Direct Fabrics are specialists in contract curtains and particularly Acoustic Sound Proofing Curtains. Our range is different to the others in the market place. Our sound proof curtains are actually tested in a laboratory. We have had them tested for sound insulation (sound proofing) to 12db and also sound absorbtion (echo reduction and sound clarity), "A" rating".


This product is complex - please read the entire description so we can help you. Any questions we love to chat to our customers.

All this means that you can be confident in the product. Our curtains are great at sound blocking as a room divider, but when used with double glazing to stop road noise will not be as effective due to the window doing the majority of the work and the curtain focussing on the same frequencies as the window.

    Frequently Asked Question About Sound Proof Curtains

    - This all depends on how your room is constructed and most importantly the windows that are in your room. If you have a draughty window made out of single glazing then our curtains will work well to reduce the sound entering and passing around the room. The curtains have been tested for sound insulation effectively sound blocking. They have been tested to 4db with a sealed double glazed window.

    Customer Review - Triple Glazed windows in a modern London apartment. Our customer has said there was a 50% reduction in the sound. Road Noise is generally low tones when on the road side, so if on a ground floor level the sound is probably entering through the fabric of the building. This means your adjustments will need to be more structural. For higher frequencies, these curtains will work well to dull the sound.

    Similar to road noise it depends on the construction of your room

    We have had customers note - they have seen upto a 50% improvement when using double glazing and our curtains. They can now sleep through the the early morning flights. Modern buildings with quality double glazing units will only see a marginal impact from the sound entering the room. Where you will notice the improvement is the sound already bounces around the space. As you are adding an acoustic absorber being the face fabric to the space, it will reduce the reverberation of the sound passing around the space.

    It is important to ensure you use a metal heavy duty curtain track. As a standard our curtains weight approx 800gms. So for a standard pair of curtains 200cm x 200cm they would weigh 8kg. These are deemed quite heavy curtains. We recommend our optimal track or our roller runner track.

    Read this carefully. There is no difference between the 2. We just like to explain the product for one use and another for a different use. The room divider curtain has been tested as a room divider so has a sound insulation of 11db varying on lining and the window curtain has been tested infront of a double glazed window so has a 4 db uplift above the double glazed window.

    When working with loud echoes in spaces it can be incredibly frustrating to stop sound reverberating around the room. This is where an acoustic curtain come in. Depending on the fabric it will have a varying effect on the amount of absorption that It takes and effects the sound passing back around the room.

    To see how good a fabric or product is at absorbing sound in a room then you need to complete the Sound absorption test EN ISO 354. This grades a product between A – E based on how absorbent a material is. When sound is projected into a room it will hit the surfaces and then it will either be transmitted through things like ceilings and walls or it will be reflected back into the room. So in a basic form, the test is how much sound is sent out will return.

    Example Imagine. 100 units of sound are sent into a room, 95 units are transmitted out of the room and then 5 are recorded back into the space.

    Thus the sound absorption coefficient is 0,95

    Sound insulation is the measurement of sound passing between 2 spaces when comparing its performance in an aperature that is open and then sealed with the test product. This is tested with ENISO 717 for acousitc insulation. This is measured in decibells and is measured to show the reduction of sound.

    Changes in STC RatingChanges in Apparent Loudness
    +/- 1dbAlmost imperceptible
    +/- 3dbJust perceptible
    +/- 5dbClearly noticeable
    +/- 10dbTwice (or half) as loud

    YES - This is an excellent use of our acoustic curtains. standard acoustic herringbone fabric with duo lining is well suited to reduce sound passing from space to space at about 11db - 13db in a laboratory environment, combine this with our vinyl will get you approximately 10db in real-world testing. Laboratory.

    Compared to the laboratory tests which have the fabric totally sealed you will not get a result as good as this in the real world. From our office tests and videos on youtube we have seen results of around 3db less in the real world. Going from 13db down to 10db area.

    Great product, I bought an acoustic curtain and I am very happy with the final result and the quality of the curtain and curtain rail. I wouldn't give 5 stars as there where a lot of problems with the ordering process as I needed a quite specific design and there seemed to be a lot of technical problems with Direct Fabrics understanding my needs, including being sent a completely incorrect curtain rail. Having said that Direct Curtains where prompt in dealing with these problems and also where happy to send extra curtain rail fixings, so overall a slightly frustrating process but the end product was very good.

    Our curtain requirements were a little complicated and Jane in the sales dept helped me get my order right. The curtain track arrived a few days after I placed my order and the curtains arrived after about 2 weeks - with the curtain hooks already in the header tape which was an added bonus! They're very well made and I'm very happy. with them I will definitely use then again if I need more.

    I was buying acoustic curtains for two road facing bedrooms, one of which was to be a music room. Spending so much money, I was nervous about getting it right but Direct Fabrics were so helpful. I just told them the measurements and they sent me an order template for what I needed, including the track for the room divider.
    Communication was excellent and personal (quite rare these days?) and Lizzie oversaw my order and kept me up to speed with progress.
    The curtains arrived a lot sooner than I was expecting them and are really good quality.
    My music room is like a cocoon now with all the curtains drawn, so I can play saxophone without trying to be quiet!

    There are lots of fabrics to choose from and we were expertly advised about the correct product and size to suit our needs. This was over the telephone as well as on line. We were able to look at sample fabrics before we purchased. Delivery was ahead of time and we found the company very flexible to meet our needs even though we had a comparatively small purchase

    It’s reassuring to be able to talk to people who really understand their product and can advise accordingly
    We would definitely recommend the company as we are very satisfied with the end product

    Hi, We moved in recently into or new flat, we have triple glazing but it wasn't sufficient for me as we live next to a busy road in London, so i wanted to have acoustic/blackout curtains i looked online and found that Direct Fabric is making such a product. I sent pictures of our bedroom to Mia, she has been brilliant by assisting me with correct measurements and installation. It is now up, do the job and look great. It's not cheap but very efficient.

    We bought these curtains for our village hall in backwell. They look really splendid and we are really please with the overall design and the choice of colour. The acoustics of the space which was a main concern have been improved and the space is less echoey than before.

    windows are large .

    Metal Tape Measure

    As this will allow you to get a
    rigid full length measurement.





    Make sure your curtain tracks and poles are fitted in the position you want.


    Choose the type of curtains that you would like and how you want to hang your curtains. See our heading styles guide


    We recommend fitting your hardware first before measuring, this avoids any issues with not getting the perfect fit.

     

    Measure your window using our main guide. Quick summary below. Remember wave, pinch, and designer headings require slightly different measurement

    Measure in 3 places and take the shortest drop – Floors and ceilings can run out.

    Double / Triple check your measurements

    how to measure for curtains



    Choosing your Curtain Track Width

    The width of the curtain track should extend past your window this allows for the curtains to stack back away from your window and allow light in.

    Measure your recess and then add on 15cm on either side. For acoustics , we recommend further to fully cover the window and the surrounding area. In our test we added an additional 30cm to the width and also made the curtain floor length.

    Wave curtains, for every 100cm of track the curtains will stack circa *18cm

    Eyelet curtains, they will stack back circa 10cm per *70cm of track width

    Pencil Pleat will stack approx 25% of the track width. eg. 210cm track will stack 52.5%

    * all dependent on thickness of fabric

    How to Measure for Blinds going Inside the Recess

    How to measure for blinds inside thet recess

    • Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the  smallest size.
    • Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take the smallest size.
    • We will take one cm off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily.
    • Double check your measurements
    • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the Fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

    How to Measure Outside of the Recess


    • Measure the recess in 3 places on the width and also 3 places on the drop. Take the widest measurement.
    • Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm whatever you think looks appropriate. This is for overlap.
    • Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 7-15cm
    • These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind.

    • Double check your measurements
    • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm



    Cubicle Tracks you have to measure with right angles from wall to wall where you want the track to go

    Draw your room on a piece of paper with a sky view

    Now measure from the wall to wall for straight tracks,

    L Shape Tracks Measure to a point on the floor and mark with a piece of tape. Then for the other sides measure from the other wall to that point.

    Always check for obstructions and fitting issues you may need to work around
