Helping Communities Reach Quiet  

For decades, Soundproof Windows has been working on a soundproofing process that would reduce outside noise and create an environment for homes and businesses that was tranquil and quiet. If you live in a busy city center, next to an airport, or a railroad, or even a construction site, it can be hard to relax in your home if you are consistently being interrupted by noise. Take for example the Noise Free America: A Coalition to Promote Quiet. This coalition was dedicated to making their communities ‘noise free.’ The process of creating a quiet zone took years of planning, discussions, public comments, and rigorous testing and improving of safety crossings, but in the end a Quiet Zone was implemented in Battle Creek which greatly improved...

Soundproofing Windows in Hotels Reduces Overall Cost

Are you a hotel owner? Or maybe you’re someone who has slept in a room that was located in a noisy hotel? Either way, you can see how soundproofing windows in hotels have resulted in increased satisfaction and reduced energy costs. A great hotel is one located close to the heart of the city you’re staying in – allowing you access to food, fun and new friends.

STC Ratings are Important and Here’s Why
