Why we are Green

Roll-A-Shade® is committed to protecting our environment. We now offer a continually expanding line of environmentally friendly, chemical-free fabric materials from Mermet®, Serge Ferrari® and Phifer® — see details and specifications at the bottom of this page. These special fabrics are made from 100% recyclable materials and are PVC-free.

Our special shade fabric has characteristics that go beyond solar shading alone. Because it blocks solar heat gain and reduces harmful UV’s inside, it is naturally “green”. It is also tear-resistant, rot proof and anti-bacterial. Many of our hand-crafted Roll-A-Shade® solar shade fabrics are Greenguard® Certified giving it a low chemical and particulate emissions for indoor use.

We offer antimicrobial protection that works continuously for the lifetime of the shade to inhibit the growth of stain-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. This makes many of our fabrics ideal for any commercial environment where microbes are a concern including: Restaurants, Retail, Hospitality, Healthcare, Home and Offices, Schools and Institutions. Independent laboratories have tested our shade fabric materials to assure that they are less toxic than burning wood, wool or cotton and have no measurable VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).
