Topic: Laminate Glass for Wooden Windows

Hi
I have wooden window frames in my house, which are about 30mm thick. I would like to change the glass currently in these windows to laminate glass. The glass is currently of size 4mm.
I would like to have laminated windows, to reduce outside noise.
My questions are:
1) What is the recommended thickness of the window frame, if the laminate glass is about 9mm thick. (I am aware that just laminate glass will not reduce noise, but I cannot replace my wooden window frames without incurring cost and mess).
2) How much thickness of laminate glass can the current 30mm wooden frame hold. The wood is "honne"...that is what it is called here in Bangalore. The laminate glasses are available of size 9mm and 13mm and higher. So a 30mm thickness may or may not hold it.
3) What other solutions do we have to put in laminate glass to already existing windows.

Thank you
Ashok

Dear Ashok:

Keeping the same window frames, you have two options:

1) Install laminated glass instead of your current glass. You say that the thickness of the window frame is 30 mm. You can easily put 9 or 13mm glass in the frame depending upon the location of the glass slab within the 30 mm space. Usually the glass is not placed in the center of the space so the wooden beading that is holding the glass from outside will start to come more and more towards the outer side as we keep on increasing the glass thickness.

2) Second solution is to install two glass sheets per window. Let the current 4mm glass be at its place and remove the current wooden beading. Secure the 4mm glass with a new wooden beading about 4mm thick. Put another 8mm ordinary glass sheet against this 4mm beading. Finally secure this 8 mm glass with the original beading.

I hope it helps.
