Hemisphere is a high textured woven Dimout fabric with a very dense weave. This makes the structure and yarn visible on the surface, giving hemisphere some incredibly appealing characteristics. Available in a vast range of inspiring colours and amazingly versatile for a range of applications, the Hemisphere range can be used for face fabric, lining, trims and interior design accessories.

Those familiar with Direct Fabrics will know that our range of Dimouts are an extremely popular choice for hotels, universities, nursing homes, hospitals, domestic properties, and can also be used as a decorative window covering or form part of an overall interior design scheme. Hemisphere is no exception to the rule and ticks all the Dimout functionality boxes, and is accredited with all international Dimout standards.

 

Hemisphere Acoustic Curtains

The hemisphere range of curtain fabrics are an acoustic range of curtains, this means that they are ideally suited to reduce the amount of echo and reverberation of sound around a space.

The hemisphere range has passed a certified acoustic report. This means it is ideally suited for sound absorption as it is graded A for EN ISO 354:2003. It has passed the classification B standard so it will absorb a large amount of sound at a variety of frequencies.

Our curtain fabrics are selected and checked for quality issues and then we cut and measure everything by hand

In our UK based workrooms, we continue the traditions of master curtain makers and offer the very best curtains that are British Made  Specification

Our curtains are manufactured with various fullness's to suit our customer's requirements. For standard made to measure curtains they are manufactured with 2x fullness also know as 100%. This means they you get beautifully pleated curtains.

Please see the further information section about curtain fullness

 

Which Curtain Lining Should i Use with Acoustic Curtains?

We have done tests in a working example with other fabrics and found that lining curtains adds mass to the curtain and means that there is more mass for the sound waves to pass through means less passes from space to space.

However, this test is a very good indication of the absorption benefits. Sound is like water and will find a way through at some level. As an example a window in a car when even slightly opened some sound will come through and obviously, the more open the more will come in. Therefore it will reduce sound passing between areas but it will never block entirely, the main benefit as stated previously is the echo and noise repeating around a room. 

We recommend our Duo lining which is a blackout 3 pass lining with a fleece layer weighing circa 400gms. So this will double the mass of your curtain. Combining this with the double fullness of the curtain means you get a great absorption rating. Along with some sound block ability.

 

Our Office NON-SCIENTIFIC ACOUSTIC TEST - Indication to sound proofing

Within our test it shows using the curtain as a partition it goes with a vacuum on one side and the curtain open and drawn from 45 decibels reducing to 38 decibels. This fluctuates and is by no means a truly scientific result. However it was certainly noticeable in the office and reduced the vacumm sound and made the team able to communicate easily.

When manufacturing curtains we join widths of the curtain material to get the required width to cover your curtain track. Example a track width of 140cm in a single curtain would have circa 2 widths of material in assuming the material is 140cm wide. Widths are rounded up to the nearest full width. This means there will be a joining seam in larger curtains.

 

 

Our curtains are delivered pulled and hooked. So the curtains are pleated to your track widths and folded neatly for delivery. The hooks have been inserted so all you have to do is clip them into your track or pole.

All lining options from direct Fabrics are flame retardant certified to BS5867 and can be used in commercial environments.

Unlined Curtains are a good option if you are looking for a low cost option. If the fabric is dimout or blackout it will provide you with a good amount of shading for the rooms with these curtains, dimout will be 90%+ and blackout with a 3 pass coating will be 100% blackout. Obviously depending where the track is located it will depend how much light will come through.

Standard polyester fr lining is a low cost option that provides extra fullness and helps your curtains drape better. The Polyester lining can be washed at 50 times and is inherently flame retardant. It will provide additional shade on standard fabrics and on dimout and blackout fabrics it is used to add a more luxurious feel.

Standard Lining

3 Pass blackout lining is Direct Fabrics choice for all curtains as it makes a room have no light come through the curtain. Certified to BS5867 Part2B so can be washed 10 times. The 3 pass coating is very hard wearing and provides a thermal benefit aswell as making your curtain drape better./p>

Tools Required to Check Measure for Curtains

Piece of paper

For recording your
measurements.




Helper

Someone to assist if your
windows are large .




Tape measure

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








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 thesmallest size.

We will take one cm (half an inch) off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size, This is to allow for fabric hemming.

Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm (3" - 6") whatever you think looks appropriate.

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 15-20cm (6" - 8")

These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size this is to allow for hemming.
