| Noise Blocking, Soundproofing | quietcurtains

Rail transit is still very common when it comes to transporting cargo or passengers. If you live or work by a railway, the usefulness of this type of transportation is more than likely overlooked due to the unwanted noise this type of transportation can cause within a community. You are more than likely here looking for how to reduce railway noise or how to soundproof your house from the train noise. In some situations, on the inside of the home, the train might not be too bad, but maybe it’s the nighttime that you struggle to keep the unwanted noise out. We’ve come up with some advice on how to block train horn noise and how to reduce train noise in the house.

Double glazing on the windows facing the train line can help tremendously. Seals on the windows and doors can also be helpful. There is always the option to invest in major insulation for windows, doors, your walls and roof to cut down on noise. Another trick to soundproof train noise is putting up sound reflecting objects, outside like a fence, tall trees and shrubs that can help reflect the sound.

However, from a soundproof standpoint train horns are usually high frequency (you hear this as a high pitch), giving them a shorter wavelength. Consequently, they are easier to block with soundproofing curtains and other noise insulation products. At Quiet Curtains our STC 20 Quiet Curtains reduce noise by 20 decibels! Our soundproof curtains will also reduce reverberation and echo in a large room, as well as reduce interference from outside noise which is convenient since train noise quickly diminishes over distance
