Living in New York can be noisy at the best of times and extremely noisy at the worst. While we know you love the vibe of the city (who doesn’t), we believe that the vibe inside your home or office should not be dictated by what’s happening outside. Window inserts are an exceptionally cost and time-effective option for keeping out noise and drafts, helping you create an ideal environment for work or play.
The inserts we trust are Indow Windows. They are lighter and less expensive than some of the other brands on the market you may have seen, and with less than an inch of space required for installation, they are a viable option for any window you might have…. even landmark properties.
If you are looking for a window option for your home or office that:
a) doesn’t cost a fortune;
b) doesn’t take weeks to install; and
c) is proven safe for landmark buildings, look no further than our Standard Grade inserts. They are our most multi-functional window insert that provides a reliable and cost-effective barrier to the noise and drafts that only a New Yorker could understand. Plus, due to the seamless installation, they can be used on landmark buildings without any outside approval required.
Standard Grade inserts are made out of high quality acrylic glazing and edged with our patented Compression Tube. The tubing squeezes down when pressed inside your window, holding the insert securely in place without a mounting bracket. Every insert is custom made according to precise, laser measured dimensions of your window frames, for a perfect fit, every time. Once installed, Indow inserts seal out cold drafts and hot air, giving you all the comfort and energy efficiency of high-end replacement windows and significantly outperforming them when it comes to noise reduction.
KEY SELLING FEATURE: With minimum disruption to your home or corporate environment, Standard Grade inserts can be placed in any window within minutes to drastically reduce drafts and noise from the outside world.
Sleepless in Sea;le? More like Sleepless in New York. While regular windows provide a slight buffer from the noise, they can’t compare to our Acoustic window inserts. Acoustic grade inserts dampen noise by 18.9 dBA, that’s over 70% window noise reduction, when placed over operable single pane windows. When placed over operable double-pane windows, Acoustic Grade inserts reduce noise by 10 to 12 dBA, equivalent to a 50%+ reduction in noise. Perfect for those in high traffic areas or for those who want to block out the garbage truck at 7a.m.
KEY SELLING FEATURE: Achieve more than 70% noise reduc;on when placed on single pane windows compared with complete window replacements.
Museum Grade: Protect what you love
Privacy Grade: Curious neighbours just met their match
Many of the buildings in New York are considered historical and anyone who has tried to make a change to a landmark building knows just how hard that can be. The red tape, expense, hassle… all to change a window? We say, no. The benefit of a window insert is that it goes directly on top of the existing window seamlessly providing the noise and draft benefits you want, without the expense and hassle of getting a new window. The perfect choice for busy New Yorkers.
Indow window inserts have 94% of the insulation of standard doublepane windows. The surface of an acrylic Indow insert is much warmer than the surface of a pane of glass, so you’ll feel warmer even if the air temperature in both cases is the same.
While Indow Windows are of the highest quality and look great on their own, you can prime and paint them with standard interior wall paint to match any room.
When it comes to replacing windows, the price tag can be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Indoor Window inserts provides you with the performance of a new window, oftentimes even higher performance), without the price tag. Typically our high quality window inserts are 40% less expensive than replacing the entire window. Investigate for yourself and request a free quote.
In some cases, it may be possible to lessen the appearance of scratches by using a plastic polish such as Novus 2 or 3, which can be found at most major hardware stores. Be careful to follow the manufacturer’s directions as the incorrect use may damage your Indow insert.
Many Indow inserts can be left in place year round with the occasional removal for cleaning. If you wish to remove at any point, remember that proper storage is recommended to avoid scratches. We recommend either purchasing or making a sleeve in which the insert can be placed. If making your own, remember to avoid abrasive materials and go with something soft and that can easily be secured to avoid any debris from entering. To store, lay them flat on the floor with the largest on the bottom and no more than 3 high to prevent bowing or warping. They can also be stored vertically against each other with a protective barrier between each insert to prevent scratching.
Doing business as Indow (“Indow”) provides this Limited Residential Warranty to purchasers who use the product in a non-commercial property, not used for income-generating purposes (our Limited Commercial Warranty maybe viewed at http://go.indowwindows.com/ commercial_warranty). Indow warrants its window inserts against defects of materials or workmanship as long as the purchaser continuously occupies the property for which the window insert was purchased.
This warranty is not transferable.
This warranty does not apply to any Indow window insert which has been subject to accident, acts of God, re, flood, abuse or misuse, abuse by harmful fumes, vapors, solvents, chemicals or chemical pollutants in the atmosphere, mold, building settlement or structural failures of walls or foundations. We do not warrant our glazing against scratching or breakage which can occur if improperly handled. This warranty does not apply to any Indow window insert that has been subject to operating temperatures exceeding 160 degrees Fahrenheit. We do not warrant our acrylic glazing against clouding, yellowing or loss of light transmission caused by dirt, scratching, breakage, or improper cleaning with ammonia or bleach based cleaners.
Glazing and Tubing
Indow uses only the highest quality materials in the manufacture of our products. Indow warrants its clear acrylic glazing against a change in light transmission in excess of 3%. This does not cover certain specialty grades that are not clear to start with (including Blackout, Sleep Panels, Privacy and Shade Grades), nor clear acrylic glazing exposed to artificial light sources emittng intense amounts of UVB or higher energy radiation. The Indow compression tubing is made of silicone which resists the effects of heat, cold and ultraviolet exposure.
Condensation is not a product defect, but the result of excess humidity. Condensation, frost, or mold, mildew, or fungus on window surfaces is not covered by the Limited Warranty. Indow bears no responsibility or liability for any situation where molds or other associated conditions arise as a result of improper use, cleaning, sealing, humidication or ventilation.
Indow does not warrant its window inserts against venting excess air pressure. It is part of an Indow window insert’s normal function to occasionally relieve excess air pressure by ‘popping’ a corner or side in response to heavy external winds combined with extreme temperatures or a blower door test. Simply press the window insert back into place to restore normal function.
