Hotel & Leisure
Improved comfort levelsMany hotels occupy traditional buildings with single glazed windows that have inadequate seals and provide poor insulation. Surveys show that about half of a hotel's energy consumption is used for heating so raising insulation levels will improve guest satisfaction and reduce running costs. Selectaglaze secondary glazing includes two efficient draught seals and with a low emissivity glass, heat loss can be reduced by up to 65%. The UK tourist industry is booming, and no more so than in our historical towns and city centres. Visitors are attracted by the bars, restaurants and night life, yet these are the things that can make sleeping in a city centre hotel difficult or uncomfortable. Guests want a 'good night's sleep' so keeping unwanted sound out will be high on the agenda for any hotelier.
A good night's sleep for allA peaceful room that allows a good night's sleep will result in contented guests. The recommended sound level for a hotel room is 30-35dB at night, but busy city centre locations can easily reach 70 -80dB. With an average window reducing sound levels by about 30dB, additional protection is essential.
Acoustic testing of Selectaglaze secondary glazing systems demonstrate the high performance necessary to maintain room occupancy levels and avoid licences being revoked . Using standard glass noise levels can be reduced by 42-45dB and up to 50dB if higher performance glass is introduced. This will ensure the peace and quiet needed for that all important period of sleep for all.
