Weatherstripping for Windows and Doors

Weatherstripping is an affordable and simple solution to seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors, blocking the entry of external noise. Self-adhesive weatherstripping tapes or strips can be easily applied to the perimeter of windows and doors, creating a secure seal. It not only helps reduce noise but also improves energy efficiency by preventing drafts. Ensure that you choose weatherstripping materials that are specifically designed for soundproofing for optimal results. SoundAway offers Noiseproofing Sealants, or Acoustic Caulking, to help seal gaps along your doors and windows. See our selection today.

Window and Door Seals

In addition to weatherstripping, installing window and door seals offers extra protection against noise infiltration. These seals, made of rubber or foam, create an airtight seal when the window or door is closed, reducing sound transmission through gaps and cracks. These acoustical door seals are available in various forms, such as surface compression seals. Check the condition of existing seals and replace them if they have become worn out or damaged. You can purchase these sound-absorbing window and door seals online at SoundAway today.

Soundproof Doors

Doors can be significant sources of noise leakage due to gaps around the perimeter or insufficient insulation. Here are a few options for soundproofing doors:

  • Door Sweeps: Install door sweeps along the bottom edge of doors to seal the gap between the door and the floor. This helps prevent sound from entering or escaping through the bottom gap.

  • Door Seals and Gaskets: Apply adhesive door seals or gaskets around the edges of the door to create a tight seal when closed. This helps minimize noise transmission through gaps and cracks. SoundAway's Acoustic Door Seals are extremely effective at eliminating noise from around the edges of doors.

  • Soundproof Doors: Perhaps one of the best ways to decrease noise is with acoustic doors. Our QuietSpec Acoustic Doors aim to eliminate most noise in home and office spaces. Made from the highest quality materials and coming in a variety of sizes and styles, you can have gorgeous doors that afford you a wonderful quiet space. Check them out today.

Soundproof Windows

Soundproofing studio windows are specifically engineered to reduce both outside noise entering the studio and sound leakage from the interior. They are typically double-paned or even triple-paned, with a layer of air or insulating gas in between each pane. This design helps to block external sounds, such as traffic noise or construction, that can interfere with recording sessions.
