April 1st, 2015 / By: / News

Phifer Inc.’s SheerWeave Style 4901, a two-sided twill weave fabric, is part of the company’s range of interior sun control fabrics that address acoustical needs within the commercial and office environment. Style 4901 joins SheerWeave Basic 3%, Style 2500 and Performance+ Style 2500.

Phifer’s acoustical fabrics show performance ratings of .50-.60 as measured by the Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC), for their ability to absorb sound. The performance of SheerWeave fabrics peaks depending on the type of sound they are exposed to.

SheerWeave Basic 3%, Style 2500, Performance + Style 2500 and Style 4901 fabrics display increased absorption among human speech frequencies, making them effective at controlling sound in environments, such as office settings, in which privacy and noise reduction are key.

As an alternative to ordinary window coverings, Phifer’s SheerWeave fabrics manage sun heat and glare. SheerWeave’s light-filtering qualities diffuse light, reduce glare, control solar heat gain and reduce the fading of interior furnishings.

SheerWeave BASIC 3%, Style 2500, Performance + Style 2500 and Style 4901 are certified to GREENGUARD standards for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage. These fabrics also meet the more stringent GREENGUARD Gold Certification standards, strict criteria that consider the safety of sensitive individuals and ensure products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.

These fabrics are infused with Microban® antimicrobial product protection for an additional layer of cleanliness protection. Added during the manufacturing process, Microban works continuously for the lifetime of the shade to inhibit the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
