Plastic sheeting could be of two main types namely sealed system and secondary glazing.  In case of sealed system, there are two sheets of glass which are combined together and an air space is kept between the glasses. Generally very low density air is maintained and these systems are not ideal if you are looking for sound insulation. In this case, the glass differs in terms of density which ranges from 3-10 mm. One can purchase these glasses from the local merchants. Closed devices could be of two main types of shapes which could be either spaced device having 2 panes of glass of similar size and another one is known as stepped system where the internal one is of smaller size.
