Any experience with soundproof curtains?


Hi all, I have a second question today, thanks in advance!

I am looking to install a soundproof curtain in front of the sliding door attached. Does anyone have experience with soundproof curtains and can recommend any in particular? In general do they work to insulate somewhat from sound?

The goal is to insulate from sound and look esthetically pleasing.

Thanks,
Miles

Re: Any experience with soundproof curtains?


I never installed any in 28 years of doing it.



Before I looked it up I was inclined to say a heavier fabric, with thermal suede lining and inner lining would be about as good as it gets. I installed a lot of those higher end products over the years and they did reduce noise levels.


It appears that there are some sound reducing things now that I've not dealt with.
