Acoustic Sheer Blind Fabric

Acoustic Sheer Blind Fabric

You’ll hardly believe the huge difference acoustic sheer blind fabric makes to the acoustic amenity of a room.

Our range boasts a combination of attributes previously unavailable for commercial spaces:

  • Translucent
  • NRC of 0.57+
  • Flame retardant
  • Wide width
  • Lightweight
  • Durable

“We have an open plan office with hard surface finishes everywhere, and it looks out onto the factory floor. It was very noisy and near impossible to have several conversations and phone calls at once. So we made roller blinds using Hush acoustic sheer Frequency White fabric.  Not only do they perform well, reducing the echo and intensity of sound in the room dramatically, but they look great too and we often have comments from visitors.” – David Reilly, Reilly & Associates.

Manufacturing note: Please be aware that they should not be railroaded.

How An Acoustic Sheer Blind Works

Woven with a ribbon-shaped Trevira CS yarn, this filament is the key to their sound absorption, managing the flow of sound waves repeatedly passing through and bouncing off a reflective surface. This changes the tone, becoming muffled, and results in the reduction of sound levels.

With the fabric positioned 15 to 20cm from the window or wall, our acoustic engineers found that it could absorb up to five times as much sound as a typical lightweight, non-acoustic fabric.

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 blind 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.
