Cityproof Windows: Fighting Noise, Draft & Dirt
Highly recommended by Peter, who wrote a memorable email to us last year on the subject, in which he used the words:
Oh. My. God.
Slience. Library quiet. Peaceful sleep. I slide the panels closed and feel like Charlton Heston in Omega Man, cloistering myself from the barbarians below. My favorite part? I bring guy friends in, show ’em the window, and say: “go ahead. Hit it. As hard as you can.” All you hear is that dull whack of knuckles hittin’ half-inch thick glass.
New York Mag says: The Best of 2004 – “The company can hush just about any type of window without affecting the style of the original panes or their operation.”
Cityproof can work on both Landmark and Non Landmark buildings, without “replacing or modifying the existing exterior window.” Prices start at @ $500 per window and go up from there depending on the complexity of the window and the thickness of the glass.
