The sounds of modern life can be enjoyable – like children playing and laughing – or distracting – like trucks and buses rumbling by. Whether enjoyable or not, noise reduction windows should help keep as much of these sounds outside our home. Single pane windows, in particular, are simply not designed to reduce the outside noise that impacts the peace and quiet of our home. But Custom Windows can help! While a dual pane window is clearly better than a single pane window, a major reason is because of the space between the two panes of glass. A third pane will, at best, do very little to help sound and may actually reduce the noise reduction because it reduces the space between the panes! The most common measurement of sound reduction in building materials is the Sound Transmission Coefficient or STC. STC is a numerical rating in decibels (dB) that relates to how much a building material will reduce noise coming through it. Simply stated, the higher an STC rating, the more noise reduction there is. It is important to note that a difference of one or two points is not very noticeable. A difference of 3 to 5 points is, however, and a difference of 10 points is normally perceived as the outside noise level being reduced by half.
