PLUS MINUS 25°C

a temperature regulating curtain

In the coming years, temperatures will rise worldwide. This means that we rely more and more on cooling equipment in the summer months. In comparison to conventional devices this curtain is a self maintaining cooling/warming system without using electricity.

The fabric is printed with phase changing material. Above 25°C the microencapsulated PCM absorbs heat when it’s changing from a solid to a liquid state. When the room temperature drops again the absorbed heat is released. It has a cooling effect in summer and a warming effect in winter.
