Poway, Calif. (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
Hunter Douglas Contract has expanded its collection of high-performance window shading fabrics with the introduction of GreenScreen® Evolve™ roller shade fabric. Made of PVC-free polyester, GreenScreen® Evolve™ fabrics contain up to 78% Repreve® recycled content.
Manufactured in the USA, GreenScreen® Evolve™ features a diamond knit pattern, which provides a clean view-through and enhanced durability for ease of handling and installation. Product designers partnered with a team of architects to develop a modern palette that comprises nine warm and cool neutral colors.
GreenScreen® Evolve™ uses Repreve® fibers, which are made from 100% recycled materials – a combination of post-industrial and post-consumer plastic waste. In comparison to virgin polyester production, Repreve® reduces water consumption by nearly 50%, energy consumption by over 6%, and greenhouse gas emissions by over 34%.
“GreenScreen® Evolve™ offers designers a solar-shading solution that delivers premium aesthetics and very good performance. Its key differentiator is the sustainability of its materials and production,” said Nick Chiaro, General Manager, Hunter Douglas Contract Window Coverings. “The addition of this next-generation fabric enhances our extensive selection of high-quality roller shade fabrics and addresses specific needs identified by our designer and architect customers.”
