Ace

Made from recycled polyester, Ace is an opaque curtain with a sustainable footprint. The textile is the result of Louise Sigvardt’s expertise in colours, patterns and fashion design fused with a technologically advanced material. To produce Ace, discarded plastic bottles are collected and transformed into reusable filaments. This is a process that is much more energy-efficient than for virgin polyester and reduces the use of natural resources. Ace’s graphic pattern of tiny squares that is reminiscent of sports clothing pays homage to its technological origin. Yet, the curtain’s heavy, almost sculptural folds call associations with the classic velvet curtain. The colour palette of deep, bold and surprising hues underline these playfully contrasting expressions.

LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

Visual light transmission {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightTransmission}}%

Light transmittance indicates the percentage of the visible light penetrating the textile. Densely woven textiles in dark colours usually have a lower light transmittance, whereas loosely woven fabrics in light colours allow more light to pass through.

There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

Care instructions curtain textiles

Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the curtain textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.

  • Regular care

    If possible, we recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat and Kinnasand are supplied bearing a maintenance label. We recommend the use of a light duty detergent without optical brighteners for all items in which, according to care instructions, washing is possible. In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants. Please take into account a possible shrinkage between 1 – 3 %. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
