The answer to this problem is Acoustica’s CurtainWave SQ!
CurtainWave® SQ is the easy and simple way to block out sound using existing curtains and window décor. A high-performance noise barrier and vibration damping material, CurtainWave® SQ is effective at absorbing noise even in heavily glazed rooms.
CurtainWave® SQ is a flexible noise barrier and vibration damping material. CurtainWave® SQ was designed for backing curtains to increase the noise attenuation given by glass.
It is like installing a double-glazing system with the advantage to also blocking sunlight. CurtainWave® SQ can be directly sewn onto the curtain material or attached to a separate fabric or ‘block-out’ material.
Due to its patented micro-cellular composition, CurtainWave® SQ achieves the same acoustic rating as a mass loaded flexible nose barrier that is 2 x heavier, i.e. 4.5kg/m2. CurtainWave® SQ is only 2.3kg/m2 (nominal). CurtainWave® SQ has a tested acoustic rating of Rw 27.
CurtainWave® SQ is a highly elastic micro-cellular acoustic membrane supported by a heavy-duty non- stretchable polyester fabric. At only 1.6mm thick, it makes integration into any window décor a breeze!
