55 Glass - Soundproof Glass
55 Glass Los Angeles carries a unique laminated soundproof glass. Soundproof glass was designed in Europe for one reason: to keep noise out. Of course, our soundproof glass will also keep noise in for sound room applications.
Soundproof glass, or acoustical glass as it is also known, is not completely soundproof. No glass can make that claim, however, our soundproof glass is designed for noise reduction. It is much more than just laminated glass because the interlayer is thicker and designed specifically for noise reduction.
For the best results, it is recommended to use two pieces of soundproof glass with as large of an air space as possible in between resulting in a total of four pieces of glass. But it could also be used with a piece of 1/4" tempered glass facing outward. This type of manufacturing effectively makes this bomb-resistant glass. The theory is that the tempered glass facing a blast will break into very small pieces which will not penetrate the laminated glass. This make-up may also be used for skylight installations. Another application is to use Solarcool glass with the soundproof glass. The reflective surface of the Solarcool glass would be facing out with the soundproof glass facing the inside. This is the best way to keep noise and heat out.
Soundproof glass is a laminated glass. When used correctly, regular laminated glass will do a great deal to reduce noise. In fact, in our experience one piece of laminated glass will reduce noise better than a double or even a triple pane in an insulated glass unit.
