Acoustic Sheer Curtain Fabric

Acoustic Sheer Curtain Fabric

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

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

  • Translucent
  • NRC of 0.58+
  • Flame retardant
  • Wide width
  • Lightweight
  • Durable

“Hush acoustic sheers absorb significantly more sound energy than any other sheer fabric that I know of. In contemporary decors where hard surfaces are preferred, these acoustic sheers are an ideal way to introduce desperately needed, unobtrusive, and highly effective sound absorption.” – David Spargo, owner of Praxis Acoustics.

Also available in other colours.

How Acoustic Sheer Curtain Fabric 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 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.
