Adler Windows Partners with AKRF for AIA Event on Sound Attenuation

Window & Door
April 8, 2019

New York-based window and door contractor Adler Windows co-hosted an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Lunch & Learn event with AKRF Inc., a consulting firm in environmental planning and engineering.

The lunch was held at Adler Windows' Manhattan showroom, and was one of the most recent in a series of AIA events hosted by Adler Windows. These events consist of Lunch & Learns, Educational Evenings, Walking Tours and Boat Tours, in which the company’s highly trained team and partners, such as leading window and door manufacturers, present the latest trends, standards and policy developments in the architectural industry.

The Lunch & Learn featured the topic ‘Sound Attenuation Through High-Performance Windows,’ a seminar worth 1 HSW/LU that Adler Windows and AKRF had been developing for the past 12 months. The course provided an overview of relevant noise regulations and design requirements, discussed the process for determining a window acoustical performance specification, and described the design and installation of a window to meet that specification. “After each of our AIA events we send out a survey to attendees asking them for feedback and industry topics they want to learn about—sound attenuation a was massively requested topic, as any New Yorker probably could have guessed. This is what sparked the idea to partner with AKRF to create an AIA accredited seminar on Sound Attenuation Through High-Performance Windows,” says Ross Adler, president of Adler Windows.

This is Adler Windows' second AIA seminar; they also offer a one-hour presentation, also worth 1 HSW/LU, on “New York City’s Landmark Preservation Commission and Replacement Windows.” Throughout 2019, Adler Windows will continue to host monthly AIA Lunch and Learns in their showroom and are also taking bookings in Architecture Firms for Lunch and Learns—if interested in attending or hosting a Lunch and Learn, please email Siona Carroll at for more information.
