Noise Based Sleep Deprivation Linked to Obesity. Is a Possible Solution Your Windows?

RENO, Nev., December 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Noise is a known factor for a loss of sleep and new studies show that sleep deprivation is linked to increases in obesity. Most people need between seven and eight hours of uninterrupted sleep a day. Being in a noisy environment can reduce the quantity and quality of a person’s sleep cycle leading to a state of sleep deprivation. “There are some people who are more resistant to the effects of sleep deprivation than others,” says Stuart Quan, MD, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School’s division of sleep medicine. “Functionally, they’re okay, but metabolically, they may not be doing okay. The solution (to sleep deprivation) is not going out and drinking a couple of cans of... Read More →

The Link Between Noise Pollution and Heart Disease

RENO, Nev., October 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The stress of constant noise is much more than an annoyance or a cause for a lack of sleep. It has been independently linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease in a German study of more than 4,000 individuals. Experts now see that noise pollution plays a significant role in increasing certain contributors to conditions like atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. To assess an individual’s risk for cardiovascular issues, researchers at the Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine used a measure of arterial hardening known as “thoracic aortic calcification” (TAC). When the data was complete, noise pollution was found to increase TAC scores by 8 percent. People who live near 24-hour businesses, like airports, truck stops,... Read More →

Health Risks of Noise Pollution Addressed by Noise Blocking Add-on WIndows

RENO, Nev., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — It is a significant cause of sleep deprivation, stress, hypertension, and heart risk. The problem is noise pollution and it invades our work places and homes constantly.

A Decade of Silence Brought to you by Soundproof Windows

  In 1998, what started out as a desperate attempt to silence traffic noise turned into a crusade to bring peace and quiet to noise sufferers everywhere.   RENO, NV (PRWEB) December 16, 2008 — Ten years ago, Soundproof Windows Founder and President, Randy Brown, leased a house next to the 24 freeway in Lafayette, California. As he had just moved there from another state, he had no idea that it was one of the most heavily traveled commuter routes in the San Francisco Bay Area, but by that time, it was too late. “The noise was unbearable and I was unable to get out of the lease,” he said. Frustrated and sleep deprived, he spent countless hours of research and engineering to solve the... Read More →

Dan Bernstein – Pane & Suffering

Published by PE.com, The Press Enterprise April 18, 2007 I never pegged March’s Joint Clown Act Authority and DHL for visionaries until Bernie Donahue sent me a copy of a postcard. “It’s a new twist on the 3 a.m. wake-up services,” he wrote. Soundproof Windows, a Bay Area concern, sent the postcard to Bernie’s Riverside abode. “Don’t replace your windows. Soundproof them. Reduce noise levels by 75-95 per cent.” Scott Ronsee, Soundproof’s marketing chief, says his company gets calls about “noise problems” ranging from parakeets to boom boxes. Planes? “An airport changing its flight path? Yeah, there’s a market.” (The DHL flight path, now charted six nights weekly, hasn’t really changed. It’s relatively new. And, to some residents, very, very old.) The Soundproof Windows biz... Read More →
