Big bangs provide perfect test for Storm windows!
We’ve mentioned before how Storm’s bespoke secondary glazing helps reduce noise levels. Never has this been tested quite so completely, however, as with a project we’re undertaking with Salford University.
As part on the ongoing process of developing and improving our bespoke glazing system, we're thrilled to announce that Salford University will be performing unique acoustic tests to our wide range of window systems. We’re not exactly sure ourselves yet what testing procedures the windows will endure, but we’re extremely excited to receive the results, which will hopefully give us irrefutable proof of their auditory protective properties.
Science has already played a large part in the development and production of our window systems. We pride ourselves on the quality of our product, and the fact we have hard evidence of our secondary glazing’s heat retentive and resulting energy-efficiency attributes.
Together with their ease-of-use and imperceptible installation, our window systems are leaders in their field for period homes, listed and historic buildings where the preservation of feature windows is of paramount importance.
To have a conclusive case study of how our system performs under intense acoustic testing will add immensely to our portfolio of benefits, and will enable our windows to pass further planning specification demands.
Testing is due to begin in July this year and we should have the results by the end of August - so we’ll update you on the findings later in the year!
