Got noisy neighbors or live on a busy street? QuietHome windows from Quiet Solution, of Sunnyvale, Calif., can help soundproof your home. Made with high-efficiency low-E Solaglass, fusion-welded frames and sashes, and advanced sealing techniques, the windows are able to reduce noise levels by 25 to 85 percent over traditional single- and dual-pane windows, without resorting to four-track frames (where you must open two sets of windows) or additions to existing windows - common methods of soundproofing. A measure known as STC, or sound transmission class, is used to rate noise reduction through a partition or window. STC ratings for typical windows range from 18 to 27, while some older metal windows that seal poorly are rated under 10 (higher STC ratings are better). QuietHome windows are available in three soundproofing levels: Relief, with STC ratings of 33 to 35; Serenity, with ratings of 38 to 42; and Solitude, with ratings of 45 to 52. Every 10 points reduces noise by 50 percent, so an STC 30 window will reduce noise 50 percent more than an STC 20 window. QuietHome windows are available in vinyl and fiberglass, in a variety of styles, including single- and double-hung, casement, bay and picture, as well as sliders, patio doors and French doors. The company also makes other soundproofing products, including QuietRock drywall and QuietWood engineered wood panels, so you can keep it quiet no matter how noisy it gets outside.
