Energy-efficient Blinds Solutions For Autumn

Greetings from the team at Blind Designs Commercial,

As we head deeper into April, we are thrilled to immerse ourselves in the spirit of Earth Month - a time when we reaffirm our commitment to sustainability and environmental trust. At Blind Designs, we are proud to champion green initiatives that not only benefit our planet but also enhance the comfort and efficiency of commercial spaces across South Africa.

Protecting this region holds significant importance to our company, as we seamlessly combine exquisite designs with sustainable practices. We achieve this by ensuring that 80% of all material waste generated during the production of our blinds is recycled.

Examples of products we supply that reflect our green initiatives include SheerWeave® blinds which are the only sun control fabrics that use DOW’s unique ECOLIBRIUM Bio-Based Plasticizer. ECOLIBRIUM is an eco-friendly solution that lowers greenhouse gas emissions, read more here. Our Mode Outdoor Fabrics also use bio-based plasticisers instead of fossil-fuel-based plasticisers.
Long-Term Cost Benefits:

Investing in sustainable solutions isn't just about reducing environmental impact—it's also about securing long-term cost benefits for your business. By choosing energy-efficient blinds and shading solutions, you not only lower utility bills but also increase the value of your property. Our energy-efficient product ranges are engineered to withstand the test of time, offering durability and performance that translate into significant savings over their lifespan.

Planning for Solar Shading Solutions:

Effective solar shading is essential for optimising natural light while minimising glare and heat gain in commercial spaces. Our team of experts specialises in designing custom solar shading solutions tailored to your specific needs and requirements. By correctly planning solar shading solutions for your commercial space, you can create a comfortable and productive environment for employees and patrons alike, all while reducing energy consumption and enhancing sustainability.

Embracing Recycled Materials

In our commitment to sustainability, many of our blinds are crafted from recycled materials, transforming waste into functional and stylish solutions for your commercial space. By choosing blinds made from recycled materials, you not only reduce your environmental footprint but also contribute to the circular economy, where resources are reused and repurposed, promoting a more sustainable future for generations to come.
