of noise during our daily activities, we all value a peaceful and relatively quiet home life.
Noisy neighbours, loud radios or constant street or aeroplane noise can be very distressing and can even lead to ill health. Paarhammer windows and doors can eliminate such irritations with a range of noise reduction products which combine aesthetics, design, and security, with greatly reduced sound levels. A feature that has become a key decider for the astute renovator and home-owner.
Every 10dB reduce noise levels by half
Noise is measured in decibels (dB) which is a logarithmic scale to relative changes in loudness. For every 10dB change the noise is perceived twice or half as loud. As such a 20dB reduction would reduce the noise by four times. The performance of a window cannot be determined from that of the glass element alone. The glass and frame together determine the acoustic insulation performance of the entire window and in some cases the entire façade.
Noise levels reduced by 80-90% - great for inner city living
With sound protection of up to 45dB (some 80-90% over conventional windows), it's just one of the benefits customers receive by installing Paarhammer windows and doors. In fact, this is often a key factor why customers choose our windows. Whatever your location, Paarhammer aims to provide you with windows and doors that will perform well beyond noise reduction of conventional windows.
