Frequently Asked Questions

Other Windows vs. Soundproof Windows

What do your windows offer that dual pane windows don't?

What is the difference in sound-stopping ability between my single pane windows, dual pane replacements and your Soundproof Windows?

My friends say dual paned windows are the best way to go, offer the best insulation and sound stopping available. They have never heard of using a second window, and think dual paned would be the best way to go. How do you respond to that?


What do your windows offer that dual pane windows don't?

Soundproof Windows improve on virtually all the benefits available from double paned windows, plus more:

  • Ten times better for noise control
  • Better insulation than any double pane window
  • Earthquake safe glass that does not shatter
  • 99.9% of harmful color-fading UV light is removed
  • Security -- a second window that is hard to break is an excellent deterrent
  • Easy installation -- no need to tear up and repair the outside of your home
  • No mess or construction required

What is the difference in sound-stopping ability between my single pane windows, double pane replacements and your Soundproof Windows?
If the noise level you perceive now is 100 units, then double paned windows will reduce that to about 65 or 70. Soundproof Windows will reduce it to about 25.

If you installed both double paned and Soundproof Windows, it would reduce it to about 10 or 15.

More improvements are possible, but by then your walls will be letting in more noise.

For extreme situations we install a third window and can reduce the above number to less than 5. That is the "perceived" drop in sound.

In truth, the drop in sound is significantly higher - as high as 99%. The human ear constantly adjusts its own sensitivity as the sound volume comes up or down.

For many years double paned windows have been the only option available. Most window companies do not offer other choices. Soundproof Windows are new! Soundproof Windows are not double paned windows - they are better. This is scientifically tested and proven.

Please see our Noise Comparison page which compares the sound-stopping ability of different windows vs. Soundproof Windows.
