Noise can interfere with sleep, rest and conversation, and cause fatigue, irritability, headaches and stress. It needs to be contained and reduced in order to enjoy a healthy life. Thoughtful design and practice can reduce the impact of noise and improve the quality of our living environment.
Windows and glass play an important role in reducing unwanted noise in buildings. Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows are well known for their outstanding security features and extra width capabilities. Now, they also have improved sound insulation properties.
In recent tests carried out at the National Acoustic Laboratories, in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1191-2002, these impressive louvre windows achieved a weighted sound-reduction index equivalent to the noise of very loud traffic being reduced to that of an average office. Australian architects can now confidently specify Safetyline Jalousie Louvre Windows in projects where sound reduction is important or a key requirement.
