Four Points Sheraton Hotel

Winnipeg, MB

It is our general policy to avoid metal in our choice of insulating glass," says architect Steve Cohlmeyer, "and specify a spacer that doesn't transmit cold, facilitate condensation or especially in this case, reverberate sound."
These windows have a tested Sound Transmission Control rating of 45. Such a high level of soundproofing will result in a similarly high thermal rating, so no specification was issued. Acoustical performance is exemplary, though. "It's the truth," says hotel manager John Pisker. "It's unbelievable. We get a continual stream of comments from guests. They cannot believe how quiet it is to stay in a hotel that is right beside the airport."
