Purify your air with GUNRID curtains

Good air indoors is as important for your well-being as it is outdoors. But in your home, the products you use and the things you do give off air pollutants. You could reduce these with an electric air purifier. But why not just let your curtains do the job?

How do GUNRID curtains work?

The fabric of the curtains has been treated with a mineral-based coating. This reacts to natural light and breaks down indoor air pollutants such as acetaldehyde. It’s simpler than an electric air purifier, better for your electricity bill and you don’t need to change any filters.

Why develop products like GUNRID curtains?

The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. Furnishings that help people breathe cleaner air contribute to healthier lives, especially ones like curtains that almost everyone has in their homes. The technology may even be used with other textile products in the future. GUNRID curtains are also made from 100% recycled polyester, which means less impact on the environment and a new life for all those old PET bottles!
