The Commonly Used Blackout Curtain Fabrics

Blackout refers to a foam-backed, opaque fabric used to black out light. Blackout fabrics are most commonly found in hotel rooms as curtain linings or drapery fabrics, blocking much of the light that would otherwise enter through a window when the curtains are closed. For travelers, third shift workers, and parents of babies, blackout is an essential element in the bedroom. Besides window coverings, other uses for blackout fabrics include wallpaper, movie projector screens and planetarium domes.

A ‘3-pass’ blackout can be used as a decorative fabric and blackout lining all in one fabric. A ‘2-pass’ cannot be used this way, because the black foam is visible through the fabric side of the material. In addition to blocking light, blackout fabrics also insulate and have noise-dampening qualities, due to their density and opacity.

Mostly these blackout curtains are used more in the UK and Germany, but during the winter season, demand of Blackout Curtains reaches to 300% than the normal buying. And that too because of extreme weather, where the blackout curtains help in keeping the home warm. Types of Blackout Curtains are below
