Only products that meet the strict emission standards of the UL Environment (Underwriter Laboratories) are those that qualify for approval and certification. These standards are based on the criteria established by the main public health organizations, following the premises of health and safety, environment and global sustainability.
2. Protection of the environment
In order to preserve and protect the environment, companies engaged in the manufacture of black out blinds fabric must have certificates that guarantee them as low carbon emitters, and the materials used must be recyclable in some way. In order to guarantee these concepts, the verification bodies of the international Oeko Tex community are responsible for carrying out toxic substances analysis of the textile products to be marketed. Through the Oeko-Tex criteria catalog, there is for the first time a scientifically elaborated standard that analyzes possible problematic substances in textile products, from the elaboration of the raw material of roller blinds to the delivery of the finished roller blinds product in workshops and businesses for sale to the public.
3. Fireproof black out blinds fabric
Roller blinds fabrics must comply with NFPA 701 (National Fire Protection Association) which certifies that black out blinds fabric has been tested for resistance to fire and their spread. In some cases, these blinds fabrics are treated with very hard flammable cellulosic fiber thanks to the incorporation in their components of a halogen-free flame retardant.
