Phifer offers a range of high performance materials for kitchen window treatments designed for use in roller shades, blinds and more. Available in a range of colors, textures and patterns to suit any decor, the SheerWeave® collection of window shading fabrics are also equipped with features that work well in a kitchen environment.
On any given day, the kitchen is a room that experiences a wide range of temperatures and conditions. Materials used in kitchen window treatments need to respond to rigorous demands. SheerWeave® fabrics are made with these demands in mind, including:
Antimicrobial / Odor Control
Even when operating an extractor fan, the average kitchen is subjected to high amounts of heat, fluctuating temperatures, steam and moisture. Many SheerWeave® fabrics have been infused with Microban®, an antimicrobial agent that hinders the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew and the odors that accompany them that can occur as a result of such conditions.
Easy to Clean
SheerWeave® fabrics are easy to clean, requiring only soap and water to remove everything from everyday build-up to splattered spaghetti sauce. Little maintenance is required to keep SheerWeave® kitchen window treatments attractive, even in the most heavily-trafficked space.
Reduce Solar Gain
In a room that already experiences higher temperatures, reducing unwanted solar gain can help maintain more comfortable temperatures and manage energy costs. All Phifer SheerWeave® products are engineered to be energy efficient, making them a smart choice to create practical yet attractive custom kitchen window shades.
SheerWeave® fabrics offer options that reduce glare, yet still allow natural light and the ability to enjoy an appealing outward view. Ideal for use in areas where the sun sits lower on the horizon, or in areas that receive a lot of sun, SheerWeave® fabrics can help manage glare while cooking or dining inside a kitchen.
GREENGUARD® Gold Certified
Protecting indoor air quality in the home is important. SheerWeave® fabrics are GREENGUARD® Gold Certified, adhering to the most stringent standards for low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted as a result of off-gassing of materials, making them an outstanding choice for improved indoor air quality.
Versatile and highly functional, the SheerWeave® family of fabrics can be used in a number of kitchen window applications. From panel tracks to vertical blinds, Roman shades to folding, pleated, or roll-up shades, SheerWeave® fabrics offer a polished, sophisticated look for your kitchen.
