Guardian Industries’ Glass Group Introduces Latest Version of Acoustic Calculator

Guardian Industries’ Glass Group in the UK, a leading supplier of industry-leading commercial, residential and interior glass products, has introduced the latest version (2.0) of its Acoustic Calculator, an industry tool that helps glass and building professionals identify the best insulating glass unit (IGU) configuration to meet a project’s specific glazing requirements. This latest version, available free of charge, now offers access to more than 37,000 calculated acoustic values, including octave band centre frequencies, from 125 to 4,000 hz, and provides the acoustic performance for some of the most obscure insulating glass unit configurations, such as thick glass and thick laminated constructions. The Acoustic Calculator 2.0 is mobile and tablet optimised.

The different types of glass covered by the Acoustic Calculator include standard float glass, laminated glass which offers enhanced performance in terms of safety and sound control, and Guardian LamiGlass® Sound Control, which combines excellent acoustic performance with all the benefits of traditional laminated safety glass with a clearly measurable improvement in noise reduction.

The new Acoustic Calculator 2.0 is part of Guardian Plus, a business support programme for the glass and glazing industry within the UK and Ireland, that offers online support ranging from (instant) responses to technical enquiries to in-house or external training in glass and glass-related topics.

The Guardian Plus Acoustic Calculator 2.0 is designed to meet the industry’s growing need to fulfil ever more arduous sound control requirements. Steven Scrivens, Marketing Manager at Guardian Glass UK, explains: “Today it is becoming more common for building projects to be specified with acoustic performance values.

These focus on the decibel performance and the octave band frequencies that identify the level of different sounds. Accurately identifying these factors allows us to more effectively take steps to reduce noise pollution reduced to accommodate the noise pollution in the selected project areas, such as airports, trains, traffic, clubs, stadiums, and so on.”

Steven adds: “This is the most comprehensive acoustic calculation system available for free for the glass and glazing industry. Ideal for industry specialists, such as fabricators, architects, designers, engineers, cladders and downstream businesses, no other calculation system available today offers this level of detail or this number of glazing configuration calculations.”

The Acoustic Calculator 2.0 is available through the Guardian Plus Technical Centre, sign up for free today by visiting www.guardianplus.co.uk.
