Windows bring natural light into a home, and they’re a great lookout to the world outside. But people also want to control the amount the sunlight that comes in and create a cool and relaxing atmosphere. Hence the need for blinds, curtains and awnings that not only offer privacy and protection, but also a sense of style.
In the window decoration market, functionality and style go hand in hand. Customers require sustainable products with high quality fabrics that match their personal taste. On top of that, sun protection, stain resistance and self-cleaning features have become the worldwide standard.
What’s in it for me?
As many window decoration textiles are exposed to rain, UV light and storms, they should withstand heavy use. It’s therefore up to you to create a fabric type that is both resilient and refined. You can use special protective coatings to add self-cleaning features, and stain and odour repellent finishes to avoid blemishes and bed smells altogether. Additionally, you should closely monitor trends in interior, garden and outdoor so you can adapt your fabric designs accordingly. This calls for a flexible printing production process. Another important feature revolves around light transparency and warmth. To optimally anticipate customer demands, you should produce textiles that vary from obscuring to translucent. And with the growing awareness for the negative effects of UV light, sun protective coatings are a must-have as well.
We’re always looking for ways to improve the functionality and sustainability of everyday use textiles. Our water based PU coatings, for example, contain no volatile organic compounds, which makes them less polluting while protecting window decoration from everyday domestic pollution. Our inkjet printing concept gets you to deep colour shades that are yellowing resistant, while our permethrin fabric impregnation helps you repel mosquitoes and keeps the bugs at bay.
Concepts that fit
We offer you a window to the future of decoration and covering. With innovative features that bring convenience and comfort to every home, you have a clear view on success. Take a look at our solutions:
