How to soundproof your room against barking dogs ?
As you know that India is one of the most populated country in comparison to most of the countries in europe & also USA. Noise pollution is one of the modern man-made disease. Honking car horns, DJ sound & religious practice of using loudspeakers is order of the day in India. The Supreme court has already set time & decibel limits on the usage of loudspeakers. In any condition, One can not exceed more than 55 dB noise level. But challenge in India is Law- enforcement & common man's limited knowledge about side effects of high noise level. It is known fact that once continuous exposure to noise level more than 55 dB is one of the reason of heart attack.
To soundproof any window , 3 things to consider
- Wall/Window gap should be completely air-tight, no air- leakage.
- Present window sash/frame ( Vinyl i.e. uPVC/ OR, Aluminium/ OR, Wood) must be completely air tight as well as it should have noise reduction min. 30 dB.
- Glass- If it is single glazed, Sound proofing is not possible. Double glazing with lamination is must. You can check on the following interesting app by Saint Gobain Glass - Glass dBstation-what difference different glasses will make in reduction of barking dog noise.
I hope above info is suffice to prove that without changing Door/window & glass, it is not possible to reduce barking noise.

How good is Tostem (Lixil) windows & doors
I have decided to review variable doors and windows which are available in Indian market to share my opinion about the product based on my hand-on experience & information available to general public. The purpose of reviewing different products to educate people about quality & limitations in system.
Let us start with tostem which is part of lixil group from Japan. Here one of the customer of tostem invited me to visit their home. They were using 14 mm laminated glass in all Slide doors. 14 mm laminated glass comprises of following specifications -6mm clear toughened + 1.52 mm clear PVB + 6mm clear toughened. This particular glass gives security class P3A - P4A as per protection class of EN standards.

In the nut shell, single point locking with security glass does not make a product premium. I am sure tostem also has some good products but this one should be avoidable where security is a concern.

Ventilation is the key for #Covid19
Hope everyone is staying safe & well. After reading many scientific articles over covid19 now most of the people is accepting it as a fact that covid19 transmission is airborne rather than by hands or, surface touch. Further studies suggest that One can easily catch Covid19 virus in poor ventilated closed space.

- MIT researchers says Opening windows or installing new fans to keep the air moving could also be just as effective or more effective than spending large amounts of money on a new filtration system.

Hope you are doing great & staying safe. Life after Covid19 will be very different. It will be new normal. Once lockdown opens, health & safety is going to be top most priority of everyone.
