E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology

We are proud to announce the E screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology fabrics to our collection.

KOOLBLACK™ Technology is a patented technology that enhances dark colored yarn’s heat reflectivity by increasing its near infrared reflection (NIR). While conventional dark screen fabric provides superior view through and exceptional glare control, it absorbs the energy that is created by near infrared wavelength. A dark screen fabric with KOOLBLACK™ Technology enables the fabric to reflect more solar heat, therefore, absorb less energy. As a result, KOOLBLACK™ Technology increases the energy efficiency of dark solar shade fabrics to levels comparable with light colors!

Only dark solar shade fabrics with KOOLBLACK™ Technology provide exceptional glare control, comfortable view through and elegant streetside aesthetics while reducing heat.

KOOLBLACK™ Technology has won many awards including:

comparisonE Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology, won Architectural Products Magazine’s 2012 Product Innovation Awards (PIA) contest in the solar control and shading category. The Architectural Products PIA program is the largest product-oriented awards contest in the architectural market. Over 400 architectural-related products were submitted in July 2012 for the annual PIA competition. A qualified panel of more than 50 Architectural Energy Corporation (AEC) professionals judged the entries on the basis of product innovation, function and sustainability in 15 Construction Specification Institute (CSI) product based categories.

KOOLBLACK™ Technology continues to prove itself as one of the most elite technologies in the window shade industry. In April 2013, KOOLBLACK™ Technology won Best Style Concept in the Green Products and Energy Efficiency category in the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) annual award competition. The WCMA competition strives to showcase the best window covering products and merchandising programs each year. KOOLBLACK™ Technology was evaluated by a panel of industry judges for technical innovation, value-added to end-users and consumers, style concept, and overall design.
