Default Acoustic Glass.....

Hi,

Is there anyway of telling if glass fitted in a double glazed unit is
acoustic glass?

Cheers

PS just remembered - sound reduction can be aided by using glass of
differing thicknesses in a DG unit i.e. they resonate at diff
frequencies and hence may dampen each others transmissions.
So are OPs glasses different thicknesses?

cheers

Yeah you can. Its a laminate with a special layer of a plastic which
reduces sound. I have had some fitted at extra cost to normal glass.

Am just wanting to confirm that i have indeed been fitted with acoustic
glass.

Presumably there is some sort of manufacturer's mark on the glass. You
could check with the manufacturer and ask them to explain what type of
glass it is.
