REVOLUTION® is the first sunscreen fabric for roller blinds in the world to be Cradle to Cradle Certified(TM) Gold.

Unlike the standard polyesters used to make conventional blind fabrics REVOLUTION® is a fabric made from PLA (polylactic acid), an ingenious bio-polymer that is 100% extracted from annually renewable plant raw materials (currently corn) rather than from oil.

REVOLUTION® meets the same performance standards as the conventional sunscreen fabrics. It is very dimensionally stable and durable, light fast comparable to PE5 , matches all polyester performance standards but at the same time less fossil fuels are used in the production of the raw materials and less greenhouse gases are produced in comparison with the traditional polymers used for synthetic fibres, and contributes to a smaller carbon footprint.

Be Revolutionary, Be Green and specify this fabric on your next Commercial Project.

The Cradle to Cradle Certified ™ Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories – material health, material reutilisation, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.

Offering light diffusion, reflection, and exceptional energy savings, Svensson climate screens are designed to maximise greenhouse productivity levels.

The white polyester screens are flame retardant and transmit both direct and diffuse light, maintaining steady temperatures and sunlight levels.

Consistent temperatures not only reduce energy requirements but also minimise dew formation on crops, thus reducing the risk of fungal disease.
