Soundproof Curtains: Efficient noise protection and natural sound absorption!
Do you live in a modern flat with big windows? Do you work in an open-air office where the bustle is irritating? Then you know what the problem is.
The sound waves are reflected from flat surfaces causing thereby disturbing echo.The acoustics of a room improves even by using “standard” curtains. Of course, our Soundproof curtains are significantly more effective!
You can order perfectly absorbing acoustic velvet curtains in 24 different colours:

Characteristics of the material:
The surfaces of our Velvet Mustang and Velvet dampers curtains are slightly satiny. Thus, it does not glisten or reflect the light which could disturb home theatre performance.It is considered as a blind which prevents the access of external light in 95%.
Dimensions of our soundproof curtains:
Our curtains are tailored to your needs!
The width of each curtain is 140cm. You have to choose the length. We don’t have standard sizes as there are windows and doors in various sizes therefore it would be difficult to find a size that fits for everyone. Of course, if you want custom made size we can do it for you. In this case please send an email specifying the required sizes.
The recommended width of our curtains is 2x the size of the window or rather 2,5x for better sound absorption.
Fixation of curtains:
Soundproof curtains can be used with clips or passed through with pelmets. In case of longer and larger curtains we do not recommend fixation with clips due to their weight.
At the top of our curtains we made a hole where the pelmet can easily be passed through. So, it can be used either with clips or with pelmet.
How to calculate the dimensions of soundproof curtains:
The material width of curtains is uniformly 140 cm from which 2-2 cm is sewn fringe (at both sizes), this must be calculated in the order. You can order wider curtains of any size. This is possible only by sewing the pieces, the join needs 5 cm. Thus, you must calculate +5 cm for each 140 cm. The “fastener” of pelmets of soundproof curtains needs extra material of about 8-10 cm. This must be included in the calculation in order to get the required size. Consider every detail when calculating the size to get a curtain which is not only efficient but looks nice.
We cannot take back the custom made soundproof curtains as these are not standard products but of custom sizes.
You can choose materials with or without pattern for the curtains, thus everyone can find the colour and pattern that fits his/her flat or room. Materials with or without pattern are on stock in 24 different colours.
Why do we say sound absorbing curtain?
As we have already mentioned a standard curtain can also absorb the sound to a certain extent but this does not make it an acoustic curtain. Our acoustic curtains are made of the best quality and density sound absorbing materials, which enables them to have a beneficial acoustic effect. The denser and thicker a sound absorbing material of a curtain is the higher volume of sound it is able to absorb.
Our velvet sound absorbing curtain has a bulk density of 750 g/m2 which can cause a drop in sound pressure even of 10-20dB.
The reverberation time significantly decreases with our curtains, it eliminates the echo on a large surface.
The sound absorbing curtains decrease the high and mid frequencies the more effective.

- traffic noise!
Facts about the soundproof curtains:
It is important to know that we cannot really talk about bass absorption in case of sound absorbing curtains. A curtain that eliminates also bass frequencies does not exist but the good news is that it can decrease the sounds from 200Hz and significantly absorb them from 400Hz. Exactly because of this high sound absorption it must not be used in smaller home theatres or studios on the entire wall. As it absorbs the sounds above 400Hz too much, it can result in over-dampening. In these places the sound balance is important. In every case it is very important that we can achieve high quality room acoustics if we use the different acoustic tools such as
- acoustic panels
- acoustic diffusers
- bass traps
- absorbing membranes
- Acoustic panels with diffuser
- and acoustic curtains complementary, in combination!
About reflection of surfaces:
While in space every sound dissipates evenly and passes smoothly, in a room the walls, furniture, and windows cause reflection, preventing thereby the passing and termination of the sound. These continuous sound reflections influence the acoustics.
The softer a surface the higher volume of sound it absorbs. Conversely, reflecting harder surfaces such as window, mirror, lacquered furniture transmit the sound smoothly, without slowing it down.
