Acoustic Glass

Acoustic requirements are met typically by using thicker types of glass. For example, to achieve maximum soundproofing properties, a window or door can be fitted with a double-glazed unit of glass where the outside sheet is 10mm and the inside sheet is 6mm thick. Special studio quality SoundControl glass can be used in severe cases.

Low E-Glass

Low-e (Low Emissivity) glass is used to improve the thermal properties of windows and doors. The glass is typically used on North facing walls in Australia and helps a home retain warmth by allowing long energy waves (heat) to enter the house through the windows and doors and prevent these waves leaving. Good for warming cold houses.
