When choosing doors with glass you need to get as much mass and air gap as possible.

You need to look for STC and OITC ratings, the higher the number the better the reduction.

Milgard has a slider that performs quite well .

Hi

Are sliding doors with laminate or standard swing double doors with laminate insert better for sound attenuation?

Thanks

Permabond is a type of cement board, you are trying to load as much mass as you can afford..the heavier the better.

Sorry for my ignorance. 1/2" what?

#2 lb mass loaded vinyl or a couple layers of 1/2" permabond

What do you suggest for mass?
the interior wall is behind kitchen cabinets so have to add outside.
68
ok so not exposed directly to outside but in a wall...ok great ...

you can use standard Roxul batt insulation and double frame construction followed by lots and lots of mass.

The heavier the better for low frequency attenuation.

Outside.  Opening up existing 2x4 walls to hopefully staggered studs or double studs.

what is your project for outside? kind of hard to make recommendations without all of the information.
