Soundproof Windows has been in the soundproofing game for a few decades, and because of this, we’ve pretty much mastered our soundproofing technology.

Well, we can show you, here, but we’re happy to explain it. Soundproof Windows does not remove or replace your existing windows, and that was the goal.

Why Our Soundproof Windows Work

For many people, the search has been a long one for a soundproof window that works, and is affordable. We started our company because the market wasn’t offering a decent soundproofing window, and we had a problem in our own home. Search after search, trial, and error, we found nothing that could actually solve our problem. We found that dual paned windows were sadly inadequate at stopping sound, so we set to work. After extensive research on the subject and years of testing, we finally designed a very effective soundproof window, blowing dual paned windows out of the water by more than 10x! In-field installations proved it reduced noise by 75%, and we couldn’t locate any other company that had the success that we had.... Read More →

Preserving History of Historical Buildings & Windows

This article was featured on www.ccr-mag.com (http://www.ccr-mag.com/preserving-history-of-historical-buildings-windows/) Unique “soundproof” windows dramatically reduce outside noise and increase energy efficiency with a hands-off approach to the original windows “Windows are one of the most important and integral character-defining features of historic buildings,” states the D.C. Historic Preservation Review Board in its publication Window Repair and Replacement Preservation and Design Guidelines.  “They provide a sense of scale, craftsmanship, proportion and architectural styling.” As such, the primary objective of historic commissions and review boards, not to mention federal and local preservation statutes, is to ensure the existing windows remain intact whenever possible.  For this reason, repair is often recommended over replacement with more modern, double-paned windows that can quickly ruin a building’s character and charm. Repairing aging historic windows,... Read More →

Is this the Solution to Noisy Hotel Rooms?

This article was featured on Travel Pulse, or Travelpulse.com. (http://www.travelpulse.com/news/hotels-and-resorts/is-this-the-solution-to-noisy-hotel-rooms.html) Hotel Room Noise Solutions Location is oftentimes a catch-22 for hoteliers. While guests want to stay in premier destinations close to all of the attractions, they also covet peace and quiet inside of their hotel rooms. For some hotels, the inability to quell outside noise can result in crippling negative reviews. But building thicker walls and installing dual-pane windows aren’t quite enough to make a difference, so some hotels have turned to a proven, economical and realistic solution. Residence Inn Sandesta at Grand Boulevard Located along a busy street in Miramar, Florida, the Residence Inn Sandesta at Grand Boulevard was plagued by road noise that accounted for roughly three-quarters of its negative reviews on TripAdvisor....

Soundproofing Hotel Windows, Rather Than Replacing Them, Can Provide Competitive Edge

This article was featured in HPB Magazine (http://www.ccr-mag.com/preserving-history-of-historical-buildings-windows/) For hotels and motels located near noisy streets, highways, train tracks, airports or urban city walks, keeping external noise from penetrating into what should be the quiet, peaceful sanctuary of the guest room might seem an impossible task.With the cacophony of loud sirens, traffic, construction, garbage and delivery trucks, aircraft, and nearby nightlife, guests are often inundated with unwanted noise until the early morning hours. Even a raucous swimming pool or other common area open late for guests can be a continual source of aggravation.Such noise can make it difficult for guests to sleep soundly, if at all, during the night or for needed daytime naps. For those conducting business in their hotel room or simply relaxing,... Read More →

Poorly sealed... Read More →
