PVC-Free Fabric Roller Shades
Noble Translucent Roller Shades are a perfect element for any home, no matter the season or time of year. Each fabric roller shade comes in designer materials that create a decorative look perfect for any home decor. Rich color choices were chosen to accentuate simple clean lines and add warmth to homes. From hues of brown to ivory and white, the Noble Translucent Roller Shades compliment homes, offices, apartments and even child care facilities.
For consumers looking to tread lightly on the earth, these eco-friendly roll-up blinds are made from PVC-free polyester fabric with a unique ribbed pattern. PVC is harmful to humans and has long-term environmental effects.
“Because so many different additives are used to make PVC, recycling the plastic (or material) is extremely difficult. When incinerated, PVC forms dioxins, a highly toxic group of chemicals that build up in the food chain (and in humans). When landfilled, PVC poses significant long-term environmental threats as chemical additives can leach into groundwater,” reports eco-cycle.org
These fabric roller shades are designed with a unique patented secure grip spine, attaching the fabric to the roller preventing it from falling off the tube as well as keeping the fabric aligned. Fabric window shades help filter light and block harmful UV rays. They are easy to operate and install. Be sure when ordering to decide if the shades will hang inside our outside the window frame. Most companies will custom cut your fabric roller shades to order, so it’s a perfect fit for any window.
Eco-friendly options in window treatments are becoming more and more popular with consumers and window treatment companies. The more demand there is, the more selection will become available. Companies are interested in protecting the environment and educating consumers as to how they can do the same.
Other examples of eco friendly window treatments are the Eco-Green line of roller shades and solar screen shades. Honeycomb cell shades have also been noted for their energy efficient qualities that save on heating and cooling bills, which reduces the amount of pollution that enters the atmosphere.
One of the most important factors in purchasing window treatments is to buy quality blinds or shades. Cheaply made materials will end up in the landfill within a year or two, often with fabrics and chemicals that are hard to break down and may contaminate ground water. Having a well-made blind will be an investment that lasts for years to come. This is a philosophy adopted by companies like Patagonia clothing gear and other top producers of clothing or window treatment materials.
Noble Translucent Roller Shades are ideal for every living environment. They are gentle on the earth, look good, protect the inside of homes against fading associated with UV damage and will last for year. Purchase fabric roller shades before the real heat of summer hits.
