Mermet adds Cortina, Siena & Edessa Twilight
May '11
Mermet, a world leader in the manufacture of solar protection fabrics, announced the launch of three new fabrics to its eco-friendly, green fabric offering: Cortina, Siena, and Edessa Twilight. All three fabrics include fire retardant ratings, GreenGuard Children and Schools certification and are RoHS compliant.

Cortina, Siena, and Edessa Twilight are made from 100% PVC-free polyester and available in an assortment of colors and styles for residential and commercial roller shade, panel track, roman shade and skylight applications.

Cortina and Siena are translucent fabrics with innovative designer patterns. Cortina is available in a 5% openness factor, and Siena in a 7% factor. Both feature eight stylish colors in a 118” width, and provide exceptional solar control.

Edessa Twilight, is a blackout fabric boasting eight rich, textured colors with a value entry price. Available in a 118” width and two fire retardant levels for residential and commercial applications.

“These new additions to our Green offering were driven by our customers who were asking for more PVC-free fabric alternatives,” said Chris Duerk, director of sales and marketing at Mermet. “The wider widths are critical as windows are getting larger and homeowners, hotel guests and executives alike seek cleaner views without the impediment of seams. The unique patterns and texture will be an instant hit with our customers, designers, and architects.”

Since 1951, Mermet has been dedicated to producing quality fabrics that meet and exceed our customer's expectations. Mermet entered the solar protection market in 1976, and during the next thirty years developed the most technologically advanced products in the industry. Today, Mermet is recognized as a world leader in the solar protection market. Mermet's extensive product range covers a variety of applications and provides highly effective fabrics that meet the growing market demand for sustainable, healthier, workplaces and homes.
