Reduce outside noise from trains, traffic, or your neighbor’s barking dog with acoustic window inserts. Like other Indow grades, Acoustic Grade inserts simply press into existing window frames. These indoor storm windows seal out drafts and save energy, with the added bonus of blocking up to 70% of outside noise.*
With no hardware required, Indow inserts don’t damage the existing window. This makes them a great choice for historic windows, new homes, and rental homes for noise reduction without window replacement. Indow inserts make noise canceling easy without the hassle and expense of installing soundproof windows!
How Do Acoustic Window Inserts Work?
Acoustic Grade inserts are an extra layer against sound vibrations – they are sound deadening storm windows for the interior. The deeper the window frame, the bigger the air pocket between insert and window—the better the performance. All window measurements are entered through our Measure by Indow software, which instantly verifies measurements for a precise fit. Our sound blocking window inserts create a tight seal that block noise entering through cracks.
Indow Custom Acoustic Window Inserts Are:
- Double the thickness of Standard Grade inserts.
- Edged in our patented silicone compression tube.
- Made in three different colors - warm white, brown, and black.
- Available in custom shapes like arches, rounds, and eyebrows.
Window inserts for soundproofing are used in a variety of settings such as bedrooms, nurseries, home recording studios, art studios, and offices. Hotels, churches, yoga studios, government buildings, museums and rental property managers have all used Indow inserts to reduce noise.

Indow Window Insert Noise Reduction Performance:
- Reduces noise by 18.9 dBA (more than 70% reduction with single-pane windows.)
- Reduces noise by 10-12 dBA (more than 50% reduction with double-pane windows.)
- STC (Sound Transmission Class) Ratings tell how much noise is blocked by walls, windows and other surfaces. Independent studies have shown Acoustic Grade inserts placed over double-pane windows have a STC rating of 42-45.
*We want to ensure our inserts help solve your noise problem. Overall noise reduction depends on the amount of noise coming through your walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and existing windows. Noise reduction will be less when placed over double-pane windows. Read our full Noise Reduction Sheet to learn more.
