Soundproofing windows - double pane? magnet?
« on: February 01, 2003, 12:02:47 AM »
I have bay windows in a bedroom, 2 are 30 x 72, 1 is 42 x 72.  It's on an extremely busy street.  Original windows in this 1908 Edwardian are double hung.  I'm getting quotes of around $2500 to do the three windows with wood, double hung, double paned laminated glass (the big one is magnum).  After all that money, I'm afraid I'm not going to get the really good soundproofing I need.  What do people think about using a magnetically mounted windows on the interior?  Or some other approach?  Thank you!

I believe the magnet sealed units are the way to go.  Check out the prices and specs.  I think you will be impressed with the noise reduction and insulating qualities.

What about in newer home situations. An old 1908 victorian has much thicker walls. Mine are 6" if that.
Will these magnetic windows work if I don't build out
the walls? Thanks
