Blackout Curtains

Motorised Curtain Tracks

With a huge range of flame retardant fabrics to choose from, we custom make your contract and specialist blackout curtains to your exact specifications. Including photographic studios, laboratories, theatres, offices, board rooms hotels and more.

Blackout curtains are more popular than ever before, finding a range of uses within both business and home environments. At Corona Contracts we design and manufacture all of our blackout curtains at our facility in Preston, then install them ourselves for our customers. Because we control each stage of the process, we’re able to provide the highest quality fit and finish available today.

Why blackout curtains?

Traditionally a staple of cinemas and upmarket hotels, curtains offering total blackout have grown in popularity and are now installed in many businesses and even residential buildings. The value of sleep should not be understated, but at the same time we all want access to as much natural light as possible. Blackout curtains offer the solution; allow all natural in when you want it then completely block it for deeper, more restful sleep. In order to be properly effective however, it is essential that these curtains are properly fitted to their installation space, which is why Corona manufacture all blackout curtains to order.

The benefits and uses of blackout curtains go far beyond better sleep, though. Offices and conference suites can benefit greatly from the light control they offer. We often work in offices which are fitted with floor to ceiling windows. Whilst these are visually very pleasing, they allow through such a huge amount of light that presentation screens, whiteboards and video conference equipment can be near impossible to use. Blackout curtains completely eliminate this light problem, allowing for increased concentration and focus and uninterrupted use of conference and office facilities.
