Why Use Velvet?
Velvet is a textile that has several advantages over other fabrics. Here is a look at four benefits it offers for nightclubs:
Block out light. The thickness of velvet lets you cover up windows and reduce the amount of light that gets into your club. This is a big plus for spaces that rent out their rooms during the day for special events.
Insulate the room. Velvet is thick enough to help insulate a big room, keeping in the heat. It is thick and the fibers are dense. This reduces the amount of energy needed to keep it warm in winter.
Reduce dust and allergies. Their thickness helps prevent dust and microorganisms from proliferating in a room. This is an advantage for people with allergies.
Reduce sound. Nightclubs on busy nights are noisy. That means businesses and residences close by are likely to complain. One way to cut back on the sound that filters out is with velvet curtains. Because they are thick, they can absorb sound when fitted to walls in the club.
