Lutron Expands Residential Fabric Line

New fabric offerings for shading solutions are stylish and sustainable

Coopersburg, PA (September 4, 2008) - Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. is extending the line of residential fabrics for its Sivoia shading solutions with the introduction of 41 new fabrics. This collection offers a wide variety of designs, colors, and textures to personalize any living space -as well as a high tech way to control natural light in style.

Within the new fabric collection, choices range from burnout, textured, dim -out, and blackout fabrics. Burnout fabrics have removed pigment from the fabric in order to create a pattern while dispersing light in a unique way. Textured fabrics add depth to a space. Dim -out fabrics reduce the view to shapes and shadow while blackout fabrics completely eliminate light from entering a space.

The new fabric additions all contain unique sustainable qualities in order to fit the needs of a space. Certain fabrics are free of harmful chemicals, including PVC, halogen, formaldehyde, mercury, halogen, or a combination. These chemicals can off gas the pollutants into the air, which can cause illness and damage to the environment. Other fabrics are made from 100% recycled product. GREENGUARD and Oeko -Tex are independent organizations that test fabrics for dangerous levels of toxins. If a fabric contains minimal or non -existent levels of contaminants, it is deemed safe for the indoor environment and receives certification.

"Aesthetic appeal is becoming increasingly important for homeowners," says Steve Pancheri, Marketing Manager for Lutron. "Not only do homeowners want the convenience of Sivoia shading solutions, but they want their shades to match the décor of the room where they've been installed. Being able to combine the functionality of Sivoia shading solutions with stylish fabrics provides customers with more versatility when it comes to decorating options."

The new fabrics enable a homeowner to find a daylight control solution that is simple, elegant, and convenient.
