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.
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.
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.
