Helping simplify the process of choosing windows and doors that contribute to quiet, comfortable interiors, Kolbe has more than doubled the number of its products tested for Sound Transmission Class (STC) and Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class (OITC) ratings.

At Kolbe, we understand the growing importance of blocking undesirable noise to provide the quiet, peaceful space we want in our homes.In commercial buildings, optimizing acoustic performance has proven benefits to students’ learning, patients' recovery and workers’ productivity. These same qualities also benefit residents,” said Cindy Bremer, Kolbe’s vice president of marketing.

“Kolbe offers acoustic-rated windows and doors that are both high-performance and beautifully designed. We have the options to meet the solutions architects, builders and homeowners seek for nearly every location, style preference or project specification,” added Bremer.
