Hello from Thailand!
« on: December 19, 2011, 02:47:39 PM »

Hello everyone,
My name is Jonathan and I live in a condo in Samut Prakan which is just south of Bangkok in Thailand.
The noises that affects me are low-bass music from vehicles and skateboarders, both from the adjoining supermarket car park. My windows are cheap aluminum-framed single-pane glass and I have read on this forum about various solutions which I wasn't previously aware of such as window plugs, internal windows, new walls etc. I have to rule out double or triple glazing as, despite owning the unit, I can't remove the existing windows.
The problem I have is that the material I need are very hard to find in Thailand and I'm writing on the long-shot that someone on here has any experience or tips. There are no companies offering internal windows for me to buy, no companies like ******** selling mass-loaded vinyl or green glue caulk, I can find sheet acrylic but no magnetic or metal tape to make my own internal windows.
Best regards

Randy S

You can do the acrylic system, you will just have to figure out how you can make the airtight seal....find a type of framing and a pvc tape and make a compression seal against the acrylic and window box.

Thank you for the swift response, I apologize for mentioning the name of a company, I didn't mean to break any rules on my first post!
