Toronto, Ontario – Consistently on the front line of product development and innovation, Sun Glow has introduced its new Eco Fabric, which seamlessly blends the functionality of a conventional PVC screen with unsurpassed decorative appeal. Suitable for both the residential and commercial markets, Eco Fabrics are made of Trevira CS polyester fibers, which are anti-microbial, 100% PVC free, Okeo-Tex Standard 100 certified and is inherently fire resistant.

Research into the cause of fire shows that unsuitable textiles in the home or the workplace can contribute considerably towards a fire spreading. What differentiates Trevira CS from other flame-resistant textiles is that it is not treated with a surface flame-resistant chemical, but rather the flame-resistant properties are permanently bonded to the molecular chain of the fabric and cannot wear or wash off. Furthermore there is no danger of toxic fumes being released in the event of a fire, which is a serious issue for other fabrics.

Eco Fabrics are made from environmentally friendly materials that significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Being a sun screen, the Eco Fabrics also manage the sun’s heat, glare, and UV rays, all the while increasing energy efficiency, improving visual comfort and protecting your interior textiles. The Eco Series is currently available in 3 formats. The Eco Privacy is a 1% open privacy screen, which is acoustically engineered to reduce sound reverberation and provide noise control. The Eco Linen is 3% opacity while the Eco View is a 5% opacity, which delivers a clear outward view while still managing glare and UV transmittance. It is this broad spectrum of applications that will surely make the Eco Fabric line the new industry standard. The Eco Fabrics come in a variety of colours and can also be used for custom print and design specifications.
