How It Works

Our Acoustic Blinds and Curtains insulate and absorb sound energy to reduce the noise and improve the acoustics of any room.

Acoustic Blinds and Curtains solve two kinds of noise problem:

1. Noise reduction - reduce the noise from the outside coming in with our custom noise reduction solution
2. Sound absorption - improve internal acoustics and reduce background noise and echo with our sound absorbing fabrics

Our Acoustic Blinds and Curtains offer simple, cost effective noise reduction and sound absorption compared to other acoustic products and a functional alternative to traditional blinds and curtains!

Acoustic Blinds and Curtains are scientifically tested, and proven effective using global testing standards and in a real world setting. Please see below for details.

Please read also read Noise Problems, Considerations and Limitations to decide if Acoustic Blinds and Curtains are right for you.

Acoustic Test Results

Noise Reduction – Sound Reduction Index (ΔRw) & Sound Level Difference (ΔDw)

Acoustic Blinds and Curtains tested the Sound Reduction Index (ΔRw) & Sound Level Difference (ΔDw) of our Acoustic Curtains in the reverberation rooms at UTS Tech Labs in Sydney, Australia.

We believe that this testing is the first of its kind - testing Acoustic Blinds and Curtains in the way that they would typically test acoustic glass e.g. double glazed glass.

Our best performing Acoustic Curtains achieved a Sound Reduction Index (ΔRw) = 8dB, Sound Level Difference (ΔDw) = 10dB (with lining).

A 5dB noise reduction is clearly noticeable while a 10dB reduction is perceived as reducing the noise by half.

What does this mean?

Acoustic Blinds and Curtains reduce the noise by half*

*Perceived noise reduction. Every acoustic environment is different. Results may vary.

See our Technical Specifications for the test results of all of our acoustic fabrics.

Sound Absorption - Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC)

Noise Reduction Coefficient is the global testing standard for sound absorption of tiles, panels, fabrics and other building materials.

This test gives the average sound absorption of 4 different frequencies - 250Hz, 500Hz, 1,000Hz and 2,000Hz.

A value of 0 is no sound absorption. A value of 1 is complete sound absorption.

However note that a value of 1 does not mean that all sound in the room is absorbed - only the sound which comes into contact with the acoustic fabric.

Any fabric with an NRC over 0.4 is considered to be 'acoustic'. Our acoustic fabrics are as high as 0.75!

See our Technical Specifications for the test results of all of our acoustic fabrics.

A value of 0 is no sound absorption. A value of 1 is complete sound absorption.
Our acoustic fabrics NRC are as high as 0.75
