Q:What is the best shade to order for noise or sound reduction?
A:The window shades that offer the best acoustical insulation are honeycomb cellular shades. Cellular shades are designed with a honeycomb design that trap air inside the shades for insulation. The more cells a honeycomb shade has, the better insulator it will be. For example, a double cell shade has two cells and will do better than a single cell with sound absorption. Another option may be the ComforTrack Cell shades. They are designed with a sidetrack on each side of the shades. This is to prevent air loss along the sides between the shades and the window frame. It is really designed for heat loss but will also insulate from noise. Although cellular shades will insulate the noise they will not block all of it.
