SheerWeave fabrics receive lead-free stamp

Industry News | January 13, 2012 | By:

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.
