Laminated glass is the best solution to provide sound control, as it can help us to reduce from 35-40 decibels. Don’t forget to take into account that the glazing system also plays an important role in reducing the passage of sound from the outside.

This film, which is usually PVB (although there are others such as EVA or Sentryglas, with different features), is an intermediate adhesion layer that, in addition to controlling sound waves, provides safety features to the glass. In addition to providing additional resistance, a great advantage is that in case of breakage, the film retains the glass fragments and avoids their detachment or “rain”. This means that penetration (in the case of a window) or falling (in the case of a skylight or dome) is prevented while the relevant repair is being made.

To manufacture laminated glass, it is first assembled, then preheated, pressed and then pressurized in an industrial autoclave. At the time of assembly, the glass must be pre-washed to prevent dust and other particles from being trapped between the sandwich layers of the laminated glass.
