Acoustic Curtain Fabric

Acoustic Curtain Fabric

Our range of acoustic curtain fabric offers many patterned and plain colour options to satisfy the most exacting demands in aesthetics and functionality.

These acoustic curtain fabrics give the look and feel of a soft drape, whilst their technology offers acoustic control. With the fabric positioned approximately 15 to 20 cm from the window or wall, researchers have found it can absorb up to five times as much sound as a typical, lightweight, non-acoustic fabric. They deliver an outstanding NRC rating of between 0.55 and 0.71.

NRC Explained

To quantify our product as commercial acoustic solutions, each is tested and awarded an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating. The NRC relates to the absorption effectiveness of the material, and is calculated by averaging how absorptive a material is at four different frequencies.

Our Hush acoustic sheer curtain fabric is tested at 250hz, 500hz, 1000hz and 2000hz. Taking the average number, it is then applied to the NRC scale of 0 to 1. A perfectly sound absorptive material achieves a 1, whereas a 0 indicates no absorption.

Please note that these tests are conducted 15-20cm away from a window. If the same fabric is used in a different application, for example as a room divider or privacy curtain not near a window or wall, the NRC result will be lower.

Printable Acoustic Base Cloths

Some of our acoustic curtain fabrics are print compatible, meaning you can choose designs from our vast library which we digitally print onto the base cloths at our printing headquarters in Sydney.

Acoustic Curtain Fabric

“To deal with an open plan bar space with multi-use requirements, a drapery solution was decided upon to provide flexibility for the clients and acoustic abatement for guests. The solution needed to be both cost-effective and acoustically efficient. Materialised’s acoustic drapery fabric, Midnight, was perfect for the job and was both soft in its handle and weighted in its drape.”
