SilentGuard® Sound Reduction

SilentGuard® Sound Reduction Windows

provide enhanced noise abatement performance to the SilentGuard Window. Sounds are measured in decibels (dBs). An STC rating is assigned to a window or door to designate its capacity to block sound. The higher the decibel the higher the STC rating needed. Typical windows have STC ratings in the 25-28 range. By comparison, the Silent Guard Window family has an STC rating of 34, reducing exterior sound by 43% when compared to the average single pane aluminum window.

Turn the Outside Volume Down with SilentGuard®

When sound control is needed, SilentGuard Windows offer advanced noise control performance for the majority of annoying sounds that routinely affect us all. From barking dogs to loud lawn mowers, the STC 34 rated SilentGuard option is designed to control these most common nuisances.

SilentGuard® is also available in these additional styles:

Sound Transmission Class (STC)

Sound transmission class (STC) ratings give a single value to acoustical performance for a window. STC is determined by a weighted average of Sound Transmission Loss (TL) values taken over 16 frequencies, which are fitted to a curve in a method defined by the ASTM E413 Classification Standard for Rating Sound Insulation. The higher the STC value, the better the rating and the better the performance.

Energy Efficient Glass Options

Thermal Windows & Doors is proud to manufacture vinyl replacement windows and doors with the ENERGY STAR® label. Every ENERGY STAR qualified window is independently certified by the National Fenestration Ratings Council, or NFRC, to perform at or above strict levels set by the U.S. Department of Energy. The rating gives you the tools needed to compare window performance.

The glass system in the SilentGuard Window is specially designed to provide noise abatement through the use varying glass thicknesses. As sound waves travel through different types and thicknesses of glass, they are broken into different frequencies, thereby reducing their intensity.Silent Guard Double Hung Windows feature a dual-glaze 13/16-inch thick insulating glass unit, with one lite of 3/16” glass and one lite of 1/8” glass.

Peak PerformanceTM Glass

Our Peak Performance Glass system combines one lite of high-performance Low-E Glass and one lite of clear glass, sealed together with a warm-edge spacer system. The air space between the two is enhanced with Argon, and insulating gas. Consider the Peak Performance Eco Glass system which combines one lite of high-performance triple coat Low-E Glass and one lite of clear glass, for climates where solar control is important.
