Window Insert Testing by Field Experts

Other than submitting our products for testing in official laboratories, we have several professionals and experts in their field who have tested Indow inserts in their own labs and warehouses:

Scott Sidler runs his own historic restoration company, has worked with windows for decades, and calls The Craftsman Blog his “laboratory, classroom, playground, and favorite place to be”. His video of Indow noise blocking performance is a great resource of an expert opinion.


Riffs, Beards & Gear is a musician who does audio gear reviews. He got Indow window inserts for his home recording studio. He did an unboxing, installation, and review video.

One professor and Indow customer used his thermal imaging camera to capture the difference in temperature his Indow inserts made.
