New Curtains Block Sound, Bring In Light

Although there are plenty of sound-cancellation solutions such as opaque noise-blocking walls and sound-reflecting glasses, EMPA has created a truly innovative fabric that meets somewhere in the middle. EMPA's new textile is both lightweight and translucent allowing you to block out sounds without sacrificing all loss of view.

Working with textile experts, acoustical engineers and computer modelers, EMPA has finally been able to conquer the difficult task of noise cancellation in a thin and malleable fabric material. The result of their dedication lead to an innovative fabric that has proven to be five times more soundproof than other curtains while remaining both fireproof and translucent enough to let in amounts of daylight. EMPA's new fabric will be perfect for those homeowners who are looking to keep the noise out and the light in.
