Rollershades at night?
« on: July 19, 2004, 05:34:20 AM »

I am contemplating installing some roller shades over some windows for noise reduction at night in a bedroom. They are hollow aluminum slates approximately 9/16 of an inch thick with a foam insert. The manufacture claims a 70 to 85% reduction in noise, but cannot provide a STC rate. Good idea or bad? Bull or not? I really want to reduce low frequency noises. Will this help? I already have triple pane glass and magnet plexiglass inserts. Any help is appreciated.

It would probably just be easier, and just as effective, to have an air purifier, white noise machine, or fan on all night, along with wearing ear plugs.  This is what I use to drown out noise while we sleep.  It works.

Thanks for the advice. I have tried ear plugs and white noise. And yes they work, but they are not ideal for me. I want to know if anyone has tried rollershades. Anyone?

They, like Jalousy windows would not work well due to the airspoace between the slats.  See other options at
