For slatted blinds hanging 100 mm from the vertical surface and a double-sided acoustic curtains

Hung in front of a glazed surface, Texaa Acoustic Blinds absorb resonance, filter light and improve people’s comfort.

Used to surround sub-areas, although they have no insulating effect, Texaa Curtains enclose quiet areas that stimulate people to listen, for example in a media library or a story-telling space.

Hung in front of a glazed surface, the Curtains soften the light and acoustic ambience of a hall or meeting room.

Placed inside a volume, blinds partition spaces without closing them off, on public or private premises.

Composition and installation

Texaa Curtains are made of two lengths of sound-absorbing felt wadding with an Aeria cover. They can be zipped together with zippers that are sewn down their sides, making it possible to accommodate varying space dimensions.

The curtains are hung from a rail fitted with rollers for easy drawing. For more static applications, the curtains may be fitted with eyelets (diameter 40 mm).

Texaa Acoustic Blinds are made of 3-mm thick black felt, protected on both sides by our Aeria sound-transparent fabric. This unique product is an effective barrier for light, heat and sound.

A hanger plate is concealed in a hem at the top of each slat without any weights. The new format of this hanger plate, an exclusive Texaa patent, locates it as close as possible to the hanging rail to cut out as much light as possible. The blind slats are simply clipped to the runners in the rail.

Characteristics

Acoustic Curtains

Composition

  • One or two layers of black, sound-absorbing felt wadding, 3 mm thick

  • Sound-transparent Aeria fabric on both sides

Acoustic performance

Absorption coefficient α

  • Curtain with a fullness of 1 (with no pleating):
    αw = 0.40 (H), NRC = 0.40, Class D

  • Curtain with a fullness of 2 (pleated curtain):
    αw = 0.65 (H), NRC = 0.60, Class C

Fulness

Fullness corresponds to pleating. The greater the fullness, the more pleating created. A fullness of 1 corresponds to a curtain with no pleating.
For example, a curtain which is 3 m wide fitted to a hanging rail which is 1.5 m long, will have a fullness of 2. The curtain’s fullness determines the level of sound absorption provided.
