Safe and Sound

Our Sound Solution

The residents surrounding Birmingham Airport, UK are now enjoying a little more peace and quiet thanks to the installation of new windows by Profix Ltd which have drastically reduced aircraft noise and have also provided enhanced thermal insulation.

The social housing specialist worked with Salford University  to develop a solution in accordance with the BRE and tested in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3:1995 – laboratory measurement of airborne sound insulation of building elements.

Profix’s own high performance acoustic glass was used which also allowed for the development of a window with improved energy efficiency. Not only do the residents benefit from less noise transmission, but they can also benefit from reduced energy bills thanks to the use of the Protherm range.

In addition to the sound and energy befefits the windows carried Kitemark and Secured by Design security accrediation, thus keeping sound and unwanted visitors out and heat and valuables in. 

Energy Star Phonic Glass in Production

Part of a rolling programme the project measurement from homeowner satisfaction survey from Profix is showing a 99.8% satisfaction level. This survey is just one element of the audit process carried out by the company. Key partners include: Fabstore, Birmingham Airport, Pilkington, Edgtech and Birmingham City Council.

“This has been a rewarding project, not just for us but to see the positive impact these windows have on the residents surrounding the airport. Thanks to our in-house glass processing division we are capable of developing some technically advanced window solutions.”

I have had much success (and a few failures) in my working life and hopefully by sharing some of my life experiences will help generations of budding entrepreneurs to follow.” Alan Sadler
