Listen up! – the energy-saving sound-insulating window HBI.SILENCE
HBI’s sound-insulating windows provide a precious resource: silence. Excessive exposure to noise often contributes to common health problems such as deafness, tinnitus, high blood pressure, insomnia, poor concentration or childhood learning disabilities. Sound-deadening windows from HBI can help nip these ailments in the bud.
Less noise, cold and humidity
HBI sound-insulating windows effectively block day-to-day environmental noise with a perfect pairing of good window design and functional sound insulating glass so you can enjoy the peace and quiet you so richly deserve in your own home. All HBI windows and entry doors come standard with at least two layers of weatherstripping for a lasting seal and significantly improved sound insulation. As an added bonus, the weatherstripping system prevents unnecessary heat loss and reliably keeps cold, humidity and drafts out of your home.
Nearly 100 % soundproof with HBI
HBI sound-insulating windows conform to VDI Sound Protection Classes 3 to 5 through a clever combination of components. That lets you tailor your windows’ acoustic performance to your needs. For example, you may want better soundproofing in the bedroom than the kitchen. With glass that reduces sound by 45 dB, HBI windows can leave the interior of your home almost untouched by outside noise. The secret: radical sound reduction is subjectively perceived by human hearing as complete soundproofing. And 100 % soundproofing means 100 % relaxation.
More than hearsay: hard facts for the right choice
When selecting sound-insulating windows, the “sound reduction index” matters the most. This measure indicates the window’s ability to deaden sound. Sound levels and sound level differences are measured in decibels (dB). A pro tip from HBI: excellent acoustic glazing can reduce sound by at least 42 dB.
A trained eye and ear during installation
Connection joints should always be professionally sealed during installation – especially with sound-insulating windows. Careful installation is the only way to reliably minimize noise transmission. For more information, talk to our HBI partners.
