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 →

Your Home SectionLaminated Windows Keep Out the Din By Jay Romano Published March 11, 2007 Excerpt GOOD windows keep out rain and snow, and better windows keep out cold, wind and heat.

National Noise Epidemic Calls for Soundproofing

Ever increasing noise levels impact millions more each year, causing increased stress, disturbed sleep patterns and a deteriorating quality of life. FREMONT, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2005 — Without soundproofing, peace and quiet is almost impossible to achieve. The US Census Bureau estimates a population rise of 5% by 2010, which is a major contributor to the noise problem. Additionally, air traffic is expected to grow 4.3% annually through 2015 and automobile ownership is projected to grow over 15% by 2010 in some areas. The escalation in noise has resulted in dozens of noise-related lawsuits against next door neighbors, airports, railroads, nightclubs, supermarkets and dog owners, citing everything from noise-induced hearing loss, non-physical stress and annoyance, noise pollution, to disturbing the peace and quiet. Many... Read More →

Noise enters the home through your windows and doors. The walls are always better at stopping noise than your windows. So, the first place to look is your windows and glass doors. Whether you have the older single pane windows or the newer dual pane windows, you can do more to stop the... Read More →

Soundproof Windows Reverse Silicon Valley Exodus Trend

Quiet Time Bringing Peace and Calm Back to the House By Ann Marie Moriarty Excerpt …But local homeowners can get a product with a long history of working in existing homes. It’s called the Soundproof Window, and although it’s made in California, more than 90 percent of sales take place via the Internet (www.soundproofwindows.com). Bob Gray, executive vice president of Soundproof Windows in Antioch, Calif., describes his window as a very thick laminated glass — glass with a plastic layer between glass layers — in an aluminum frame. There’s a sound-deadening system built into the frame, with spring-loaded channels to keep the glass still, so it can’t vibrate. There’s also a foam gasket between the frame and the wall, and caulk seals the unit inside... Read More →
