The measurements vary slightly depending on the type of curtains to be hung.


Choosing curtain height

The height of your curtains is the distance measured from the top of the curtain rail to the floor.
If you prefer curtains that do not touch the floor, reduce the measured height by 0.8 in (2 cm).
For a more decorative aspect with curtains that fall to the floor, add 1.6 to 2 in (4 to 5 cm) to the measured
height. Curtains that "break" at the floor accentuate the ceiling height in the room.
Whatever you choose, all Moondream curtains are delivered with a heat-activated adhesive band so that you can
adapt your curtains to the height you wish.
We recommend that you hang your curtains to measure where to place the hem.

Special case of grommet curtains
Plan to leave 1 in (2.5 cm) between the top of the curtain rail and your ceiling.
This space will be taken up by the material above the grommets.


Choosing curtain width

Measure the distance between one end of the rail and the other (not including decorative tips).
Remember that the stated dimensions always correspond to the flat curtains.
When taking the measurements, take the specific type of curtain attachment system into account.

  • For curtains with pencil pleats
    For a highly pleated effect, multiply the measurement by 1.5.
    Moondream curtains are sewn with 2.8 in (7 cm) wide pencil pleats.
    Once hung, you simply need to pull on the strings at each end of the pencil pleats to create the desired pleat.

  • For grommet curtains
    Moondream curtains are made with 8 grommets and the top of the curtains is reinforced and blind hem stitched,
    which means that they fall elegantly to the floor to add just the right touch to any interior.
    The diameter of the grommets is 1.6 in (4 cm).
    When the curtains are folded back, the width of the panel is approximately 5.9 in (15 cm).

 

How to measure my curtains

 

How to hem my Moondream curtains?

It is so easy to hem your curtain without sewing!

 


All our Moondream® curtains are delivered with a iron-on-tape enabling you to adjust the dimensions of your curtains to fit your windows.

N.B.: Given the weight of the sound insulation curtain (up to 6.61 pounds), we recommend adding a few stitches post-application to secure the iron-on-tape in place.

APPLICATION

  1. Measure how long you want your curtains to be and lay the curtain with the reverse side facing upwards.
    Fold up the hem and iron the fold (without the iron-on-tape).
  2. Place the iron-on-tape inside the fold.
  3. Iron with a pressing action.
    The curtain is ready to be install!

How to find the best sound insulation solution for your home ?

Soundproof Curtains Buying Guide


What makes a good soundproof curtain ?

An effective soundproof curtain has to be made with multiple layers of different fabrics, be quite thick and heavy.
This means that lightweight curtains are acoustically almost ineffective.
Once hung your curtain will be more effective if pleated because this will improve the sound absorption.

MOONDREAM soundproof curtains are made with 3 different layers and weigh between 4lbs to 7lbs depending
on the length. They have been engineered to muffle the sound coming from the outside to create a more calm and
comfortable interieur. Their performance has been tested and certified by independent laboratories.
On average they reduce sound by up to 7db.


Will a soundproof curtain resolve my noise problem ?

The impact of a soundproof curtain depends of the kind of noise you are experiencing and the construction of your building.
If you’re experiencing for example traffic noise, construction or AC noise the curtain will help to muffle the sounds
but will not block it out completely because no curtain made from fabric is able to do that.

To begin with, motorway sounds are notoriously the most difficult to block since they are made up of mostly low-frequency
sounds. Secondly, the noise does not come in only from your windows but also seeps in through the walls and various
openings. Once in, the noise creates what's called a "rebound effect" - bouncing multiple times on the wall, the floor,
the ceiling. As you can imagine, it is entirely impossible to block sound completly with fabric curtains for your windows alone.

Soundproof curtains alone may not be enough, here some tips to improve their results: We suggest you to use double-sided
tape to seal the curtain’s edges to the wall. It will help to reduce sound migration around and the amount of
sound "rebounding". But keep in mind that, in order to achieve effective sound insulation, your room has to be covered
also with absorbent materials, as for example a rug or seal strip self adhesive foam on your windows or doors.


Can soundproof curtains block traffic noise ?

Our soundproof curtains have been designed to block the outside noise as much as possible with fabric.
The results depend a lot on the kind of noise you are experiencing and the results you hope to achieve.
To be more explicit: if you are experiencing constant traffic noise, our curtains will definitely help to muffle the noise
and increase your comfort level but any soundproof curtain made from fabric will never be able to block the sound to 100%.

The combination of the different fabric layers in MOONDREAM’s soundproof curtains will create a quieter environment
for you, but as explained above, the sound is also coming through the wall so reducing its “rebound effect”
demands further sound insulating measures.


Can soundproof curtains block voices?

Although curtains can't entirely block voices, they can help muffle sounds people make when they speak, sing, laugh, etc.
If you live on a noisy street with restaurants and bars, MOONDREAM soundproof curtains will definitely improve
the quality of your sonic environment and provide a significant noise reduction.

You'll still hear, say, the rumble of traffic but it will be muffled and softened - definitely easier on the ears.


Can soundproof curtains be used to block inside noise?

Once the noise is in your room, happens a “rebound effect.” This means the sound bounces everywhere across the room
(from the ceiling to the walls, and the floor). So how do our curtains work, and how do they absorb sounds to keep
them from echoing around the room?

Our MOONDREAM curtains are made with 3 layers (or 4 for our soundproof divider curtain). These layers are heavy and thick,
the main quality needed to absorb inside sounds. In a recording studio fos instance, on top of the usual soundproofing
material, they help to keep a "neutral sound".

MOONDREAM curtains have been tested in independent laboratories, and proven to absorb up to 9db of internal noise.


What are the different types of sound?

There are many different categories of sounds, from natural to man-made. In big cities, we are confronted to man made
sounds, often quite agressive. We try to find solutions to create a quieter environment and get rid of: continuous noise
(like machinery that runs without interruption), intermittent noise (trains, aircrafts, sirens), impulsive noise (construction equipment)
and low frequency noise (traffic). We are exposed to low frequency noise constantly. This is also the hardest type of
noise to reduce, let alone block. As such, to cut low frequency noise, the best bet is to mix different solutions:
soundproofed windows, noise-reducing curtains, rugs, etc.
