best solution for large sliding glass door?
« on: December 29, 2018, 06:27:55 PM »

I have a large sliding glass door, approx 120" x 78", which unfortunately faces a school playground. playground's a good distance away but children are extremely loud so it's a problem anyways.

I'm wondering what the best solution for this is. most solutions I've seen for windows involves adding another "window" on the interior to create an air gap, which seems like it's going to be...slightly more difficult for a sliding glass door.

I'm wondering how effective replacing the door with an impact glass door would be since I live on the east coast in a hurricane-prone area anyways. I've also considered just replacing the door with a fixed window and then maybe the double-window thing would work, it already remains closed about 99% of the time anyways, it's a door out to the front of the house, not the back, about 10 feet from the front door.

anyone have any suggestions, ideas of how much this might end up costing, etc.?

I can not give you an idea of cost but you are correct about the double sliders back to back.
That has been the only solution I have seen with the exception of a high 40+ STC rated slider replacement.
