Title: Window Soundproofing
Post by: Sante Biordi on January 29, 2005, 11:53:46 PM
I have read up on soundproofing windows against traffic noise(motorcycles, etc), barking dogs within 30 feet, etc., in a residential neighborhood.

I have decided to use window grade plexiglass and fashion a sliding window so that I can get air in the room during good weather days. This is planned by using material to make a track so that the plexiglass slides the same way that sliding doors do.

My question is; what materials can I use or not use in making this track? Is wood and metal bad? how about a plastic track.  I have a 3" window sill to build on.

Hello Sante.
Magnet Seal makes a a type of window soundproofing which can be attached to the inside of the window. The additional acrylic panel is held on with a plastic molding and magnets. You apply a metal strip to the interior of the window and attach the molding, magnet plus acrylic panel.

It is proven effective.

Hope this helps!
