Acoustic Blinds

Texaa’s range of curtains and blinds can provide acoustic solutions for many architectural situations. These made-to-measure systems fit different dimensional requirements.

They contribute to the scenic quality of the space enabling the light levels of a room to be varied or to create visual partitions.

Texaa Acoustic Blinds are made of 3-mm thick black felt, protected on both sides by our Aeria sound-transparent fabric. This unique product is an effective barrier for light, heat and sound.

A hanger plate is concealed in a hem at the top of each slat without any weights. The new format of this hanger plate, an exclusive Texaa patent, locates it as close as possible to the hanging rail to cut out as much light as possible.

Hung in front of a glazed surface, Texaa Acoustic Blinds absorb resonance, filter light and improve people’s comfort.

Placed inside a volume, blinds partition spaces without closing them off, on public or private premises.
