Riot Glass® retrofit systems consist of custom-made security glass and framing designs that provide maximum protection against external noise.
Sound attenuation just means the weakening of sound. Sound attenuation glazing is an additional sheet of glass or a glass-like material that you can add to your existing glass doors and windows to make them more soundproof.
If you have a property in the city, near a busy road, under a low flight path, by train tracks, or in an industrial area, sound pollution is a real concern. All that noise can make it difficult to concentrate and get work done or make it impossible to get a good night’s sleep.
Fortunately, by adding secondary glazing on top of your property’s existing glass, you can greatly reduce the volume of outside noises to get back to business.
The short answer is no, there is no such thing as a window or a sheet of glass that blocks all types of sound at all times. What is often referred to as “soundproof windows” can be a variety of different types of glass or glass-like products that block and reduce noise.
There are many different types of sounds and they all have different frequencies, and not all types of soundproof windows block all frequencies of sounds.
For instance, glazing that reduces the sound of low-frequency garbage trucks might not be as good at blocking out high-frequency sounds like chirping birds.
There are three main things that influence how soundproof a window is: the thickness, the composition, and the space between the secondary glazing and the existing glass.
Naturally, the thicker the material is, the more it reduces the sound. Also, the more layers there are, the more soundproof a glazing sheet is. For example, laminated glass or polycarbonate glazing shields with multiple layers can be very efficient at sound attenuation.
Finally, the more space there is between the existing panes of glass and the soundproofing glazing, the less noise comes through.
Riot Glass® offers a wide range of secondary glazing solutions. Like soundproof windows, Riot Glass® can help with mitigating noise pollution in your property.
We offer glazing shields of different thicknesses and compositions that are 100% custom-built to fit on perfectly on top of your existing glass doors and windows.
Whether you have an office building or a luxury home that you want to soundproof, Riot Glass® can help reduce the volume of noise from traffic, construction, planes, barking dogs, and any other irritating sounds you’re having problems with.
We serve all types of commercial facilities as well as very high-end residences. We’re committed to helping our clients find the perfect sound attenuation solution for their needs, goals, and budget.
Riot Glass® is a much more affordable and convenient option than replacing your door and window glass with expensive soundproof windows.
This is because it is specifically designed to be retrofitted into or onto almost any existing framing system, with no need to modify or replace the door or window frames.
The only time Riot Glass® can’t be retrofitted is if your property is extremely old and the framing has deteriorated. But this is something we almost never see.
So, how exactly does a sound attenuation retrofit work, you ask? We start by thoroughly measuring the openings for all the doors and windows you want to soundproof. Then, we’ll manufacture all the new sound-resistant glazing to order, right here in the USA.
Once all your new window sound attenuation sheets are ready, they get installed (along with low-profile framing) outside of your existing glass. This is a process called overglazing. Once the new glazing is in place, that’s it!
Because of the premium materials we use, you’ll barely notice a difference in the appearance of your building’s doors and windows, but you’ll definitely notice an immediate difference in the noise levels inside the property.
Riot Glass® doesn’t just help with sound attenuation. In fact, its primary purpose is to drastically increase the security of properties and protect your existing glass to prevent it from breaking.
All our products are made from incredibly impact-resistant materials and provide 24/7 protection against common threats businesses and commercial facilities face, such as forced entry, burglary, smash-and-grab theft, vandalism, rioting, looting, storm damage, and more.
When you choose Riot Glass®, you can be confident you’re getting the best security glass and glass-like glazing shields on the market at an affordable price that suits your goals and budget.
The best part about Riot Glass® is that it adds virtually unbreakable security without doing anything to hurt the curb appeal of your business.
Riot Glass® looks and feels like traditional window glass and is just as transparent. So you also don’t have to worry about blocking out natural light or cutting off views.
