Roller Blind Fabric From Recycled Ocean Plastic

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

To further enhance their 'green' credentials, Sun-X is now making roller blinds out of fabrics made from 100% recycled ocean plastics. The 'Sweetwater' fabric is also recyclable at the end of its useful life.

 

 

 

 

 

Most modern fabrics are made from polyester (others mainly from PVC, fibreglass, and cotton). Not only will this help our marine life, but reduce the embedded carbon from other manufacturing processes.


 

The fabric has a natural feel, and with a 5% open weave, allows a good view out through the blind to the outside, making it ideal for commercial or residential settings. It is Flame-Retardant, and 2.6m wide.
