SheerWeave fabrics receive lead-free stamp

January 13th, 2012 / By: / Industry News

Phifer Incorporated’s entire line of SheerWeave fabrics is lead free, meeting and exceeding several window covering industry testing standards for hazardous materials.

SheerWeave 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 confirmation of Phifer&srquo;s commitment to remain environmentally responsible. All SheerWeave fabrics have been GREENGUARD® certified for indoor air quality performance as well as certified as meeting the more stringent GREENGUARD Children & Schools standards for commercial use.

The SheerWeave interior sun control line offers a comprehensive benefits package, guarding interior furnishings against fading, reducing solar heat and glare and providing excellent outward visibility. Durable and easy to maintain, these fabrics are available in a variety of colors, widths and openness factors and can be fabricated into an array of different window treatments.
