Common Reasons for Installing Soundproof Windows in Singapore

Some of the reasons why more and more Singaporeans are opting for Soundproof windows –

HDB/Condo unit is near to the MRT tracks, TV is inaudible when the train passes by

Apartment is next to the expressway and there’s constant noise from the vehicular traffic

HDB flat in a noisy neighbourhood, disturbance from coffee shop or playground in the vicinity

Block off loud sounds from construction activity in surrounding area

Owner is a music or entertainment artist and wants to privacy for himself as well as others

Have the right setting at home for meditation, yoga or exercising

Just have a quiet and peaceful home or office environment

Technicalities of Soundproof Windows

Noise suppression in Soundproof Windows is achieved by using double glazed glass in the window panels. These are effective in reducing the noise level to a great extent. Double Glazed Windows consist of two layers of sandwiched glass with a metal strip in between. So, instead of the single layer it’s a 15 mm layer (two 5mm glass sheets separate by 5mm metal strip in the frame). The price of such windows can be estimated based on the rate of $50 psf.

You can expect a noise reduction of 40% to 80% based on the height of your unit. Low floor units can typically expect noise reduction of up to 80%. For a land constrained and densely populated country like Singapore a research done by NUS shows that Singapore’s outdoor noise levels average 69.4 decibels against the World Health Organisation (WHO) noise pollution threshold of 65 dB.

Other Benefits of Soundproofing

There are some other benefits to Soundproof Windows besides sound control. They are temperature control – Keeps the interiors cool on hot sunny day thereby reducing your aircon usage and electricity bills; extra safety and security on account of the extra thickness of the window glass; and eliminating the problem of foggy windows which may occur due to condensation.

Soundproof Glass Doors

Soundproof Doors (for Acoustic purposes) with double glazed panels are also installed as a noise stop solution for many homes. In the recent past, double glazed Sliding Glass Doors have been installed by Grilles N Glass for homeowners in order to control noise from nearby construction sites, aircon condensers of commercial buildings like hotels & malls.

The accompanying video gives an idea of the effect that a Soundproof Sliding Door can have for the interiors. Installed at a customer’s high-rise unit at the Coralis Condominium, Joo Chiat Road (behind I12 Katong Mall), the level of outside sound was reduced by more than half.

As mentioned previously, higher level units will get a lesser amount of soundproofing than what a lower level unit will achieve.

Hats off to Mr Alex and his team, Kumar, Raju and Raki for installing window grilles. They did an excellent job! Great! After checking my kitchen grilles, Mr Alex raised concerns that removing the existing grilles could damage the tiles. However, he said that he will do his best to install the new grilles. His team did it! The workmanship was amazing. Thank you, Mr Alex and his team.

Alex is a very professional window contractor. Not the usual contractor. Before I contracted him, he honestly told me that he was not sure if he could fix my window as the aluminium bended quite badly. Through his experience and knowledge, he managed to get it fixed within 3 hours. If you need a window contractor, I would strongly recommend Alex and his team.

Alex was extremely professional throughout the process and provided information and advice without any pressure or obligation to use his services. We ended up purchasing a full set of grilles and windows (double-glazed casement and sliding) for the entire house around a year ago. During the installation process, Alex was punctual, very accommodating in terms of schedule, and also willing to make adjustments and provide replacements where needed. After around a year of usage, we are satisfied with the quality of the windows and grilles, and would recommend Alex/Grillesnglass if anyone is looking for windows/grilles.
Many thanks to Alex and his team for their great work on the casement window replacement and aluminum grilles for my 4-room resale HDB flat. Alex is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to provide excellent service and after-sales support to his customers. His team demonstrated great expertise and skill in preserving my kitchen tiles and minimising the impact on the surrounding walls as I had done the windows installation after the tiling and plastering work had already been carried out. Highly recommend Alex and his team for the great value for money and high quality services.
Thank you Alex for the quality product, patience and great after sales service. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives.

Got in touch with Alex after seeing many positive reviews online, and decided to engage him to supply and install our whole house windows and catproof grilles. Unlike other big names in the market who quoted high prices but were unable to demonstrate their worth, Alex provided us with fantastic soundproofing solutions for all our windows at a reasonable price. He was always very punctual for site visits and highly responsible throughout the process. Permit application with the authorities was always done on time, and his wife AJ was also very prompt in coordination and following up with us for subsequent installations or touchup work. His workers were also very careful with our flooring, making sure to lay protection before carrying out their works. All in all, my wife and I are extremely pleased with our beautiful windows and grilles, as well as the level of soundproofing. We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who are looking for serious and professional window contractors.

This is for a 4-room resale HDB kitchen window replacement. Decided to enquire with Alex after seeing many good reviews online. Unlike other contractors who were reluctant to come down for site-consultation before proceeding or very slow in response, Alex was quick to respond and agreed for free consultation even if we choose not to proceed. During consultation, he was sincere and patient with all our questions and recommended his solutions professionally. He also assured us that it would be done well, especially the hacking of wall tiles. On day of installation, Alex came down with his team. Once again, they assured us. Indeed, His team were professional and did a great job. After they left, I had couple of questions on the grilles and its rollers. Without hesitation, Alex answered them and sent his team down again to check on the same day. We are very happy with the results! Their services had been excellent! Highly recommend!
