4 Types of Soundproof Curtains

You can reduce or eliminate ambient sound in your space whether it is a home, office, or industrial environment by using soundproof curtains, drapes, and screens. Read this FAQ to learn which type of soundproof curtains you need to create a quiet environment for yourself.

This is a close look at a set of gray soundproof curtains.

Whether you need to turn an existing room of your home or office into a recording studio, or you just want a quiet room in which to work, soundproofing can help you. Of course, you will find that a lot goes into a soundproof room. You need to soundproof the floor, walls, ceiling, windows, and doors. Each project piece requires a different product. In this article, we’ll look at your options for soundproof curtains and noise-reducing curtains, which block more sound than an ordinary curtain.

You’ll find three main types or categories of soundproof curtains. Which you choose depends on the type of project you undertake and the décor you desire. You could use industrial blankets, insulation curtains, or audio insulation sheets. If you cannot find exactly what you want, worry not. You can purchase soundproof fabric and make the curtains you want yourself or hire a seamstress to do so.

Soundproofing with Insulation Curtains

BGment Blackout Curtains for Bedroom - Grommet Thermal Insulated Room Darkening Curtains for Living Room, Set of 2 Panels (42 x 63 Inch, Navy Blue)

Think of these as sound-dampening curtains. They do not actually block all of the sounds from outside. Also, they do not help control sound from within the room. You would not choose these as the sole window treatment in a home recording studio, therefore, but you could use them in a home theater. They look just like standard fare interior design curtains, but they use much thicker material. This heavier material blocks outside noise.

Many of these options also function as blackout curtains. The material used does a job similar to that of the insulation in your walls, too. They reduce your energy bills by blocking air from entering or exiting through the windows. These provide the most affordable solution. This type of curtain lets you install a decorator look in your home or office environment that blocks exterior noise. You can also use them on internal windows to block noise from office to office.

Audio Insulation Sheets

This is a close look at a stack of audio insulation sheets.

The most effective method of soundproofing windows, these cost the most. An audio insulation sheet hangs from a curtain rod just as a curtain does. Like some styles of the regular curtains, it includes grommets to enable handing from various styles of curtain rods. Constructed of multiple layers of heavy fabric, these sheets work as blackout curtains and sound blocking. Some styles of these sheets resemble thick cardboard though and come in gray, black, or white.

Sometimes referred to as audio screens, some of these fit inside the window frame to temporarily block the window and erase the sound coming from it. You might use these in a room with existing windows that you want to use as a recording studio. It provides the effect of a solid wall. You would, however, hang a traditional curtain of the soundproof variety over it, too.

Industrial Blankets

This is a close look at stacks of industrial blankets.

The interim cost option, industrial blankets were designed to protect fragile items during moves. Their thickness and extreme padding let them double as soundproofing curtains. A few of these designs come with grommets installed, so you can easily hang them. Others require hemming to fit onto a curtain rod. In a pinch or a less fancy room such as a garage, some people tack these up over the windows as a quick, temporary solution.

Industrial Soundproof Curtains

Sometimes you need noise control in a business setting to meet the ambient noise requirement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It states that you must keep your workplace ambient noise below 85 decibels (dB). OSHA determined that noises of 85 dB and louder can cause hearing loss. Noises less than that can still lead to a loss of concentration, reduced productivity, accident, and injury.

These negatively impact a workplace in many ways, necessitating sound insulating curtains, which can divide a room or wall of a work area from other employees to create a safer environment. To meet this audiometric, many workplaces use industrial soundproof curtains, also called noise control curtains. These sound control curtains block extremely loud noises such as city traffic noise and jackhammer use using a five-layer material design.

These layers consist of quilted fiberglass; waterproof, chemical-resistant coated vinyl; mass-loaded vinyl for soundproofing; and simple coated vinyl. They aren’t meant for home décor and resemble the backside of an industrial blanket in their thicker form. They come in a variety of styles including, soundproof curtain enclosures, in-plant noise control dividers, flexible and drive-thru doorways, soundproof partitions and wall panels, acoustical curtain dividers, fabric housing for compressors and blowers, enclosures for heavy machinery, stamping presses, and fans, flexible room dividers, and temporary construction noise barriers.

Most of these types of soundproof curtains install using a double track mounted roller system. This lets workers and foremen slide the curtain in and out of place to re-configure workplaces quickly to accommodate the movement of work such as on a construction site. These sound dampening curtains provide between ½ pounds per square foot (PSF) to 2 ½ PSF surface protection.

The higher PSF curtains can reduce ambient sound by up to 61 dB. This type of soundproof curtain does not have an opening between two curtain panels because the curtains attach to one another using Velcro closures. This forms a solid fabric wall of soundproofing material. Within this category also falls other industrial soundproof barriers and curtains including acoustic screens, sound blankets, folding soundproofing curtains, acoustical wall blankets typically formed with grommets on the top and the sides, so the curtain can be anchored to the wall for improved blocking.

The grommets on these curtains are heavy-duty brass toothed and spaced every 12 inches. The curtains hang on two-wheel roller hooks instead of in front of windows. You can also find curtains of this type that work with dual 16-gauge roller track systems. This lets you use the curtains as modules to link them together and form mobile rooms of your desired length and shape. Some suspended mounts can also be acquired. These attach to a threaded rod or a beam-to-chain system. Also, common are those that attach to the ceiling, or on a floor mount, or a beam flange mount.

Frequently Asked Questions

Soundproofing your home or office requires some complex decisions. This results in many questions and in this FAQ, we attempt to answer the most frequent of these.

What features should you consider when purchasing soundproof curtains?

Because you will find an immense selection of these soundproofing products, you should consider seven criteria:

  • size,
  • weight,
  • materials,
  • color,
  • rod type required,
  • ease of installation,
  • ease of maintenance.

What size considerations are there?

Measure your windows just as you would for regular curtains. You need excess fabric on the sides though because your soundproof curtains need to cover a small portion of the wall on the sides and at the bottom and top of the windows. This means when you hang them, you will not hang them inside the window using tension rods, but above the window using curtain rods.

The curtains you purchase should be about three times the width of the window and at least 10 inches long. You will find the most effective curtains to be those that reach from floor to ceiling. Depending on your window size, this can constrain your choices.

What weight considerations are there?

Choose the heavier of the curtain options for better soundproofing. Heavier curtains block low-frequency sounds better. Heavier curtains mean you will need to carefully install the rods so that you hang them from the wall studs. Anchor them appropriately with one- to two-inch-long wood wall screws.

What materials considerations are there?

Fashionable soundproof curtains use materials such as velvet, polyester, and suede. Thermal soundproof curtains use a triple-weave fabric that makes them thicker. These types also offer home insulation.

What curtain rod considerations are there?

Purchase your curtain rods after you purchase and receive your soundproof curtains. These curtains weigh more than traditional curtains, so you will need to choose a heavier, thicker curtain rod capable of supporting the soundproof material. One curtain could weigh eight pounds or more, compared to about 2 pounds for traditional light-filtering curtains.

You may also want to consider investing in a wraparound curtain rod if you don’t already have one. This style of curtain rod is more effective at blocking sounds since it attaches to the wall at a curve and allows the curtain to provide a more complete sound barrier.

What color considerations are there?

The only color considerations are that soundproof curtains typically come in fewer colors than traditional curtains. You might have your heart set on a specific color for your décor but avoid that. That color may not be available in soundproof materials. You probably will not find prints or patterns although a few patterned options exist in the most expensive options.

Unless you’re a music star, you probably won’t want to shell out for that level of curtains. You probably won’t need to either if you just want a quieter bedroom or home office. You can easily find the gray, navy blue, black, white, and dark green.

What installation considerations are there?

Finally, consider how easy it will be to install and maintain the soundproof curtains you choose. If you decide on insulation curtains, they should have grommets that allow you to easily hang them from a curtain rod. Audio insulation sheets and industrial blankets may be more challenging to install depending on their design. Try to preview the manufacturer’s installation directions, if possible, before making a purchase.

What maintenance considerations are there?

The low maintenance basically takes care of itself option always wins out. These soundproof curtains can go in the washing machine and the dryer. You can read this online since most manufacturers include their products’ care and cleaning instructions on their website.

Choosing something that you have to dry-clean is abominable. Imagine needing to take down an entire room’s worth of curtains and take them to the cleaners just to get them looking fresh and clean.

Can you soundproof existing curtains?

You can create soundproof quality curtains out of those you currently have by adding additional layers of fabric and using the appropriate fabric. You should choose a tightly woven fabric that has weight to it. Use a fabric designed for soundproof curtains such as felt. Sewing this layer onto the back of your existing curtains will solve part of the problem.

You need curtains the proper width though and that means wider than the window so that you can hang them in a way that the curtains extend past the window by at least six inches. You want to block both sound and light leaks.

Do drapes block sound?

Traditional drapes block a small amount of sound, but this depends on their thickness, length, and width. A sheer drape will not block sound; however, a thick wool drape or polyester would block some sound.

How can you inexpensively soundproof a room?

You can dampen the sounds stemming from the outside by adding thick curtains or blankets to the windows as window coverings. This does not actually soundproof a room though. Soundproofing a room requires soundproof materials in the walls, over the walls, in and over the flooring, in and over the ceiling.

This requires specialized materials to create a soundproof environment. You can block noise using blankets or curtains, but you only reduce it. You would need the professional materials to actually create a soundproof room. If you just want a quieter bedroom, you can add a no-squeak bedframe, a silent tower fan, and a noiseless humidifier.

What materials would it require to create a soundproof room for recording music or a podcast?

To create a genuinely soundproof room such as you would find in a recording studio, you would need to add soundproof insulation to the flooring joists, then above the subfloor add a soundproof liner, a carpet pad, and carpet. In the walls, you would add insulation and on the outside of the wallboard, you would add a layer of the soundproof carpet.

In the ceiling, you would add soundproof insulation in the joists, and on the outside of the wallboard, you would add acoustical ceiling tiles. You would need to add soundproof windows and curtains as well as a soundproof door which you hang a soundproof curtain on or attach soundproof carpeting to the inside of the door.

What are double rods and why would you want them?

The term double rod refers to a curtain rod type that lets you hang two sets of curtains for added soundproofing. Hanging two sets of soundproof curtains, one over the other results in greater noise reduction.

Does the grommets’ material matter?

Yes, the grommets might be made of brass, steel, or string steel. The strongest type, string steel grommets, works best when hanging these curtains since they can handle the added weight. Most use steel and those designed for interior decoration as opposed to soundproofing may use brass.

The top options for these curtains reduce outside distractions and noise, so you can better concentrate, sleep, or enjoy your choice of entertainment such as a good book or a movie. These curtains typically double as blackout curtains and come in a range of colors and sizes.

When you undertake a soundproofing project and hire a professional contractor how many people comprise the team?

Hiring a professional team brings the best results. Expect to meet with three key people in the design and development of your project — the building contractor, sound engineer, and interior decorator. They will work with you to develop the project, then the building contractor will undertake the construction work with a small team of carpenters and finishers. The sound engineer’s contributions include choosing the materials appropriate for the job and their combination. The interior decorator determines with you the styles and colors appropriate for your décor.

What is the difference between sound conditioning and soundproofing?

If you just want to make your home office quieter, you only need to sound absorb or soundproof. If you want to install a room for any type of sound creation or listening, you need to consider acoustics. You would need to determine the needs of the room. Do you need to absorb sounds, soundproof, or sound condition?

• Sound absorption: blocks some of the sound entering or leaving a room.

• Soundproofing: block all sound from entering or leaving the room.

• Sound conditioning manages the room’s sound and acoustics.

You need both soundproofing and sound conditioning when you want to design a high-end listening room, a recording studio, or a home theater. To condition a room, you would need to add more than sound-absorbing or blocking curtains. That only adds to what you block from outside. You would also need to install a soundproof carpet option for sound conditioning.

Who cares about sound conditioning? Well, sound engineers mostly. They use recording studios and listening rooms to create sound recordings and to review them for any editing needs. When you soundproof, you make sure no sound can go through the walls or floors, or ceilings. When you sound condition, you ensure that the sound created in the room does not hang around in the room. A sound engineer wants a sound to only remain for its proper duration — in music the note count of the note.

So, if a guitar player plays an “A minor” chord on their guitar and holds it for a half note — two full counts — the sound engineer wants to record that “A minor” chord for only two full counts. Without sound conditioning, a recording studio booth would cause the note to hang in the air and increase the duration of time it was recorded. The sound engineer needs each sound to only sound for its proper duration, so they condition the room to provide ideal acoustics.

That requires adding materials on all sides — ceiling, walls, floor plus sealing the windows and doors. This might include using an acoustic curtain system, acoustic panel system, or fashioning your own items from acoustic fabric.

When recording sound or closely listening to it for editing, you need no sound from outside the room to enter it. However, you also need a perfectly conditioned room. That means neither too warm nor too cool. That doesn’t refer to the actual temperature. A warm room allows a lot of ambient sounds. You would get a warm recording from a live show in a bar. There would be background noise to cut out, and you would have an energetic air in the room.

Its imperfect structure would allow sound to bounce around the room. You might record some unintended sustains — times when the notes were held for longer than the count and hung in the air. Guitarists use effects pedals to make this happen on purpose, but in a recording studio, you have no warmth. You would have to use the effects pedal to achieve this.

Conversely, a cool room or studio would create an eerily sterile sound. You would have no bounce. If you have ever listened to an old vinyl recording of a classic rock band, it was likely recorded in a warm studio on analog equipment. If you then listen to a later album by the same brand or even a re-mastered version on compact disk (CD) of the same album, you will notice the difference because the later album or re-master took place in a digital recording studio.

That studio would have produced a cool environment and blocked out most of the ambient sound. It would produce an almost too sterile sound with no note ring.

Where can you purchase these sound-absorbing and soundproof curtains?

Many stores offer these types of curtains. You can purchase these online at Amazon.com or eBay.com. You can purchase them locally at most Lowe’s or Home Depot stores. You can also shop at their online stores for a wider selection. Another option includes shopping an audio specialty store, especially one that carries musical instruments. Check stores such as Musician’s Friend which sells musical instruments and recording equipment.
