The sound insulation provided by similar types of windows varies considerably. This paper describes experiments on a number of elements which affect sound insulation, including the sealing of openable panes, the type of frame material, the size of the window panes, and the spacing of panes in multiple pane systems. It identifies the main factors and lists the potential insulation values for various types of window. This paper will be of interest to architects, planners and acoustic consultants.
