    People here have previously suggested the benefits of triple glazing are negligible over double glazing.

    Triple glazing will make very little difference to noise, Probably an unnoticeable amount. Secondary glazing with a 100mm air gap is going to give you the most noticeable difference for your money.

    My three suggestions:

    1. Hang a duvet from the window frame (inside).
    2. Call the RSPCA, the dogs aren't happy.
    3. This company makes acoustic triple glazing: http://www.christieglass.com/pricecalculator.php It's easy to replace glazing units and your heating bills will come down.

    i once did a job of secondary glazing on a hotel in Market Harborough
    The remit was to try to attain total noise cut out.

    I was a small business at the time so i took the problem to my local college their answer was that the most noise reduction was obtained at 6 inches ...150mm in new money.

    However if your pockets are quite deep therde is a glass that is in airports to cut out the noise of planes landing and taking off.
    Dont know who supplies it just heard about it.

    Hope you are successful

    If it were me i would get an old air raid siren and every time they barked i would let that off and see how the dogs owners liked that.

    Sorry to be a downer, but the average triple glazing really isn't that good at cutting out the noise. It's not so much the glazing units themselves, but the frames that transfer the sound and how they're fitted. Any gaps in the rebates after fitting have to be packed with plaster, not just covered over in plastic strips. Similarly the seals used around opening windows are just bog standard seals, not acoustic seals, so sound comes around them.

    The glazing will hold back the heat, but it also holds back the light.

    If you want triple glazed windows to keep the sound out, you'd need to talk to a specialist company and have deep pockets.
