insulating curtains

Posted by Kathy Cooke at December 08. 2005

I need to replace a 20 foot square highly insulating, automatic roll-up curtain. The manufacturer is gone. Hunter Douglas and Window quilt make nothing that large.

My main concern is insulating value. The replacement does not have to roll up, but ideally should be automated.

I have had no luck on the internet.

This is a component of my passive solar system, and i am getting desparate!!

Black out double or triple cellular shades have an R-5 or better insulation value.

Does Lutron have something like this, remote controlled solar shades or something.

Window Quilt is the only good supplier I've found. Too much air gets around the cellular shades.

Maybe you can add some vertical and horizontal muntins in order to use 4 or 6 separate quilts. In fact, you must already have muntins, because nobody makes 20'x 20' glass!

That is a reasonable approach. Add intermediate tracks to the intermediate window mullions.
