Temptrol® Radiant Curtains
Temptrol® as a curtain liner
With rising energy concerns, maximizing energy efficiency while minimizing cost is of great importance. Using energy efficient windows to slow down heat can cost thousands of dollars, and insulated curtains are bulky and difficult to maneuver. Temptrol® brand fabric is a thin, lightweight fabric that will block heat from entering and exiting your house.
Working as a radiant barrier, it can block radiant heat in both directions while shading you from the hot sun. To make it more cosmetically appealing, Temptrol® is white on one side, so it looks like the curtains themselves. Temptrol® fabric can be sewn on a regular sewing machine, or even heat seamed to appear continuous and seamless, so if you add Temptrol® as a curtain liner, you will feel the difference of a radiant barrier without having to see it.
Light colored fabrics, while resisting heat, allow light to pass easily. While typical blackout fabrics can impede light, they absorb more heat, adding to the energy problem. Temptrol® blocks nearly all of the light while reflecting 95% of the radiant heat. Another aspect of using typical blackout cloth is the fact that, because the cloth is a closed weave cloth, there is a difficulty in providing adequate ventilation. This can leave your home feeling stuffy, even when your window is open. Temptrol® doesn’t have this problem because it is also perforated, allowing breathability. Temptrol® perforations can even prevent condensation.nd increases efficiency in heating.
