Soundproof Glass By Bear Glass

 

A soundproof glass is a glass that prevents sound from penetrating from one side to the other. In most cases, those desiring soundproof glass are those who live near noisy environments, such as airports of busy roads. While glass, in various configurations, may do a good job of preventing sound from getting through, it should be noted that soundproof glass, at least from a general consumer standpoint, is all but impossible to acquire.

Sounds like this is exactly what you need!

There are a number of different ways to make glass soundproof. The first involves simply making the glass thicker. The thicker the glass is, the stiffer it becomes and, as a natural consequence, less prone to vibration. In such cases, the sound is naturally reduced. Another option is to insulate the glass with some other material, or perhaps just put an empty area in between two panes of glass.

To make soundproof glass completely capable of blocking all sound would be prohibitively expensive and likely not recommended for windows. The glass would need to be extremely thick and would be very heavy, perhaps overwhelming any material used in a typical window frame.

Do you hear what we are saying to you?

The most common place to find soundproof glass is a sound studio, where it is important for music and other types of recordings to have a quiet environment. However, even then the glass is not completely able to withstand all sounds.

When Buying Glass, Buy American… Buy Bear Glass!!!

When trying to cut costs, many companies weigh their options with buying products overseas as opposed to buying American quality products. There are many things to consider when making your decision. Bear Glass is definitely biased when it comes to this subject  but we will try to stick with the facts in this article.

China’s manufacturing advantages remain formidable. With factory wages averaging $1.26 an hour, the mainland is still hard to beat for labor-intensive products such as toys and apparel. China is also rising fast in industries like solar power modules and cars, thanks to strong domestic demand and generous government incentives.

Cost is usually the major driver in a company’s decision to purchase parts and products from abroad. Yet in a 2008 Pricewaterhouse-Coopers survey of retail and consumer-goods companies, one-quarter of respondents said they could not quantify actual savings. Many tracked transportation, customs, and warehousing costs. But quality and reliability of vendors often went unmeasured.

I said it was tough to decide what to do about Chinese-made products if price matters. This led to an outcry from customers, who said among other things “you get what you pay for” and “have you thought about the poor living conditions of the people who make this cheap stuff?”

There is a simple truth to this debate:  It’s easy to stick with American-made when quality matters.

Now we do understand that Chinese labor is much cheaper. (The last I heard, a good glass worker in China makes about $300-$400 per month.) But Americans still do better work. They do it on time. They speak English. They understand what the word “quality” means. And, we don’t have to pay a 20% to 30% surcharge for shipping costs.

Like Bear Glass, a growing number of companies are moving beyond the usual considerations of labor and raw material costs in deciding where to produce goods to calculate the “total cost of ownership.” That means tallying expenses associated with things such as storage and delays. By this light, the so-called China price, which always seemed to be at least 40% below U.S. costs on everything from bedroom furniture to telecom gear, isn’t so low. In fact, China’s once-formidable edge in manufacturing has all but disappeared in some industries

Lots of other business owners are making the same discoveries that Bear Glass has mentioned. Language barriers, long delivery delays and confusion about how to produce the product to specifications are to name but a few.

We found a simple solution for our clients. Work with Bear Glass because we are a factory who speaks your language. Skip shipping hassles by buying inside your own country. And, work with people who understand what the word quality really means.

Bear Glass  is an all American company  that makes a better finished product than China for less money  based on quality and reliability.
