From planes, trains and automobiles, the new animated Pilkington Sound Simulator helps to understand noise control glazing with more ease than ever before.

The new Pilkington Sound Simulator is an animated interactive online tool which allows users to hear the simulated effects different types of glass have on reducing external noise. Architects and specifiers simply log on to www.pilkington.co.uk/tools to choose which type of noise pollution is most relevant to their building e.g. air traffic, road or factory noise. The Pilkington Sound Simulator then plays back the sound that could be heard by the building’s occupants through different types of Pilkington glazing.
 
Julia Berkin, Marketing Communications Manager, Pilkington said, “The Pilkington Sound Simulator makes life much easier when specifying glazing in areas of high noise pollution. With a few simple clicks, the benefits of noise control glass are clear, it is simple to then find a product in our range to help block out unwanted sound.”
 
Sources of noise such as railways, nightclubs and neighbours can cause people to experience inconvenience, annoyance, stress and even diagnosable illness. Glazing and windows play an important part in reducing this noise. Noise reducing glass like Pilkington Optiphon™ can also offer acoustic privacy in applications such as hospitals and schools. 
 
Pilkington Optiphon™ is a high performance acoustic laminated glass that allows architects and specifiers to offer greater noise reduction without having to install thick panes of glass. The technology behind Pilkington Optiphon™ uses a PVB (polyvinyl butyral) specific interlayer that can be varied in number in accordance with a projects needs.
 
Whilst the Pilkington Sound Simulator tool will not be able to replicate the architect’s specific conditions it is a guide to the benefits of using noise reducing glass. For more detailed information on how glass can help with noise reduction please contact Pilkington on 01744 692000.
