PVC-Free Interior Shade Screening from Nysan
Unveiled at Greenbuild, Nysan's shades are the first PVC-free shades that can compete with PVC on performance, fire resistance, and price.
The Calgary, Alberta company Nysan introduced a PVC-free interior shade-screen product line at the Pittsburgh Greenbuild conference.
Until this product introduction, there were about eight manufacturers of shade-screen systems for commercial buildings, including Nysan, all of which used PVC-coated screening—usually either woven polyester or woven fiberglass. (Most such products are 60–75% PVC by weight.) Given demand from the green building community for a PVC-free shade screen product line, a number of manufacturers, including industry-leading Mecho Shade, have been working on PVC alternatives. But Nysan is the first EBN is aware of that has a PVC-free line that can compete with PVC in performance, fire resistance, and price.
