Soundproof and Energy Efficient.
Now, That’s Living Comfortably!
any room in your home or office with our soundproof, energy-efficient window inserts.
Imagine blocking up to 75% of low pitch noise (big trucks, A/C compressors, etc.) and up to 95% of
high pitch noise (bus brakes, pool pumps, etc.).1
What Are Soundproof Window Inserts?
First of all, they are
not replacement windows.2 Instead, they are laminated glass
window treatments that install on the inside of your window
opening, in-between your existing windows and your blinds, shades, shutters, curtains
or drapes. They provide noise insulation as well as energy insulation.
- Insulates against unwanted noises and sounds like
traffic, loud music, a/c units, barking dogs, noisy
neighbors, trains, etc.
- Insulates against
energy loss, both cold and heat.
- Custom made to fit your existing
windows, even if you have arches, eyebrows, triangles,
- Meets fire code for both egress and
- Compliant with HOA regulations because they
don't change the exterior look of your home or office.
- Reduces the ultraviolet (UV) light that fades carpets and
- Usually Installs in One Day or Less
- Typically costs 50% less than soundproof replacement windows.
- NO Removal of Your Old Windows
- NO Messy Construction
- Ideal for both Residential and Commercial windows
- Reduces Window Condensation
- Eliminates Drafts and Allergens
How They Work
The air gap that is created between the soundproof window insert and the
existing window produces an insulated Sound TrapTM where sound waves are
absorbed, reflected and cancelled. The result is a much lower volume of
sound that makes it through the Sound TrapTM into the room.
The air gap also reduces energy loss by 60% per window.
The seal of our soundproof window inserts is very important
because sound can act like water, seeping through openings. Our infiltration
rate is less than .01 cfm/lineal foot, which far exceeds the
International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Please note that
"soundproof" drapes or curtains typically do not
have a seal around them, hence allowing sound to enter
the edges of drapes or curtains unabated.
Our sound reduction values use the
Transmission Class (STC) scale which tests a series of low to high
frequencies at the same loudness to find an average.
Our Soundproof Window inserts have an STC rating of 42 if you have an
existing single-pane window, and 48 if you have an existing double-pane
Three Styles of Inserts
Operating Insert - slides up/down or left/right
This insert is the most convenient for those who frequently open the windows
on the noisy side of the building, but is the most expensive because it has
moving parts. It is slightly less effective than our other styles simply
because the sliding part of the window must be free to move.
Single Piece Insert - removable single panel
This insert is the most effective and least expensive because it
has no moving parts. It is the best choice for those who rarely open the
windows on the noisy side of the building, and want the maximum sound
Two-Piece Insert - removable dual panels
This insert is a cross between the Operating Insert and the Single
panel. It is the best choice for those who
occasionally open the windows on the noisy side of the building.
Where Are They Made?
We are a Texas company that manufactures and installs only in Texas. We service residential
and commercial properties in all major Texas metro areas - Houston, Austin,
Dallas, Ft. Worth - and areas nearby and in-between.
Prices for residential Soundproof Window Inserts are
usually between $22 and $58 per square
foot, including installation and tax. Pricing depends on
size, volume, existing window
treatments, shape and installation. For example,
three 3'x6' inserts are approximately 20% less per insert than just one. Arched windows are about 10%
more expensive than rectangular windows because they take much more time to
cut and install.
Prices for commercial Soundproof Window Inserts vary
even more (both lower and higher). For example, window volumes and sizes are usually much higher
than residential applications, reducing prices significantly. But, access to
windows may be much more difficult, driving prices higher. Our hotel
installations are a good example of this, i.e. many large windows, yet
limited access to available rooms.
Installation and Timing
In most cases we can install your soundproof window inserts within
two-three weeks of receiving your 50% down payment. They usually install in one to
two days, depending on volume and accessibility.

My biggest reason for buying window inserts was for sound. I live in a neighborhood
with lots of children and after they were installed, I was able to relax, read or watch TV without any distractions.
Also, a tree had fallen and broken one of my windows this year. Not only did the interior storm window keep the
broken glass from coming in to the house, it kept all of the rain out too. As far as the energy savings, they have
paid for themselves many times over.

I can't believe how much cooler the rooms are now with our window
especially the ones that face west. One of them was set up as an office and I dreaded working in there during
the day due to the heat. You either had to turn your air conditioning thermostat down (for the whole house) or turn
the ceiling fan on high, which blew your papers all around. Now it's totally comfortable! An added plus is the
sound from the street and a nearby freeway is gone.

I live in a 1920's bungalow in the
Montrose area with beautiful original windows..however they
are drafty.. you can see the curtains move. Not any more. I
stand by them on cold days now and can not tell it's cold,
which means I can leave my curtains open. One of my concerns
was appearances, as I am all about not cheapening the
historical look of my house. The Sun and Sound window frames are so small, if I don't point
them out to visitors, they don't realize I have them. I had two rooms put in as a trial and
immediately called them back to do the rest of the rooms. Having these installed is much cheaper
to what replacing the windows would entail in cost and time. The crew was efficient and fast.
Took one afternoon each time to install the windows.
