SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 14, 2006
AMSCO Windows announces the new Serenity™ Series line of sound control windows that is aimed at reducing unwanted noise in the home. Sound problems in the home can occur from many sources including the close proximity to transportation areas like busy highways or freeways, rail lines and airports as well as kids playing and dogs barking. Serenity Series sound control windows offers a range of Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings that reduce these unwanted sounds.
“Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of noise pollution within their homes,” says Steve Sullivan, director of marketing for AMSCO Windows. “Our Serenity Series windows are designed to help reduce these unwanted sounds so that people can enjoy some peace and quiet or simply be able to sleep later.”
The Serenity Series are engineered with various glass widths using a triple glazing design to achieve different STC ratings. STC ratings for the Serenity Series range from 40 to 47—much higher compared to a typical dual-glazed window’s STC rating of 28 to 35.
“A homeowner will clearly notice a change by increasing the STC rating of their windows by 5 points,” says Sullivan. “Whereas an increase of 10 STC rating points, the noise will be perceived only half as loud.”
The triple glazing design of the Serenity Series also affords greater energy efficiency over dual glazed windows due to an increased frame width and an extra glazing panel. U-values as low as .22 are achievable in the Serenity Series with Low-E glass. The entire Serenity Series line has earned the ENGERGY STAR® because of its great energy performance.
“Energy savings is on every homeowner’s mind these days,” said Sullivan. “While the Serenity Series is designed to suppress noise, the inherent design makes the window increasingly thermally efficient—a real benefit that homeowners will feel both in comfort and in savings.”
Made from the same quality material as AMSCO’s other vinyl lines, the Serenity Series is available in white in Single Hung, Horizontal Slider, and Picture window styles. And, Serenity Series is backed by the same great Lifetime Warranty you’ve come to expect from AMSCO.
