Draper Announces PVC -Free Fabric Offerings

Draper, Inc. will be showing off some new fabric additions, which allow homeowners to save on heating and cooling costs, without using PVC-coated fabrics.

(Spiceland, IN) -In response to increasing calls for more environmentally friendly shade fabrics, Draper is now offering several PVC -free fabrics.

Draper now offers mesh and blackout shades made with Hexcel's PVC -free 1260, 1309, 1277 and Screen Nature fabrics. In addition to the Hexcel offerings, Draper's PVC -free line also includes Roc -Rol, an opaque window shade fabric by Rockland Industries, and Flocke and Obion Fabrics from 3G Mermet.
While many Draper shades already have a positive ecological impact in terms of saving energy, controlling natural light to the best advantage or containing recycled materials, these PVC -free fabrics have been engineered by Hexcel, Rockland and Mermet, and are offered by Draper, with the green architecture movement in mind.
In addition to other environmental benefits, PVC -free fabrics tend to be much thinner and lighter than PVC solar protection mesh fabrics, so Draper shades can be constructed using smaller tubes and hardware systems, leading to less waste, lower operating weights and smaller "bundle diameters."
To learn more about Draper's PVC -free fabric offerings, stop by booth 548 during CEDIA 20004, September 10 -12 in Indianapolis, or visit www.draperinc.com.
