Mr. Saurabh Agarwal, MG Road, Gurgaon

Most of the time story is built around the house...but have you ever heard story is built around  doors/windows...yes it happened in gurgaon with Mr. Saurabh Agarwal working @ Google India. 

I remembered when he invited me to his home based in Essel tower on MG road. His first concern was  as he was originally from Kolkata & used to travel a lot from Delhi, he needed his home to be dust proof & also peace of mind by screeching noise created via sharp turning of metro rail & heavy traffic noise from Iffco crossing but poor aluminium windows/ doors which were having leakage at all corners are making their night worse to sleep & cleaning was arduous task. 
 What we have done... First we suggested them to have only casement or, openable doors/windows system all around the house as sliding doors/ windows can not be 100 % leakage proof...also we suggested to have acoustic glass ( Acoustic Laminated glass has high level of noise insulation upto 50 dB-Rw ).

But as usual first reaction of new customer i.e.Mr. Saurabh was that it is costlier & out of Budget...but don't he needs peace of mind, absolutely he needs but what about cheap competition as others were cheaper...we again worked on price & suggested 12 mm glass ( Rw ; C ,C tr- 35 dB ) with VEKA AD series ( acoustic design-Rw ; C, Ctr- 42 dB).  ( by the way it is a myth that double glazed glass is good for noise insulation as 12 mm glass has better noise insulation values than double glazed glass) but we did not compromised on fittings. Because only good  fittings makes uPVC doors & windows better product than wooden & aluminium windows....
