All Noise Control ew sliding acoustical window the control booth has never been more versatile. The unique acoustical window opens to allow for easy communication, then when closed the window provides complete sound control—exactly as you would experience with a non-sliding window. The Acoustic Window is a highly important concept in acoustics. It refers to the part of the ear where sound waves first impact the eardrum. The size and shape have a significant effect on hearing. For example, a smaller Acoustic Window results in a higher pitch, while a larger Acoustic Window results in a lower pitch. The Acoustic Window also affects how loud a sound appears to be. A sound that is too loud can cause damage to the ear, so it is important to understand how it affects hearing.
To create this remarkable window, Krieger utilized over 80 years of acoustical door experience to develop a window with an STC-rated seal and sliding track. Additionally, as with every Krieger product, this window is custom manufactured to the size, style, and finish requested. In order to reduce the effect, it is important to identify the sources of noise and reflections and take steps to minimize them.
