Soundproof Curtains

Comments 5 Glenn Miller Hello i am a producer of music and am in need if the heavier grade of drapes for the hallway between my work area and the kitchen. This upgrade would be great to stop the sound of the generator that is in a room connected to the kitchen and also will allow me to play music and not disturb my familly too much while they are asleep at night. The hallway space is appoz 86 inches and i know this may require more material that the exact dimensions. So if you can please reply to me with how much material this will require of what gauge, and the price, that will be great thank you. Glenn Reply Sharon Blake Industrial soundproof curtains. We have offices back to back and need some soundproofing on one wall approximately 4m x 7m. Can you advise if this would be something that would look aesthetically pleasing and if it was posted / obtained in Perth, Western Australia? Many thanks, Sharon Blake. Reply Soundproofing Tips Sharon, I’d have to say the industrial type curtains are not all that pretty to look art. They are like a big heavy, grey quilt. I am sure there has to be a supplier somewhere in Australia, although I wouldn’t be any help in finding one. It’s unclear from you comment if the offices are enclosed by walls, are there doors? Or is this an open office type of situation, with the one shared wall in between? If these are open offices, i would suggest looking into partitions and covering with regular acoustic style curtains or blackout curtains. Those should provide some privacy and cut down on noise reflection between offices. Reply scott Hello, I am researching options to better soundproof my band room in my house. I want to buy soundproof curtains simply to reduce the noise my family puts up with when my band rehearses. I want to bisect a large room and use a soundproof curtain to do so. Do you have a curtain specifically for that purpose?? Reply Soundproofing Tips We do not sell curtains, but you could inquire with acousticalsurfaces.com or residential-acoustics.com as they have quite a few options and customer service to speak with. Replysoundproof curtains 1The term “soundproof curtains” is a misunderstood phrase. It is an acoustic treatment that doesn’t actually soundproof anything, rather they help absorb and dampen sound. Soundproofing curtains are simply a product made of soundproof materials that can be hung vertically along walls, adjacent to windows and movie screens, or arranged as panels surrounding particularly noisy objects.soundproof curtains 2If you live on a busy city street, next to a loud construction site or in an apartment building with thin walls, you might have a lot of outside noise invading your residential space. There are many ways to keep outside noise out, and one way is to buy soundproofing curtains. Soundproof curtains are thicker than regular curtains, and they often have heavy panels that absorb sound before it reaches the interior of a room or home. Buy soundproof curtains that match your decor and effectively minimize the sound coming into your house from outside.soundproof curtains 3Look for a layer of vinyl backing. Soundproof curtains look like any decorative curtain, but the back of the curtains should contain mass loaded vinyl material. Make sure the mass loaded vinyl is constructed from high quality vinyl and includes silica and sand. This is what creates the soundproof barrier in the curtains. Check the packaging, or ask a sales associate.soundproof curtains 4Soundproof curtains can be very difficult to find in regular stores.  Blackout curtains are an effective alternative to true acoustic grade curtains.  Just be cautious what you buy. Bring a big flashlight if you go to a store, and if you can see the light through the product, don’t buy it because the fabric is too light and sheer to absorb any sound.  Here are some blackout curtains that we recommend.soundproof curtains 5Since we know mass is the critical factor in absorbing sound, soundproof curtains are composed of one or more layers of dense materials. Layers typically consist of mass loaded vinyl, sandwiched in between a plush, decorative fabric, or a blanket like fabric for commercial and industrial soundproofing curtains.soundproof curtains 6One example is at urban construction sites, where many people may be living nearby and bothered by the noise of cranes, backhoes, and trucks.  If the site perimeter is covered with soundproof curtains, it can greatly reduce the noise reaching the nearby residents. Industrial sound curtains can also be used in manufacturing plants.soundproof curtains 7The curtains really do help lessen the loud street noises in NYC. My only issue is that the hooks were not strong enough to hang the curtains–perhaps because my ceiling to floor length curtains were especially heavy. Fortunately, my handyman was able to reinforce the hooks with additional hardware, so my curtains are secure.soundproof curtains 84 out of 5 Nethea Rhinehardt – October 28, 2014: Helps enormously in NYC!

They also require heavy-duty tracking systems or frames to support their weight. Noise barrier curtains are used to reduce noise from industrial machinery, compressors, generators, or pumps.soundproof curtains 17Sharon, I’d have to say the industrial type curtains are not all that pretty to look art.
