Double glaze window.


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Would like to know who have installed this kind of window for noise reduction.

 

What type do they come in - sliding or open/close type?

How thick is the window panel , 2 times the std glass panel???

How does it isolate the noise??? becos of the thickness or  improved sealing???

 

Can some1 post some pictures too, had not seen one but have heard of it.

 

Est. cost per panel?????????

 

thanks in advance>>>

the open & close type required u to replace the stainless steel hinges with steel rivets every 5 years

This  is also a costly item. think i prefer the slide type and like Koma say.

Is there a double glaze slide type of window.

 

anybody can help?? need to estimate the cost.

I dun have double glazed windows in my current setup, but when I was living overseas some time ago, I have those swing open/close type of windows with double glazing.

 

For sure, the sound leakage is minised as there really can be a good sealing. It was watertight for sure against gale force winds and almost horizontal rain. If its good enough for water tight, it will be more than enough for air-tight.

 

Sliding is not good where sound leakage is concerned due to the inability of the window forming a firm seal around the 4 edges.

Same experience as Jag when living overseas.

I tried looking into this option but it was just too complex for my room as I have curved windows.

 

Advise not to go for sliding as its tough to form a tight seal as there must always be a track. However, there are solutions based on ridges and magnets if you really want to go that way.. can look at those air tight seals for industrial fridges for an idea. The design concept should be similar.. :)

I have sliding windows and doors that are almost completely sound proof and very effective in my opinion. They are not double glazed, but are pressure sealed by the mechanism. The company that makes them is called Fascina. Call Desmond Lim at 6546-4666, but they tend to fit out for a whole apartment or house so I don't know how they will react to a small order. To give you an idea of cost (about 7 years ago), a floor to ceiling soundproof 4 panel sliding door 4m x 2.4m was $2,400, while a 1m x 1.4m window soundproof hinged window was $467.  A 1m x 1.4m sliding window was $440. These are prices for a >$10k order so they may charge more for a small one and I wouldn't be surprised if costs have risen 30+% over the past 7 years.

Ok thanks for the information..

 

Was hoping for  some xtreme guy  to invite me to their place to experience this. ;D

 

Anyway thanks again...

 

Will have to seriously consider this with my little budget. :'(
