Fabric woven from polyester, designed to reduce glare, heat and light from entering buildings. Suitable for interior commercial and residential applications.
Total Window Concept's Enviroshade & Tecno are woven polyester roller blind fabrics with an optional metallised backing. The product is manufactured from the flame retardant Trevira CS yarn and is suitable for use on indoor roller blinds, skylight blinds and decorative panels.
Fabrics can effectively reduce heat and glare transmitted into internal spaces while still allowing outward vision. Many of the options within this range have a Visual Light Transmittance (VLT) of less than 10% and are therefore effective at reducing glare.
The fabrics can achieve reduction in the demand for air conditioning, reducing electricity consumption and associated greenhouse gases, particularly when used in conjunction with a closely sealed blind system. Actual performance will depend on the hardware configuration used.
Enviroshade & Tecno are available with a metallised backing which is able to reflect solar energy and reduce heat gain. The backing is made from aluminium, a high embodied energy material. However, aluminium backing makes up less than 2% of the product. Non-metallised fabric is designed to resist moisture and is suitable for use in humid areas.
