Sliding glass doors are a staple in residential and commercial design for the openness, and great views they can bring to a room. Although functional, glass doors may only provide a thin barrier between a peaceful room, and the noisy elements of the outside world.
Soundproofing your home can range from a few simple improvements to an expensive and complex undertaking. There are three principles that stop noise — space, mass and dampening. Dampening being the “shock absorber” of the soundproofing world is one of the more controllable elements to stop noise. An increasingly popular but very expensive method of soundproofing sliding glass doors, involves installing a second window inside the window and the air space can help cut down on noise and energy costs, but results will vary according to style and quality.
Numerous studies have shown the adverse effects of noisy environments on sleep, learning, productivity and the overall quality of life.
