Soundproof Windows are do more than just block noise, they provide extra insulation to your home, hassle free.
Our soundproof windows allow you to change the inside appearance of your windows without changing the outside appearance. Available in many custom colors (at an additional cost), our soundproof windows soften the often harsh brown-bronze color or appearance of your current windows.
In a double pane windows, the two pieces of glass are coupled within the same frame and vibrate together – like the two tynes of a tuning fork. The air space does very little to retard the vibrations. The glass is usually rather thin. The insulation values in double pane windows are much better than single pane windows. Also, glass has certain sound frequencies that harmonize with the glass. This makes the noise at that frequency nearly “invisible” to the glass, and the noise rushes through. This is the ‘sweet spot’ of the various thicknesses of glass.
Noise reduction percentages can be misleading, and like statistics, can lie. The basic problem is the human ear. As the environment gets quieter, the ear becomes more sensitive to noise. This means that some of the noise reduction provided is lost.
- Soundproof Windows can reduce the current noise levels by 95% or by 75%, and both statements will be true: one is the instrument measurement, while the other is the perceived noise reduction. Additionally, depending on actual noise levels, the noise reduction may be perceived as 100%.
- Double pane window sales people can say they stop the noise – and in some noise level environments they do.They can also say they reduce the noise over 50% – true by instrument reading compared to a poorly sealing window.
It is very expensive to get a perceived noise reduction of anything beyond 20% with replacement windows. The maximum available perceived noise reduction still does not exceed 50%. These numbers will not solve a noise problem.
Soundproof Windows do significantly MORE for significantly LESS cost.
Check out our Brochures!
Recording Studio Windows Our brochure on our new recording studio product line. Our vertical, slanted and operable studio windows and our studio sliding glass doors all have STC values in the 60’s. We set the new standard for high STC values that match or exceed the wall STCs.
Steel Door Brochure Our new award winning soundproof steel door is breaking records and setting higher standards for soundproofing. Our soundproof door is 1.75″ thick and has an STC value of 56+ (the previous world record was STC 53). Our soundproof door uses standard door hardware instead of the more expensive thick door hardware that our competitors must use. Check out our new soundproof steel doors – the advances and the clear soundproofing advantages are now available.
Architect Brochure Our AIA (American Institute of Architects) brochure with some technical details about our soundproof windows, including STC ratings, drawings and LEED referenced energy performance.
Hotel Brochure with Documented Energy Savings This brochure shows pictures of various hotel installations. We also document the energy savings achieved in a one year comparison study of energy savings from a Houston hotel.
