    We offer glass upgrades for the doors and windows we manufacture and install, helping you find the right glazing for your environment. One of the key benefits of working with expert joiners like us is knowing that we make everything from scratch and can incorporate the glazing of your choosing during the manufacturing process.

    There are two main types of glass we can offer as upgrades: acoustic glass and safety glass. Find out more about each type and discover which one will be right for you.

    Acoustic glass

    Acoustic glass can dramatically reduce noise levels inside a property. We can achieve a noise reduction of one decibel (dB) with each 1mm of acoustic glass – a 10dB reduction is perceived to reduce noise by half, as heard by the human ear.

    Acoustic glass can also be double glazed, with an Argon gas filled warm edge spacer between the panes.

    This provides better thermal performance as well as reducing noise inside the property.

    Please note that we can only install acoustic glazing when we completely replace your windows, as we need to make sure the frame has a large enough depth to accommodate the thicker glass.

    Safety glass

    There are two main types of safety glass you can choose to help increase security and safety.

    Laminated glass.

    The glass is held together with interlayers and it won’t shatter if broken. For this reason, it’s often used in public buildings, increasing safety if the glass does happen to get broken.

    Toughened glass.

    This type of glass undergoes a heat treatment to strengthen it. Once again, if it does break (which is less likely than with normal glazing), it doesn’t shatter or splinter and will break into chunks.
