Blackout Curtains Market: An Insight On the Important Factors and Trends Influen

Posted by Harshad Borde on May 22nd, 2019

Blackout curtains are opaque fabrics used to make a room as dark as possible. These are commonly used in hotel rooms as curtain linings or drapery fabrics. Blackout curtains often reduce energy costs by preventing sunlight and UV rays from entering the room. In addition, these curtains protect furniture and floor from sun damage and fading, making these high-cost products more durable. Blackout curtains are made of tightly woven, layered fabric such as velvet, suede, or felt. The key feature of blackout curtains is that it helps to keep light away from streaming into the home where it is not wanted. Blackout curtains are often used in rooms that get high sunlight and in areas which do not require sunlight, such as media rooms.

Blackout curtains contain coated lining specially designed to block sunlight from entering the room. These curtains helps to keep a room dark during sunny or bright outdoor conditions. The coated lining makes these curtains heavier than the traditional curtains and hang without wrinkles. It also prevents the curtains from discoloring or fading from exposure to sunlight over a period of time. While the coating on the curtains will keep the light out of the room regardless of how it is positioned, it also helps to reduce sun exposure and help prevent fabrics from damage. While some blackout liners are attached directly to the curtain, others are of a separate structure in which one side of the curtain looks like vinyl and the other like fabric. The fabric-side often faces the window to help protect the coated side.
