windows are provided by Mayeco for exceptional soundproofing
of your home or business. Please call (800)

locked outside where it belongs after you have contacted Mayeco to
install your Sound-tite windows, magnetic window insulation.
Below, we will describe some of the details regarding sound proofing
your home with Mayeco window insulation.
glass is used on the building interior, the sound transmission
classification (STC) value can be used to categorize the glass
performance. The STC rating is a single-number rating system for
interior building partitions and viewing windows. The STC rating is
derived by testing in accordance with ASTM E90, 'Laboratory Measurement
of Airborne sound Transmission of Building Partitions".
The STC value is achieved by applying the Transmission loss (TL) values
to the STC reference contour of ASTM E413, "Determination of Sound
Transmission Class". The STC rating is a basis for glass selection.
Its original intent was to quantify interior building partitions, not
exterior wall components. As a result, it is not recommended for glass
selection of exterior wall applications, since the single-number rating
was achieved under a specific set of laboratory conditions.
An STC rating is a standard defined by the American Society for Testing
and Materials (ASTM). A higher STC rating indicates a greater sound-reducing
effect. For example, single-pane glass has an STC of 26,
which is considered low because voices from outside can be clearly
heard. Dual-pane insulating glass, with an air space between the panes,
has an STC of 28. Even better, laminated glass has an STC of 35.
Laminated glass can help homeowners turn down the volume indoors.
At this STC rating, loud speech from outside can be heard but not
clearly understood. Sound-tite Windows with an Optical grade acrylic
with a thickness of .236" (1/4") combined with a single
pane of glass has an STC Rating of 41. At this STC rating, traffic
noise is reduced by over 80-90% to the human ear.
Sound-tite Windows with an Optical grade acrylic with a thickness of
.236" (1/4") combined with a double pane of glass has an STC
Rating of 48-53. At this STC, traffic noise is reduced by over 90-100%
to the human ear and loud talking is completely eliminated.
This is one of the many ways that
Mayeco can help you achieve complete sound proofing for your home or
business by installing magnetic window insulation for any type of
window, while preserving the attractive appearance of your windows.
