Noise Reduction Properties of Cellular Shades Announced by Blinds Chalet
Products/Design Ideas on Shades
Cellular blinds have long been known for their insulating and energy saving properties. However, cellular blinds also offer an added benefit of reducing noise. Studies show that long-term exposure to loud noises can result in hearing loss. Cellular shades trap noise and air in pockets between the shades to lower noise levels entering the house. Double cell shades offer added noise reduction over single cell shades, yet both offer a level of relief from noises such as trains, traffic and loud neighbors.
Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet said, “Window treatments should do more than increase the aesthetic value of a house,they should provide UV protection, decrease glare, help insulate homes and reduce noise. A good blind will increase the property value of your home and make living at home a more comfortable experience.”
Translucent single and double cell shades allow light to enter, while reducing noise. These shades suit family rooms, kitchens and dining rooms. Blackout cellular shades provide added privacy for bedrooms, bathrooms and home theatre rooms. Spun lace shades such as Blind Chalet’s Ultimate Cordless ¾ Single Cell Shades offer almost double the noise reduction qualities as regular materials.
