When the weather heats up, it can be tempting to turn your air conditioner up higher and higher. After all, it’s hot outside! But that’s not always the best solution to keep your space comfortable while also lowering your energy bills. That’s where blackout curtains come in handy. Blackout curtains work by covering all available light entry points into your house, preventing the sun’s heat from seeping into your home and forcing your air conditioning system to work less hard at cooling your living space.

Our AP Blackout curtains are also known as sun-blocking curtains because they act as a protective barrier against the harmful heat waves and UV light radiations coming from the sun. Its opaque material reflects back the sunrays before it could enter your home! 

When the curtain serves purposes such as blackouts and anti-UV, they can also meet your needs for light control in many different rooms. We recommend buying blackout curtains in New Zealand because that’ll block out all those pesky rays! When a curtain has specialized functions, it can be beneficial in many different interior spaces. Even the furniture, floors and other indoor items exposed to direct sunlight for a long time will cause a series of problems such as fading or cracks. Today we want to introduce some curtains with heat-shielding and UV protection functions, which can effectively solve the previous problems.

Blackout Curtains:

As the name suggests, these are thick curtains that block sunlight and excessive heat from coming through windows. Many households have found themselves using blackout curtains for their convenience and many others have shared testimonies about how much they’ve benefitted them as well. 

These curtains offer professional-grade soundproofing and thermoregulation. The curtain features an eye-catching grommet design that offers extra benefits like privacy and air circulation without sacrificing style or quality. A side effect of this unique design is that it creates a chic, modern appearance for your space. Each piece is made using 100% polyester to ensure maximum durability while acting as an energy-efficient resource in helping air conditioners cool up a room faster and also, preserve the coolness longer. Additionally, during winters, these curtains help keep the rooms warmer.

At AP Curtain we use the Weave-based heat shielding process: This special weaving technique uses threads and woven fabrics to organize into intricate patterns for curtains with high-quality insulation properties. During summer, the curtains provide protection from the sun and allow you a cool night’s sleep. And during winter, these window coverings have an insulating effect that provides warmth so you can enjoy a cozy night’s rest.

In order to conduct an air-tight test for this product, a specimen was installed in a laboratory at 1.5 times the original size to see how much air would pass through it. Results showed that there were few leaks when using thermal imaging methods once after 2 hours of exposure from radiation coming from outside the window and inside the room (-50°C – 20°C). (*Note* These images might differ due to date/temperature)
