solution for reducing noise pollution.

Why are good quality acoustical windows important?

For new buildings and conversion projects it is most important not to neglect good soundproofing of windows that appropriately suits the respective situation. The human ear is one of our most sensitive sensory organs. It has a pitch perception ranging from 16 to 16,000 Hz. Even when we sleep the human sense of hearing remains highly active and sensitive. According to scientific findings the maximum noise level exposure for a sound sleep is 25 dB. In modern times this level can, however, hardly be achieved without appropriate soundproofing, and a large percentage of the population find common sources of noise from the outside increasingly unpleasant and bothersome. The negative effects of environmental noise exposure are a frequent topic of public discussion.

The following gives you a short overview of noise levels that occur in different living conditions and construction situations.
