Sustainable solar protection

Serge Ferrari Group, a leader in designing, developing and manufacturing innovative composite fabrics, has introduced Soltis Loop Sunmate—an interior solar protection fabric made from 100% recycled materials from post-consumer wastes. Soltis Loop Sunmate provides full privacy from the outdoors, protects against solar heat and is available as roller blinds, vertical blinds and panel tracks. Unique from other interior solar protection materials that only use either recycled yarn or recycled coating, Soltis Loop Sunmate is composed of 100% recycled polyester yarns in its base and 100% recycled polymers in its coating.

“Soltis Loop Sunmate is a revolutionary addition to the Soltis line as our most environmentally conscious product and was born as a direct result of our ongoing commitment to sustainability,” said Jeff Dellinger, business development manager, marine, solar & distribution, Serge Ferrari Group. “Unlike other fabrics in the market that may only use recycled yarn or coating, the product stands out industry-wide as being the only indoor solar protection fabric made completely from recycled materials.”

Soltis Loop Sunmate preserves privacy while providing translucency, filtering the optimum amount of natural light and preventing glare while offering UV protection for indoor spaces. Combining both aesthetics and performance, it provides a luxurious textile look and feel while also blocking up to 91% of heat. The stylish aesthetic helps to create cozy spaces for a variety of environments including residential, commercial, hospitality and more. Soltis Loop Sunmate is GREENGUARD Gold certified, as well as PVC and phthalate free, with a reduced environmental footprint to meet the requirements of LEED, BREEAM, WELL and HQE certifications.

This new generation of innovative products is made of 100% recyclable materials that embody Serge Ferrari Group’s sustainable approach to producing lighter, more durable and high-performance membranes without any additional environmental impact. The Loop range aims to save natural resources, allowing the company to offer more products with less consumption of resources.

The Soltis Loop Sunmate collection is offered in a range of eight colors: Oxygen, Optical White, White, Cream, Oatmeal, Silver, Alloy and Steel Grey. Offered in 90.55-in. rolls, it comes with a five-year limited warranty and is now available to the North American market from Serge Ferrari Group.
