Experience the darkness of eclipse curtains.

Not all curtains block light, in fact most don't. In order to block light effectively, curtains need to be made of a light-blocking fabric, and manufactured in a manner that weaves the fibers together in an especially tight manner. Very few manufacturers have the BROAD EXPERIENCE to manufacture ENERGY-SAVING blackout curtains, and no one puts more effort and testing into the process than eclipse curtains.Frequently asked questions.
Do blackout curtains block enough light to keep my room pitch black, even in bright sunlight?
Because light is so powerful, no woven curtain can block 100%, but here are some things to consider: Most thermaweave buyers are very satisfied with 99% light blocking performance, but for more of a "pitch black" room, consider thermaback curtains or use a thermaliner behind an existing curtain, because these use a light-impermeable foam backing. Always configure your curtain rods to ensure a tight fit around the sides; this is how most light enters a window fitted with black-out curtains.
Why do I still see some light when my black-out curtains are drawn? Don't they block 99% of light?
Yes, all eclipse curtains are proven in independent laboratory tests to block over 99% of light. But there are two factors that result in some light still being seen by our eyes: Because light is so powerful, even 1% of light is still visible to our eyes. Always configure your curtain rods to ensure a tight fit around the sides; this is how most light enters a window fitted with black-out curtains. Fun facts about light-blocking. Eclipse curtains can reduce light by a factor of over 200 times. For example, light entering an eclipse curtain at 100,000 lux can be reduced down to 500 lux. That is like reducing the size of the Empire State Building from 1250 feet down to just over 6 feet, reducing the weight of a Hummer H2 from 6400 pounds down to just 32 pounds, or slowing a speeding bullet from 2000 mph to 10 mph. however you cut it, it's pretty amazing when you consider just how much light is blocked out by an eclipse blackout curtain.
