Reducing Noise with Window Shutters

Using Window Shutters to Reduce Noise

Your window treatments are designed to meet a range of functional requirements in your home that extend beyond merely protecting you from the elements.

Window shutters are a great way to reduce external noise in your home so in this article, we’re having a look at the modern shutter options that are available in Queensland.

 

Soundproof Shutters to Reduce Noise

 Window shutters, especially those made from aluminium, have incredible potential to reduce outside noise by up to 75 per cent. Whether you work from home or live in one of the busiest areas in Brisbane or the Gold Coast, your indoor space can become a sanctuary with shutters that make it easier to concentrate and detach yourself from the outside world.

There are a range of window treatments available to help you get a good night’s sleep. In fact, waking up feeling refreshed can increase productivity and has been found to reduce the effects of depression and exhaustion. The thicker your shutters are, the less noise will enter.

 

Completely Sound Proofing Your Home or Office

Although window shutters will drastically reduce the amount of outside noise that enters your home, they cannot eliminate noise that enters by other means. Inspect your home carefully to find any gaps or cracks that could allow noise to pass through then apply a silicone sealant in these areas of your home. Shutters will dramatically reduce sound exposure in any room but cannot work alone to battle noise that enters through unsealed air gaps.

Double-paned glass on windows will create an extra barrier between yourself and traffic noise. Alternating materials, such as glass and aluminium, block different frequencies of sound and therefore reduce overall noise considerably.

 

Customising Your Window Shutters

As shutters and blinds are made using a range of different styles and materials, the options for design and functionality are endless. Reputable blinds specialists can customise shutters to perfectly suit your home or office.
