WHY CHOOSE SOUNDPROOF WINDOWS?

Whether it’s traffic on the freeway, the noise of your neighbors, or the chirping of birds, if you don’t have soundproof windows, some noise from the outside world is sure to interfere with your daily activities, especially if you’re in a bedroom or office or workspace. While you can’t control what’s going on outside, you can block or at least reduce noise by soundproofing windows by using the techniques detailed in this article, alone or in combination. Read on to learn that how soundproof windows is your secret to attaining inner peace!

  • Solve Your Noise
    Problem

    A Soundproof Window uses cutting-edge technology to dramatically Reduce Noise Levels by 50-70% and improve your quality of life.

  • Create a Sound
    Oasis

    Now you can sleep late, enjoy solitude, and reduce stress. In short, you can make your home your silent oasis.

 

HOW DO NOISE REDUCING WINDOWS WORK?

Noise Travels in Two Different Ways
– Through the Air and Through Materials.

There are two measurement methods- by Sound Transmission Class (STC) and Outdoor/Indoor Transmission Class (OITC).

Today, most standard insulated windows have an STC rating around 26. These double-glazed windows feature two layers of five-millimeter-thick glass. By adding more window glass, there is more insulation, which helps dampen outside noise.

 

 

5 SMART TIPS FOR SOUNDPROOFING WINDOWS

While completely soundproof windows don’t exist, there are a number of factors that can help you soundproof your home.
  • 01/

    Upgrade single-pane windows to a dual-or triple-pane design.

    When you add glass panes to the design of a window, the amount of noise that is able to travel through is reduced. Single-sided glass has the least amount of material to dampen sound waves, and its STC is between 26 and 28, so they allow the most noise into your home. In contrast, the space between the individual panes of a double-glazed window helps block the vibration of outdoor sound through the glass, allowing for greater noise reduction benefits, with an STC of 26 to 35. Compared with a single-glazed window with an STC of 28, a double-glazed window with a thickness of 35 can reduce the noise of passing vehicles to 35 decibels, which is 7 decibels lower than that of a single-glazed window (70-35). While that might not seem like a lot, to the listener, a 7-decibel difference results in about an 87% drop in perceived volume.

    Seal gaps along windows with acoustic caulk.

    Small gaps between window frames and interior walls can allow outdoor noise to enter your home and make your windows not perform up to STC ratings. An easy way to seal these voids is to fill them with acoustic caulk such as Green Glue Acoustic Sealant. This latex-based soundproofing product reduces sound transmission and maintains the STC of the window, but still allows you to open and close the window.

    The application of acoustic caulk is the easiest and most economical method. If there is already silicone filler around the window frame, use a putty knife to remove it. Cut a quarter inch opening in the top of the sonic caulk tube with a utility knife, load the tube into the caulk gun, and pull the gun’s trigger to apply a thin bead of caulk in the gap between the interior window frame and interior wall.

    Hang sound-dampening curtains to block sound.

    To reduce noise and reduce harsh glare, hang soundproof curtains. sound-dampening curtains are made of thick, heavy fabric such as velvet and usually have a lining made of vinyl or a similar material that absorbs sound as it enters a room. These curtains also minimize echoes so that any sound you do hear indoors fades out quickly. Because these curtains dampen but do not block sound, they’re better suited for light noise pollution that may interrupt sleep, such as crickets or birds chirping.

    Noise Reducing Blinds or Shutters

    The more material you put between the source of noise pollution and the interior, the better your acoustic performance will be. Installing blinds of any type can help reduce noise. Special honeycomb blinds are the best type of blinds for sound insulation. Their honeycomb structure allows them to retain more air, preventing air from getting inside. For better acoustics, choose one with double cells.

    Soundproofing with
    Furniture

    You can help soundproof your windows by placing the right furniture near them. This DIY approach won’t make a noticeable difference, but it can help larger the noise-reduction benefits of your other windows.

    Put a thick rug next to your window to absorb some of the sound waves. You can also place a heavy sofa, chair or other furniture near the window. This thick, heavy material absorbs some annoying sound waves and helps reduce the effects of vibration from outside noise.

 
  • Install Solid-Core Doors

    Solid-core doors offer better insulation from sound than hollow-core doors. A well-fit solid door will significantly reduce sound transmission, but it will not completely wipe it out. To complete the job, seal all the gaps around the door at jambs, header, and sill.

  • Switch to a DC-Powered Garage Door Opener

    Automatic garage doors can generate a staggering amount of noise. Direct-drive openers with a direct-current motor have fewer moving parts, and the DC technology allows soft starts and stops, all of which contribute to a quieter opening system.
