Acoustic and folding on show
11th June 2019
Hailsham-based trade fabricator TRADESMITH and certification body BLUESKY used the FIT Show to highlight the impact of noise on everyday lives, using an ‘A’ rated acoustic Deceuninck window.
Similar to the familiar energy-rating system with its rainbow labels, Bluesky rates windows according to their effectiveness in blocking out noise. Windows are graded E up to A+ for the most effective at blocking out noise, so homeowners can buy the right level of protection to exclude the noise they suffer. The Tradesmith windows used on the Bluesky stand were both acoustic ‘A’ rated.
A Tradesmith-fabricated Invisifold casement window was featured on hardware-supplier VBH’s stand. Invisifold is a system that converts existing windows and doors into individual panels that can slide and fold to leave a large unobstructed opening.
