Does anyone know the best way to block the noise of a basketball bouncing on cement,
and kids screaming? My next-door neighbors are very loud outside my bedroom window.
My windows are single-pane.
At this link, https://www.quora.com/Affordable-Housing-Why-are-windows-bad-at-blocking-sound,
it says double-pane windows actually won’t help: “…this extra weight…creates a resonance due to the mass
of air trapped between the two panes. At the frequency this resonance occurs the level of sound isolation
will drop dramatically, meaning any benefit from having the extra glass is undone.
Therefore, though it seems counterintuitive, a 6mm single pane of glass is as good as,
if not slightly better, overall than a 6mm/12mm/6mm double glazing unit.”
Thanks for any suggestions. Specific brands and model names (windows, insulation, etc.)
will be welcome!
