Sliding glass doors
« on: March 27, 2012, 05:23:30 PM »

I have some sliding glass doors and was wondering if a clear dampening film would make much difference.

If so, does anyone know anywhere online I could buy? I've been searching with no luck
Thanks.

direct applied films only change the resonance of the glass itself, we view it more like a band-aid approach...10% change at best.

The best solution is to install a second slider with an air gap...far better reduction 50%+

If you add a slider or change the existing one, make sure that the glass is either laminated or thermopane for better soundproofing.
