Modern life is noisy. We’re subjected to a barrage of noise from road traffic, railways, flights paths, industry—all sorts of sources—on a daily basis. It’s little wonder that increasingly we crave some peace and relaxation; a haven from the chaos of everyday life.

Creating a more peaceful living environment

A Rose Collection window provides great acoustic performance as standard. On average it will block around 33dB of exterior noise.

To put that into context, if you live near to a busy road or in a noisy urban location, you can expect external noise levels to be around 60 to 70dB. Reducing that noise by 33dB brings it down to less than 40dB — well within recommended guidelines.

Sash Window Noise Levels

For even better performance, we offer a range of acoustic glazing upgrades that can further reduce noise by up to 15% (up to 38dB in total) – perfect for homes in particularly noisy locations such as closer to railway lines or motorways. Acoustic laminated glass is an option on all our sliding sash windows.

This glass includes a special 0.8mm membrane specifically designed to dampen sound. Installed alongside standard 4mm glass in a double-glazed unit, the combination of different glass thicknesses and acoustic membrane serve to disrupt, absorb and reflect sound waves. The result? Less sound can pass through the glass and into your home.

Sash windows designed with noise reduction in mind

All our windows are designed with noise reduction in mind, as well as thermal efficiency, security, great aesthetics and low maintenance.

Every detail, from the frame and sash profiles, gaskets, brushpiles and glass, has a part to play in reducing the noise that can come through a closed Roseview sash window.

The World Health Organisation estimates that sustained exposure to more than 40dB is above healthy levels, while noise of 70dB means there’s a 30% chance of being woken up when you’re asleep. The standard 33dB noise reduction offered by Rose Collection sash windows is more than enough to ensure that your home falls below those levels.

The importance of noise reduction

For many of us, noise reduction can be just as important as thermal efficiency; a quiet, peaceful, relaxing place to unwind and escape the chaos of modern life is essential in today’s hectic society. Upgrading to Rose Collection uPVC sash windows can make a real difference to both your home and your standard of living.

Have a look at the BlueSky Certification results above and watch the video footage of the acoustic testing taking place to fully understand the significance of acoustic glazing. With any of the Rose Collection options, the inside of your home will be quieter and calmer.

When manufacturing our sash windows, we always go the extra mile to ensure the highest performance. With Rose Collection sash windows, you could realistically limit noise inside your home to below 20 decibels. This is equal to the sound of rustling leaves or whispered voices – in short, a quiet and tranquil living area where you can relax and unwind with the whole family.
