How Do Blockout Curtains Work?
Blockout curtains can be produced in a number of different ways. Here at Quickfit, we use two different types of technology to produce our range of blockout curtains. Each technology has its own advantages so before ordering blockout curtains online with us consider what features you are looking for from your blockout curtains and if your chosen style will provide these features.
Our thermal weave blockout curtains are made using tightly woven fabric that varying degrees of light-blocking, these types of fabrics also have thermal and noise reducing qualities. Due to the way in which thermal weave fabric is produced, your finished curtain will not require backing or lining and will have a soft and tactile drape.
Due to the coating or back used for thermal layered blockout curtains, this option has superior light blocking qualities. However, due to the foam coating or backing that is applied to the reverse of the fabric, these curtains tend to have a much more structured drape.
How to Clean and Maintain Blockout Curtains
The best way to keep your blockout curtains looking their best is by keeping them clean and well maintained. How you clean your curtains will depend upon the type of fabric your curtains are made from. As a general rule of thumb, most of our thermal weave curtains can be hand or machine washed, whereas our thermal layered fabrics may require dry cleaning. That being said, it’s always best to check the care label and also spot test any new cleaning methods on an inconspicuous area of your curtains prior to cleaning.
