I've read some prior posts on this board and others on sound proof glass, and I have a fairly good understanding at this point. There is one question that remains, though, and that is if there is a real benefit to laminating both panes in my thermopane windows.

I have the option of going with 1/4" laminate glazed on both panes, or 1/4" laminate glazed on just one pane, and the cost difference is small enough that I wouldn't mind paying it as long as I know there is an actual benefit. Some of my windows are 3/4" and some are 1", but I'd imagine the benefit would be the same for all of the windows.

Thanks.

My company deals with green building materials that include windows and doorsand I have been in th construction industry over 35 years

1) Laminating is always a better option,just from a security and safety issue.

2) If sound (noise pollution) is of real concern to you, then you should consider various gas fillings or special designed systems to combat the issue.Also the quality of the fabrication has to be a main concern.The glass pack might be o.k, but what about the frame and sash incl.its seals and the its effectiveness within the whole unit together
