Work shoes for biking outside?

You need the right kind of shoes when you’re going to bike at this time of year. If you’re biking to work everyday you need shoes to keep you warm and comfortable. You jumped out of bed at the first alarm clock and warmed up excitedly with your morning coffee. Put on your favorite work clothes, keys, phone, and cash charged… hop on your bike and off you go. Only to get caught in the most heavy type of rain.

What to look for in shoes for bike commuting

  • hard/tough sole
  • waterproof
  • not too difficult
  • comfortable material
  • support
  • good stop
  • Design – important if you’re keeping them for your work day
  • easy to enter


Challenge: strong wind

I don’t know anyone who likes to fight in strong winds. Even tailwind rewards aren’t attractive enough because tailwinds are short-lived compared to the time spent fighting headwinds and crosswinds. But when the flags flutter and the trees sway, there are a few things you can do to make an outdoor drive more appealing.

Headwind Out, Tailwind Home:

Adjust your route so you can ride headwinds fresh. If you’re riding in hours or kilojoules (as training typically determines his volume), add time to headwinds to account for the fact that you ride faster and work less on the way back. Windy rides are better when you get a moment’s rest. Look for a route that provides a windbreak in the form of trees or houses, or change direction frequently to avoid direct exposure to headwinds for extended periods of time. For example, in Colorado Springs, I often ride on bike paths and residential areas on windy days.

Don’t fight the wind:

People get exhausted from pushing too hard to maintain a “normal” pace in headwinds. This is a normal reaction. You push back because the wind pushes you. But you can’t win this push match, so stop paying attention to speed or pace and focus instead on perceived effort and power output.


Work Shoes for biking to work

If you’re biking to work you will need good shoes. When you’re at work you don’t want to change shoes all the time so work boots are a great opportunity to free some time. Strong and comfortable shoes are important. Check out this website for strong and comfortable work boots.

Custom wood blinds

With curtains, you can easily control the light you need and strike the right balance between privacy and visibility. You can choose the width from 25 mm to 50 mm, depending on your style. Available in different colors and configurations, so you’ll always have the perfect window decoration in your home. When we see each other different canopy models have different features and configuration options. To help you make the right choice, we briefly explain the differences and similarities between the types of curtains. Curtains are available in PVC, wood and aluminum. Each material has advantages and disadvantages. I like to explain.

What are wooden blinds made of?

Wooden blinds are made of abachi wood. This wood is lighter, stronger and has a deeper grain than basswood. Optional abachi wood grain and natural lines make each wood curtain unique. Wood blinds are more stable than aluminum slats. By using wood instead of aluminum, the slats are less likely to sag. This property of the material is especially useful if you have children or pets. Short of creating a warm atmosphere and preventing damage quickly? Then choose the wooden version of the curtains.

Aluminum blinds

Aluminum blinds are often chosen for its ease of use because of its modern, light lines. It is also highly resistant to moisture and easy to clean. Finally, you can leave the bar completely closed, but always be careful. How exactly does it work? Aluminum blinds can come with a small hole drilled. During the day, you can see out, but passersby cannot see in. When it’s dark, just rotate the slats to get the effect. A small selection of colors for aluminum blinds:

PVC blinds

PVC blinds are made of plastic and have been a popular form of window covering for years, in part because of their ease of maintenance and privacy. PVC curtains are an economical solution with the beautiful look of wood and the properties of PVC.

Bedroom curtains

When choosing new curtains for your bedroom, there are a few things to consider. You obviously want them to look good and match your interior style, but perhaps even more important is whether they will lose strength and to what degree. The degree of occlusion is expressed as a percentage. For example, a curtain can block 75% of daylight, but it can also block 95% of light and even darken 100%! So pay close attention to this when making your choice. If you want to darken your room in a unique way, order curtains with pleats instead of rings. The rings still allow sunlight to enter the room.

Blackout curtains for the bedroom

Light blocking fabrics, also called blackout fabrics, provide complete light blocking. They block 100 percent of the light thanks to a light-blocking coating on the back of the fabric. Light blocking fabrics are useful in rooms that need to be very dark, such as bedrooms. They are also usually cheaper because you don’t have to line the curtains. view our bedroom curtains here

blackout roller blinds for the bedroom

The most frequently chosen product in the blackout curtains category are roller blinds. When the roller blinds lose power, the curtain is fitted with 100% light-blocking fabric. For the back, you have two choices: A heat-resistant white backing or the same color as the front. For optimal blackout, choose blinds with side guides. These also close off the sides of the fabric. This prevents light from entering through the sides.

Dim out curtains if blackout curtains are too dark for you

Dim out curtains darken the room, but not 100%. Our dim out curtains are about 80% lightproof, meaning only 20% of the light passes through the fabric. The fabrics are soft, have a nice sheen and create lots of space. Made to measure up to 1000 cm wide and 460 cm high.

4 Oplossingen om een luidruchtig huis te bestrijden

Een van de grootste prikkels die mensen in hun huis ervaren, is lawaai. Dit kan komen door een drukke omgeving, bijvoorbeeld als je in de binnenstad of in de buurt van een spoorlijn woont.

Maar geluid kan ook worden ervaren als je in een rustige omgeving woont, zoals van je buren of zelfs je huisgenoten. Als je boven probeert te werken en constant hoort wat je partner doet, kun je je natuurlijk niet concentreren. Om dit te voorkomen, biedt deze blog 3 oplossingen om je huis geluidsarm te maken.

1. Cellulose geluidsisolatie

Cellulose is een speciaal materiaal gemaakt van krantenpapier met een goede geluidsisolatie. Krantenpapier bestaat uit losse vlokken (niet brandbaar) om kleine gaatjes in vloeren, plafonds en plafonds te vullen. Door deze losse vlokken onder hoge druk in deze kleine ruimtes te blazen is het huis goed geïsoleerd en maakt het geen geluid meer. Het werkt zowel voor geluid dat van buiten komt als voor geluid dat uit verschillende kamers in hetzelfde huis komt.

2. Dubbele beglazing

Er zijn altijd stukken die niet gevuld kunnen worden met cellulose, namelijk ramen. Het maakt ook veel lawaai in huis. Daarom is dubbel glas het beste wat u kunt doen. Dubbele beglazing isoleert geluid doordat de twee ruiten op kleine afstand van elkaar zijn verbonden. De afstand tussen de twee ramen is luchtdicht, waardoor er weinig of geen geluid doordringt.

3. Verander het interieurontwerp

Bovenstaande oplossingen waren vooral gericht op het huis zelf, dwz. het dak, de vloer en de ramen. Geluidsoverlast kan echter ook worden verminderd door het interieur te veranderen. Zachte materialen zorgen voor geluidsabsorptie. Dus leg het tapijt neer, hang de gordijnen op en koop een stoffen bank. Daarnaast werkt het ook om grote kamers in huis op te delen in kleinere kamers, bijvoorbeeld door een kast haaks op de muur te plaatsen. Tenslotte fungeren planten ook nog eens als een goede buffer om geluidsoverlast tegen te gaan!

4. De juiste raamdecoratie

Gordijnen helpen zeker om geluid buiten te houden, ze elimineren geluid niet volledig, daarom praten we liever over geluiddempende gordijnen. geluidsabsorberende gordijnen geplaatst voor verschillende bedrijven en particulieren, waaronder restaurant Utrecht voor een popconcert in Tivoli en enkele huizen nabij Schiphol en het stadscentrum.

Geluidsabsorberende gordijnen helpen geluid te voorkomen. Dit is zeker geen oplossing die het geluid 100% buiten houdt. Gordijnen zonder extra/dikke stof zijn niet geschikt voor geluidsisolatie. Het is de extra stof die geluid dempt en de akoestiek verbetert. Dit leidt tot (gestoffeerde) gordijnen voor de beste geluidsisolatie. Isolerende gordijnen bestellen?  bekijk het aanbod van paxraamdecoratie
