GREENGUARD

Sheerweave Blinds

GREENGUARD Certi cation ensures products have met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. Phifer was the first manufacturer in the window treatment industry to achieve GREENGUARD certification for interior shading fabrics. Certification is completely voluntary and ensures that the highest industry standards are being applied to maintain indoor air quality for the health and safety of building occupants.

MICROBAN®

Sheerweave Blinds

Phifer SheerWeave fabrics are the only shade fabrics in the world to include Microban protection.

Microban antimicrobial protection works continuously to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration.

• Microban antimicrobial protection is infused into Phifer SheerWeave sun control fabrics for lasting protection that won’t wash off or wear away for the lifetime of the shade.

• SheerWeave fabrics infused with Microban antimicrobial technology are ideal for any

commercial or residential environment where microbes are a concern, including healthcare, hospitality, home, of ce, schools and institutions.

• Most SheerWeave fabrics include Microban® antimicrobial product protection. Microban is the leading technology in antibacterial/antifungal protection.


UV PROTECTION

Sheerweave Blinds

Most SheerWeave fabrics have received the Seal of Approval by the Melanoma International Foundation (MIF) for effectiveness in preventing sun damage to the skin or eyes.


ENERGY SAVINGS

Sheerweave Blinds

Solar heat gain can account for up to 50% of a building’s energy costs according to the U.S. Department of Energy. By reflecting solar energy, Phifer’s broad range of SheerWeave fabrics reduce solar heat gain, lower energy costs and improve comfort. Phifer shade fabrics allow for the use of natural day lighting to reduce the need for artificial lighting and provide additional energy savings.

LEAD FREE

Sheerweave Blinds

Phifer’s entire line of Sheerweave Blinds fabrics is lead free, meeting and far exceeding several window covering industry testing standards for hazardous materials. Sheerweave Blinds interior sun control products comply with RoHS/Directive 2002/95/EC, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission Section 101 and ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2007 for lead content. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, certain levels of exposure to lead, which can be found in everything from painted toys and furniture to soil around a home, can result in a variety of health effects. Even low levels of exposure can be harmful to children. The lead- free stamp marks another con rmation of Phifer’s commitment to remain environmentally responsible.

ACOUSTICAL (NOISE REDUCTION)

Sheerweave Blinds

Driven by LEED environmental objectives, the trend of commercial design is to use more glass with exposed oors and ceilings. With these hard surfaces comes an acoustical challenge that architects and designers must address. Acoustical performance values are expressed by the NRC (Noise Reduction Coef cient) or the SAA (Sound Absorption Average). We have tested a broad range of SheerWeave fabrics for both values based on a free hanging vertical panel to best emulate a roller shade. BASIC 3%, Style 2500, Performance+ Style 2500+ and Style 4901 have overall NRC values of .50-.60 with even more impressive values within frequency ranges of human speech.

Style 4500                                               NRC .15 / SAA .17
Style 4901                                               NRC .60 / SAA .59
