“Metro Shade” - Roller and Roman Blinds
Blinds on the Net is now proud to announce the release of Metro Shade.
Metro Shade is a fabric that has been specially designed to have the softer appearance of a fabric, but all the block out qualities of a traditional material.
For many years roller blind fabrics have been confined to acrylic coated fabrics that have a plastic look and feel, leaving rooms looking a little tired and cold.
Metro Shade has been specially woven and coated at 2800mm wide. This will enable blinds to be manufactured to suit most windows without any unsightly joins or the need for turning the fabrics.
Blinds in the Net has specially designed this acrylic foam coating for the back of the Metro Shade Fabric. This coating offers a "bounce back" quality that make the fabric much more difficult to mark, unlike other flocked products.
The importance of a quality fabric can never be underestimated ; Metro Shade has been developed to minimize fading. Testing has been undertaken and the results show that Metro Shade has a rating of greater than 6 on the Blue wool scale.
Many fabrics claim to be block out only for the end user to find that the fabric is only room darkening which may lead to the fabric having a glowing effect in direct sun. Metro Shade is designed to exceed the Australian Standards for block out ensuring that customers can rely on Metro Shade block out quality.
The most commonly asked question in relation to window covering textiles is "how do I clean it?" Metro Shade simply wipes clean with a soapy cloth and is also treated to be mold and mildew resistant.
