GOING GREEN

Motorized Shade strongly supports manufacturers focused on the conservation of our environment through a series of green initiatives that include recycling of scrap aluminum, steel, PVC, and corrugated packaging materials. Additionally, we offer a wide selection of 100% PVC free fabrics, 100% recyclable fabrics, and GreenGuard Children & Schools certified materials that demonstrate low emitting VOC’s, ensuring indoor air quality. The following details are provided by our most green-conscious manufacturers.



PVC-Free Roller Shade Fabrics

Motorized Shade offers an extensive line of PVC-Free solar shading fabrics. Eco-friendly SheerWeave Infinity is PVC-free and 100% recyclable. SheerWeave Infinity starts with the only core yarn, synthetic or natural, that is born out of post-industrial waste by-product. Emulating the look and engineering of standard SheerWeave fabrics, Infinity’s yarn coating is developed from the same compound family as its core yarn. Like other SheerWeave fabrics, Infinity provides the same solar heat and glare control properties that have elevated window treatments from mere decoration, to high performance tools for conserving energy, harnessing natural light, and maintaining interior comfort levels.

Motorized Shade also offers a 100% polyester fabric called Vela from Mermet. This sophisticated fabric is based on solid, unsheathed polyester yarns, and can be 100% recycled into additional fabrics, or can be reclaimed and used in the production of other purposes such as mattresses, car insulation, roofing felts and furniture padding.


Microban Roller Shade Fabrics


Many of the SheerWeave fabrics used in Motorized Shade’s Sun Control Roller Shades feature Microban certification. Microban antimicrobial protection works continuously for the lifetime of the shade to inhibit the growth of stain-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew. SheerWeave fabrics infused with Microban antimicrobial technology are ideal for any commercial or residential environment where microbes are a concern:

The remaining 20% is manufactured from prime aluminum ingot.
