How Do Curtains Insulate?

All of our block-out curtains are crafted with a four-pass lining layer of high-quality material. Our Block-out curtains create a thermal barrier between your room and the outside elements. When properly fitted over windows, they trap a layer of air, ensuring optimal room temperature regulation. This flexible insulation not only enhances comfort but also reduces energy costs, lessening your environmental footprint and utility bills, all while reducing street noise.
