Blocking street noise.....
« on: May 02, 2006, 01:48:27 PM »

I recently moved into an apartment in downtown Boston.  The apartment is on a very busy street so I hear all the cars, buses, even people yelling.  The noise is coming in through my industrial sized windows.  I am renting so I don't want to spend money installing new windows but is there some kind of sound blocking curtains or drapes I can get?  Would they be effective?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Roman,

There are sound damping ready-made curtains and black(non see through) and clear vinyl sound barrier materials available at

And for a discussion of sound control option for windows see the discussion at
