Soundproof curtains are heavy-duty curtains and drapes that are constructed to minimize noise entering or exiting a given space. They are perhaps most commonly used in movie theaters. However, curtains of this type can also be used effectively in the home. The major benefits of soundproof curtains are the outside noise stays outside. The traffic, noise from neighbors, or even the kids playing in the yard will be reduced. In offices, all the noise outside the conference room will stay in the hallway so you can really get down to business. On the other hand, if you have teenagers that enjoy their music loud enough that it can be heard blocks away, you can install remote control soundproof curtains in their room. Let them know if they listen to their music that loud, they must close the curtains so the neighborhood and the rest of the house does not have to enjoy their music as well.
While it is true that soundproof curtains are more expensive than conventional lined draperies, they tend to wear well. In addition, the panels are usually treated so they are fire retardant. Cleaning the curtains can be accomplished with steam cleaning equipment. While the curtains are rarely available at home stores and similar outlets, retailers who deal in commercial furnishings often stock a few designs for the draperies. These retailers can also special order colors, designs, and levels of thickness that meet the needs of the client. No matter the reason, you may need soundproof curtains, they are a welcome addition to the home or office and with a remote control system, and you can always open the curtains when they are not needed.
