Unsere Fenster zeichnen sich durch optimale Wärmedämm- und Schallwerte aus.
Here it is quite obvious that they are talking about sond insulation however finding this info with leo takes a long time.

Who says that Schall- und Wärmedämmung equals "sound insulation"? Kindly adhere to the rules for new words and provide proof for your proposal, as is described on the upper part of each entry for this thread.

Until then: declined

Nicht unterstützt: sound insulation (als Schälldämmung, Schalldämmmaß und dergleichen in LEO korrekt eingetragen) ist nicht dasselbe wie Schallwerte (ein schlampiger Begriff in einer miserablen Textquelle).

@ fred - if you are looking for a translation, try "English missing". Schallwerte means "noise reduction properties" but in English you'd just say something like "Our windows are excellent for keeping out noise and the cold".

Stimme Michael Fischer völlig zu.
Schallwerte ist nur ein schlampiger Ausdruck und kein Fachwort.
