Though sometimes overlooked on these terms, window coverings are an important consideration for specifiers motivated by sustainability. With their capacity to control not just light and glare but also heat, the best blind and curtain fabrics have a key role to play in improving thermal efficiency.
Incorporated thoughtfully, into projects of all types, high quality shading systems help reduce the need for artificial cooling. In this way, they improve operational performance and reduce carbon footprints.
Importantly, the best blinds are also produced with embodied carbon in mind. Aware of their product stewardship responsibilities, their manufacturers endeavour to minimise the emissions associated with production processes, transportation, and so forth. And they aim to limit the damage caused by their by-products.
In this session, we highlight the types of products that meet these standards and are therefore genuinely sustainable. Our speakers outline how to identify them and how to best incorporate them in your work.
By the end of this session, you should be able to:
• Define the term ‘Sustainable Architecture’ and explain how it relates to blinds and curtains.
• Identify the types of environmental damage that window covering products, which are not produced with this concept in mind, can cause.
• Identify the best environmental certifications and explain why they can be considered accurate.
• Outline the ways for specifiers to select genuinely sustainable window covering products.
