Which Sliding Glass Door is better
« on: October 08, 2010, 04:14:59 AM »
I'm hoping for a recommendation for which sliding glass door will give better noise abatement.
The first one has a vinyl frame; is double pane with what looks like two 1/8" glass and maybe a 1/4" airspace.
The second has a aluminum frame with a 1/2" thick single pane. of the two ..which is better?
Also is there a known brand...make..model that performs well for sound attenuation?
Thanks for your input.

Milgard quiet line... Buy the slider with the highest STC rating you can find...If they dont have a STC rating dont buy it.
