Product description

Highlight is a clean, fresh dim out characterised by intricate structural and tonal depth. As you look closely at the curtain, a directional melange effect emerges, seemingly from deep within the weaving construction.

Despite being made from flame retardant polyester, Highlight has a cotton-like, natural expression. It derives its signature depth and extreme density from its multidimensional construction, which unites three layers.

The expansive palette for the curtain calls to mind oceans on overcast days. It ranges from delicate pale shades, such as Pearl Grey to deep Jade and Dark Navy.

Performance
  • 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. 

  • Absorption 0.55/Class D (Absorption flat) 0.95/Class A (Absorption folded)

    Acoustic absorption is indicated as αw-value which approximately corresponds to the percentage of sound absorbed. For instance, an αw-value of 0,4 translates into 40% absorption of sound.  Acoustic absorption of a textile is measured in its flat and draped state.

  • Airflow 2073 Pa s/m

    Airflow resistance influences the sound absorbing qualities of a textile. Typically, the denser the construction of the textile, the higher the value. 

  • Fire tests DIN 4102 B1 • NF P 92 507 M1 • BS 5867 part 2 type B • NFPA 701 • CAN ULC S102 • AS/NZS 1530.3

    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.
