1000th Acoustically Treated Home Completed in San Antonio, Texas
St. Cloud Window Inc. is pleased to celebrate the 1000th home in the San Antonio, Texas Residential Treatment Program for airport noise abatement.
The occasion was marked by a celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony on October 8, 2012, at the home of Ann Fisher in San Antonio with representatives from the San Antonio Airport, the City of San Antonio, and program partner THC Inc.
The program, launched in July 2006, is designed to make neighborhoods located near the airport more compatible with airport noise by providing acoustical improvements to eligible homes, including window and door installations. The result is a drop in interior noise level of at least 5 decibels, comparable to doubling the distance of an aircraft flying overhead.
Funding for the program is a result of a partnership between the airport and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). No federal, state or city tax dollars are used to fund the program.
St. Cloud Window is proud to have supplied acoustic windows and doors to the program since its inception, providing SCW 900 Series products, specifically designed to act as an acoustic sound buffer to drastically lower the sound transmission from exterior to interior. These products have a wide array of applications for commercial construction projects, including hotels, hospitals, schools as well as residences located in urban areas, and are used nationwide in Airport Noise program analogous to the program in San Antonio.
