Hunter Douglas, the leading window fashions innovator, is a big champion of the environment, and they have found a way to marry innovation with conservation. At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we’re pleased to offer the full line of Hunter Douglas products, including the new, sustainable materials offered exclusively on the Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades. If you’re interested in seeing this material up close, be sure to speak with one of our consultants today!
Cleaning the Ocean
Our oceans have become a vast dumping ground for plastics, and due to winds and ocean currents, they collect to become giant floating death traps for sea animals. To help ensure the sustainability of our oceans and the animals they house for generations to come, Hunter Douglas identified a partner that could simultaneously create a new breed of fabric while cleaning up the oceans’ mess. Bionic® is a mission-driven materials-engineering company that has developed programs for coastal recycling in developing countries. Hunter Douglas asked Bionic to create a yarn from those wastes—that yarn is the key building block for the new GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ available exclusively on Designer Screen Shades.
Screen Shade Openness
If you own or are thinking about purchasing screen shades, you probably know they help block harmful UV rays and provide privacy, view-through, and glare control while filtering natural sunlight. To determine the amount of light and shade your screen shade will provide, check for its openness level., which is expressed in percentages. A 1% openness level, for example, provides a more obscured view, while a 5% openness level allows more light and a clearer view. The lower the percentage value, the tighter the weave. The new recycled fabrics come in five neutral tones in 3% openness.
One of the most overlooked options when selecting window treatments is the operating systems. If your windows are high and hard to reach, consider PowerView® Motorization. If you have children or just don’t like the look of cords, consider LiteRise®. We have a wide variety of operating choices for you to select from.
