Noise affects your health
The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, rather than no disease or physical defects only, and recognizes everybody’s fundamental right to enjoy the best possible health. Noise pollution poses a threat to health and affects human well-being.
In Europe, WHO recorded noise pollution of the environment among the leading adverse environmental factors and the most common cause of public complaints in many countries. Long-term consequences have been identified, e.g. cardiovascular disorders (hypertension, coronary heart disease), mental disorders, bouts of depression and anxiety states.
The physicians and scientists are committed to reducing the harmful noise factors of noise. There are worldwide generally accepted noise standards for residential and working premises, which should be noted when you choose sound insulation.
SILENCE IN YOUR HOUSE IS GREAT SCIENCE
3-4 dB increase in noise insulation is enough for a significant noise reduction. For example, the difference between lively conversation and traffic is only 10 dB, although the human ear suggests that traffic noise is several times louder than a conversation.
In scientific terms, decibels are not linear but logarithmic. 3 dB noise reduction is perceived by a human ear as double reduction, 6 dB reduction, as four times reduction, and so on.
The thicker the glass in a glazed unit is the quieter the house will be. But window noise insulation is not always directly dependent on the glass thickness in a glazed unit.
Scientifically, sound is vibrations. The external glass of a glazed unit received the pressure of a sound wave and transmits it through the air chamber to the next one. Vibrations decrease with each such transmission.
