Is anyone else experiencing this?

How Curtain Linings Work

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Palmerston North

During winter it is easy to lose heat, and in summer it is easy to overheat a home if windows are not appropriately covered. Lining is a cost-effective addition to help protect your curtain fabric, while providing some added insulation for the home, reducing window heat loss by 40-60% when closed. Working all year round, lined drapery is an important tool in creating a thermal insulation barrier. Lined curtains have an added lining layer on the back of the curtain which can be attached to the curtain or can be hung on a separate track behind the curtain.


Linings help your window furnishings last longer: With a good quality lining, your chosen curtain fabric is shielded from the harsh UV rays of the sun, preventing your fabric from fading.


Linings provide added privacy: A lot of fabrics are only somewhat private, especially at night. Adding a lining to your window furnishings will increase the opacity of the treatment, ensuring complete privacy.


Linings provide increased insulation: Insulated linings trap air in and between the layers of fabric, preventing the heat in your homes escaping out the windows, and offering significant savings on your energy bill.


Linings can provide light control: Ideal for bedrooms and media rooms, block-out linings allows you to block light coming through a window and keep your rooms dark in the middle of the day.

Linings improve the appearance of window furnishings: The colours of your chosen fabric can appear richer when a lining is placed behind them. Without a lining, sunlight coming through a fabric can make the colours appear washed out during the day.



Call us or your local Curtain makers to discuss adding a lining to your current curtains.

Limited Coverage of "Nature Calls" by the Guardian

It has been interesting to read the NZ Herald Whanganui and the Horowhenua Chronicle about the PNCC "Nature Calls" proposals.
Articles Headlines "Stink over Sewage " River Users don't want big City Waste." "Sewage Could be Earner ""Land Based waste treatment urged."
Public meetings, calling Foxton and Coastal residents to act to support "Restoring the Manawatu River." with Option 3 having the least impact on waterways.
Christina Paton, a long time advocate for the Manawatu River has said that wastewater discharged to land would not have to be treated to the high level as required to dispose to the river. The land based treated water disposal is used in the Horowhenua with some areas having storm water going into wetlands. If PNCC had changed to land base in 1999 the cost would have been a fraction of what it will cost today.
To offset the cost of purchasing land I have suggested that as the coastal wetlands in the Manawatu have declined in the past 40 years, that piping our treated waste water to DOC administered wetlands should be an option for consideration. I also think the State owned coastal forests could benefit from treated waste water and some should be stored for either irrigation and rural fire fighting.
Why is it necessary to consider land based as the best option?
The Government will be releasing their Fresh Water Policy that sets the standards for resource consents applications to comply with and administered by Horizons Regional Council. Strong advocacy over many years has called for the discharge to rivers or waterways to be discontinued.
Why has the Guardian not given Palmerston North residents information about how their neighbour views our problem? Why has it been reported widely in the other community papers, but not in the Guardian?
