As urban noise pollution becomes more and more serious, more and more families and places begin to pay attention to the improvement of indoor acoustic environment. Among the many acoustic improvement products, soundproof curtains and sound-absorbing curtains have attracted a lot of attention.
However, many people are not clear about the difference between these two types of curtains. This article will introduce the difference between soundproof curtains and sound-absorbing curtains in detail from the following aspects, and help you choose the acoustic curtains that suit you.
1. The principle of sound-proof curtains and sound-absorbing curtains
First, let's understand how soundproofing and sound-absorbing curtains work.
1.1 Soundproof curtains
The main principle of soundproof curtains is to block the transmission of external noise through dense and thick fabrics. The design of this kind of curtain usually adopts multi-layer structure, and uses special sound-proof materials, such as polyester fiber, glass fiber and so on. In addition, the fabric of the soundproof curtain also needs to have good sealing to reduce the entry of noise.
1.2 Sound-absorbing curtains
The main principle of sound-absorbing curtains is to absorb sound wave energy through a loose material structure and reduce sound wave reflection and echo. The design of this kind of curtain usually adopts the cloth with good air permeability, such as cotton, hemp and other natural fibers. Sound-absorbing curtains can effectively improve the indoor acoustic environment and reduce echo and noise.
2. Curtain solutions with double effect
Although soundproof curtains and sound-absorbing curtains are different in function, material and structure, there are already some curtains on the market that can achieve the dual effects of sound insulation and sound absorption. ENA SLIENCE fabric from ENA, for example, is such a curtain that combines sound insulation and sound absorption.

3. Precautions for purchasing
When purchasing soundproof curtains or sound-absorbing curtains, the following factors should be considered:
When choosing soundproof curtains, heavy and dense fabrics, such as velvet and suede, should be given priority. In addition, it will be more effective to choose curtains with special sound-proofing materials in the inner layer. For sound-absorbing curtains, it is better to choose soft and loose fiber materials with good sound-absorbing properties, such as polyester and hemp.
In order to ensure that the curtains will adequately cover the windows, make sure that the curtains are slightly larger than the window when purchasing. At the same time, the up and down extension of the curtains should also be sufficient to reduce the possibility of noise penetration.
