Noise is disruptive. It interrupts communication, reduces job performance and causes fatigue. Vescom’s transparent acoustic curtain fabrics are designed to combat sound pollution and its negative health effects while maintaining connection in today’s open-plan environments.
These productivity- and wellbeing-focused solutions reduce echo time, absorb sound and improve comprehension, making them ideal for offices, conference rooms, hotel lobbies and multifunctional spaces. Equally ideal for interiors rich in sound-reflective surfaces – concrete, glass and marble, for instance – Vescom’s acoustic materials soften both reverberation and the space itself.
Made from polyester FR to meet the strictest global standards for public buildings, Vescom’s transparent acoustic curtain fabrics provide five times more sound absorption than standard sheer curtain fabrics. This is thanks to the porosity of the fabrics, as well as the special weaving and yarn technology used in their production. Different levels of sheen are produced by the special yarn, and varying degrees of translucency are available within the collection. Despite their strength and superior acoustic performance, these high-quality curtain fabrics are extremely lightweight.

Unlike heavy, cumbersome fabrics, Vescom’s acoustic sheers offer all the advantages of a sound-absorbing material while maintaining visual connections within an interior.
The porosity of Vescom’s acoustic sheers and the special weaving and yarn technology used in their production enable them to absorb up to five times more sound than other sheers. The use of the special yarn creates a subtle sheen in the fabric. Vescom’s technologically advanced transparent acoustic sheers minimize sound disturbance while maximizing visual connections and daylight.
Vescom acoustic sheers have a sound absorption coefficient alpha between αw 0.5 and αw 0.8 in the optimal installation 15 cm away from the reflective surface and fully pleated. In the same installation conditions, a standard lightweight sheer has an alpha of αw 0.15.
The words ‘translucency’ and ‘airy’ aren’t typically associated with acoustic materials. But that’s what you’ll find in Vescom’s collection of strong yet lightweight sound-absorbing curtain fabrics. Unlike heavy, cumbersome fabrics, Vescom’s acoustic sheers offer all the advantages of a sound-absorbing material while maintaining visual connections within an interior.
Despite their strength and superior acoustic performance, these high-quality curtain fabrics are extremely lightweight.
The ability to wash and clean curtains is crucial for contract interiors – spaces like hotels, for instance, which experience a high turnover of individuals, as well as hospitals, where hygiene is non-negotiable. All acoustic sheers are washable at 70°C. Textiles must be washed at a minimum temperature of 60°C to kill bacteria, viruses and dust mites.
Capri, Corsica, Formoza, Marmara and Tay are woven on a double loom, giving them a width of between 295 cm and 306 cm. To achieve a seamless and cost-effective floor-to-ceiling solution, double width fabrics can be rotated 90° so that their width covers the height of the room.
The fabrics are flame retardant and suitable for the contract market because 100% flame retarding yarns have been used. The transparent, acoustic curtain fabrics meet the most stringent European standard for public buildings.
