Keen on green

Keen on Green is an initiative designed to promote the energy saving benefits of Luxaflex products, as well as its dedication to creating environmentally sound products in a sustainable manner.

 

GreenScreen Eco, GreenScreen Revive and GreenScreen Earthcare are ranges from Luxaflex that have been produced with the environment in mind.

Luxaflex has taken great care in selecting eco friendly raw materials and methods of production, and is committed to contributing to a sustainable and healthy environment.

GreenScreen Eco 1%, 5% & 8%

This series of screen fabrics consists of PVC-free material that can be re-used within the industrial cycle, and has been awarded a Cradle to Cradle certificate. These fabrics can be recycled after the useful life of the blind has ended.

GreenScreen Revive 3%

This remarkable fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles. Two bottles can provide enough yarn for 1m² of fabric.

GreenScreen Earthcare

This decorative textile fabric is made from lactic acid (sugar cane and cornstarch), a renewable raw material that is 100% biodegradable. Compared to polyester, the production of this fabric results in 75% less CO2 emissions and 56% less fossil fuel consumption.

Other eco friendly ranges include its range of aluminium blinds, where Luxaflex has been using recycled aluminium blinds since 1948. Currently its aluminium blinds are created with 98% recycled aluminium and can be 100% recycled without loss of quality. Luxaflex wood blinds are made from natural timber and consist almost entirely of FSC certified wood. Bamboo is the most durable, aesthetic and environmentally friendly alternative to hardwood, and is the fastest growing plant growing up to one metre a day. Luxaflex blinds made from bamboo are very light yet sturdy and strong and offer a beautiful and characteristic grain.

Energy efficiency

On average without energy efficient window treatments between 20% and 30% of the homes heating and cooling energy is lost through its windows. Energy efficient shades enhance insulation and protect against cold and drafts during winter, while in summer the shades help reduce the amount of solar heat passing through the window keeping a room cool and comfortable. To some degree, all Luxaflex window coverings contribute to energy efficiency However, the duette shades collection is the most effective. Without window coverings, 72% of solar heat passes through double glazing but duette shades reduce this amount by up to 78%. Heat loss at the window can be reduced up to 60% for single glazing, 46% for double glazing and 25% for HR++ Glazing.
