How do Ambient Timber Windows & Doors work?
Bereco Ambient timber windows and doors reduce noise by absorbing the sound wave and causing it to lose power. This is achieved through, not only the glass but the frame itself, and each element is carefully designed to absorb and reflect pressure.
Acoustic glass consists of two panes which have been laminated together using an acoustic membrane. Aside from bonding these two panes together, this works to absorb the sound energy and prevent vibration travelling through the glass.
Where air leaks through as does sound. Making use of insulating double gaskets not only has benefits in terms of reduced air leakage and weatherproofing but has the advantage of increased acoustic performance.
The ultimate renewable timber, wood is one of the oldest and most attractive but thats not the only benefit, as a natural it also has a stronger sound dampening property than most other frame materials.
