Top 3 Benefits of Using Blackout Curtains in Bangkok

Top 3 Benefits of Using Blackout Curtains in Bangkok

Living in Bangkok means living with the heat and the sun light. Every time you step out of your house it is an instant combat against the Bangkok heat. A short five minute walk equals drenching perspiration. The first thing anybody wants after returning home is a refreshing shower and a comfy chair to sit and relax in a cool, comfortable setting, away from all the heat and sun radiation. This is where blackout curtains come in. The primary purpose of installing blackout curtains is to help keep your home cool and maintain the indoor temperature from heating up. They act as the dual-function insulation device keeping the outside heat from entering in, and preventing the cool A/C air currents from escaping into the atmosphere outside.

When you are living indoors, normal curtains could not help maintain the cold air currents from your A/C from diffusing outside. Normal curtains do not have that tightly knitted black lining materials that blackout curtains have. However, please make sure that the blackout curtains are of a good and thick variety. Many curtains are sold under the name “blackout curtains” however like most products, they come in a variety of qualities and thicknesses. The thin varieties would not be able to block out the sun light as well as the thick varieties, so the name “blackout curtains” is not the ‘be all and end all’ of curtains. They only indicate that some blackout linings have been stitched within the curtain fabrics. To get the really high quality curtains, you have to make sure to touch and feel the fabric textures and test out the fabric against the light to measure the translucency of the curtains. Blackout curtains do not block out sun light 100%, some thin varieties only block out 70-80% of the light, the thicker varieties can block out more. To make sure you get a 100% sun light blocking quality, you could request for a silver black out lining to be added to your curtains. This way you would be sure that no light or heat is passing through your curtains during the afternoon heat.

Blackout curtains simply look awesome. They come in a variety of colors and designs. Some fabric designs have flowery patterns while others have more modern, simple patterns. A great number of black out curtains are made in simple, no design colors for customers who prefer curtains that way. I personally like some simple but nice looking patterns on my curtains. Some curtains look great with the diamond patterns while others look better on modern rectangle patterns.
No matter what designs or colors you love, blackout curtains and drapes will always be the better option for window dressing. The decision to invest in blackout curtains is and will always be a wise choice. This is why blackout curtains are extremely popular, not only in Thailand, but on a global scale!

3 Types of Blackout Curtains: What are they?

Blackout curtains are especially popular in Thailand due to our country’s hot, tropical climate.

Blackout curtains are curtains made with fabrics that are able to block out sunlight and ultraviolet radiation more effectively and efficiently than traditional curtain fabrics. However, there are 3 main varieties, and each of them have differing qualities and benefits. They are not only popular among hotels and resorts, they are also highly popular among condos, apartments, and houses.

The varieties of blackout curtains are foam backed, silicone backed, and black yarn woven. Let’s look at the different varieties and assess their key similarities and differences.

Foam Backed Blackout Curtains: The foam backed curtains are made from curtain fabrics that have been bonded with acrylic foam material at the surface layer. This foam lining is used to protect against sun rays as well as provide insulation from the cold and the heat. The benefits of using this variety of blackout curtains are that they provide extra insulation against the cold, and not also completely block out sunlight, ensuring that our rooms are dark and cool even during the brightest and hottest afternoons. The drawback of using foam-laminated blackout curtains are that they are relatively prone to disintegrate or crack after a lengthy period of time or during cleaning. Their relatively shorter life span means that they would have to be replaced sooner than other forms of curtains. There are also questions about their safety in terms of the potential health hazard of being constantly exposed to acrylic polymer. Another drawback is of using foam-backed curtains is in terms of aesthetics. Since these curtains are lined with relatively stiff polymers, they are not as flexible and pliable as 100% fully fabric woven curtains.

Silicone (Rubber) Backed Blackout Curtains: Silicone backed blackout curtains (also known as rubber backed blackout curtains) are made of curtain fabrics that have been lined with latex rubber material. The rubber is also used to protect the interior from sun radiation and the environmental temperature differences.  The benefits of using this variety of blackout curtains are similar to that of foam backed blackout curtains, the only difference is the material being used. The drawbacks are also similar to in terms of being prone to cracking, causing sunlight to be able to seep through the cracks. Rubber backed blackout curtains are also not as flexible nor as pliable as 100% fully fabric woven curtains, so they would not be able to drape as beautifully.

Triple Weave Blackout Curtains: This variety of blackout curtains uses black yarn weaving as the filtering layer helping to protect homes from the ultraviolet radiation and the sunlight. The black yarn is woven into the curtain fabric, creating three layers where the the black yarn threads are sandwiched in the middle. The benefits of using triple weave blackout curtains are that they look aesthetically pleasing on both sides of the fabric. In fact, certain triple weave blackout curtains are manufactured to be able to use both sides of the fabric as the front face of the curtains. Because this type of curtains is 100% fabric woven, they are also as flexible and pliable as traditional curtain fabrics. They are also not prone to crack as they are not backed by any external material, so they have a significantly extensive life cycle. The primary drawback of using triple weave blackout curtains is that they are not 100% sunlight blocking. They only block 80-90% of the sunlight, with darker color fabrics being more able to block out sunlight than lighter color fabrics. Because they do not completely block out the sunlight, some people prefer to call them “dim-outs” instead.

The preference for each type of blackout curtains depends on the purpose and individual taste. Some people prefer to get foam-backed or rubber backed blackout curtains for the function of being able to completely block out sunlight, while others do not require curtains to be able to block out the sunlight completely, but they still prefer that the curtains can block out significantly more sunlight than traditional curtains. All the three types of blackout curtains are popular in the Thai curtains market, ranging from hotels and resorts to modern houses and condos.
