AWS – Evaluating performance for acoustic privacy

AWS – Evaluating performance for acoustic privacy

Acoustic privacy in many properties has become a major concern in recent times. Local governments have introduced regulations to address the problem. In some instances local municipalities have their own regulations or guidelines regarding noise abatement. Many projects are now required to meet strict acoustic specifications to reduce the impact of traffic, aircraft noise, and entertainment systems.

Architectural Window Systems (AWS) has conducted extensive research and testing on their aluminium window and door systems to evaluate acoustic performance, and determine Weighted Sound Reduction Index (Rw) values for their systems with various glazing options.
