When the first frosts of winter fall, windows, French doors or bay windows sometimes let a gust of unpleasantly cold air into the house. For this, you can simply implement an inexpensive and very effective solution: installing cold-proof curtains. The simplest solutions are often the best. In fact, thanks to the insulating lining, the thermal curtain prevents the penetration of cold from the outside and retains the heat inside.
What are cold-proof curtains?
Thermal insulation curtains are a product specifically designed to retain heat in a room and maintain a comfortable room temperature. Refrigerated curtains are thicker and heavier than traditional curtains. They are usually made of insulating materials like velvet, cotton, polyester or even linen. These components help stop cold air from circulating and help keep the heatin your home.
In addition to their thermal properties, they also incorporate soundproofing, naturally protecting the room from prying eyes. Some thermal drapes are designed specifically for winter protection, while others are the opposite and provide thermal protection in all seasons, be it winter or summer. The special feature of the cold tent is that it has a specially designed cold liner.
These thick curtains are also blackout. However, they are installed like any other blind, using rods or rails. In fact, they can be hung on eyelet curtain rods or folding curtain tracks.
