sustainability


The Curtain Machine supplies a range of sun control products and fabrics which serve to reduce energy consumption. These products use manufacturing methods which are designed to minimise the impact on the environment with low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions. Green planet considerations are a priority at a time when global warming is in the hearts and minds of Governments, Businesses and individuals alike. In fact, there will be a time when the use of eco-friendly fabrics will deliver carbon credits as well as dollar savings in power consumption.


For example Verosol SilverScreen is a semi transparent metal backed screen fabric which dramatically reduces heat and glare at the window independent of colour. Verosol SilverScreen is the best internal blind on the market for heat resistance as it offers 76% solar reflectance which leads to energy savings. As a result, there will be a reduction of heating costs during the winter and, in particular, reduction of air conditioning costs during the summer. SilverScreen is a low emission PVC blind fabric which is well under the benchmark set by the GBCA.


In addition, there are semi transparent and non transparent metal backed fabrics woven from 100% Trevira CS and is inherently fibre flame retardant. These fabrics provide insulation against heat loss in winter and reflect heat in summer.
