See below how Design Glass Solution by Saint-Gobain can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Acoustic performance
Saint-Gobain Glass produces a range of acoustic insulating glazing, made of sustainable materials, to keep noise outside so that occupants can enjoy their living space in peace and quiet. Depending on its thickness, a single pane of STADIP SILENCE can dampen the sound to 47 dB.
To ensure the building's acoustic performance, including sound insulation meets the appropriate standards for its purpose.
All unoccupied spaces must comply with defined indoor ambient noise level (either national regulation, or good practice standards, or BREEAM levels). The ambient noise is measured on site by a suitably qualified acoustician to ensure that the relevant spaces achieve the required levels. The sound insulation between “acoustically sensitive rooms” (offices, meeting rooms, rooms used for public speaking or seminars …) and other occupied areas comply with the privacy index.
For rooms/areas used for speech, a reverberation time level has to be respected

Glass partitions made of STADIP SILENCE can be an interesting solution to reduce noise pollution without blocking natural daylight. This solution combines two or more sheets of clear glass bonded together with an acoustic, transparent, plastic interlayer (PVB). The interlayer reduces sound and the level transmitted through the glass, helping to keep unwanted noise out or to keep noise in.
Depending on its thickness, a single pane of STADIP SILENCE can dampen sound to 47 dB. In a double layer construction, sound insulation values of up to 50dB are possible. In addition, STADIP SILENCE also provides numerous opportunities for creative design and personalization.
Used in doors and partitions, CLIP-IN SILENCE is a system of modular glazed partitions that ensures an acoustic performance of up to 48dB. To guarantee optimal sound-proofing, this system uses the STADIP SILENCE sound-proof laminated glass, with built-in acoustic film.
This acoustic simulator allows you to easily determine the best performing glazing for your windows according to your exterior environment.
