Dramatic Noise Reduction

The noise reduction ability of windows is most commonly measured using a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating. Standard single-pane windows have an STC rating of 20. A high-performance dual-pane window can have a STC rating of 26, while a Sunrise® dual-pane window tops the other brand’s window with an STC rating of 28. The Sunrise dual-pane window with the NRG option is in a class by itself, with a STC rating of 33!
