One of the great attributes of a motorized screen is that it can be manufactured or configured for a wide variety of uses and needs.
Weather protection is one of the most requested needs by consumers. Whether it is to provide shade, block the sun’s UV rays, protect again wind, rain and winter elements, or to keep your outdoor living area dry and protected, SunPro Motorized Awnings & Screens has the perfect solution for the job.
And when used in conjunction with our sidetrack system, they all provide superior insect protection as well.

GREENGUARD Certification ensures products have met some of the industry’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. Phifer was the first manufacturer in the window-treatment industry to achieve GREENGUARD certification for SheerWeave® interior shading fabrics and has since had a wide range of fabrics GREENGUARD certified including exterior sun control products.
Certification is completely voluntary and ensures that standards are being applied to maintain indoor air quality for the health and safety of building occupants. For more information on Phifer’s GREENGUARD certified products, please contact us.
Look for the Microban® logo in your fabric specifications.
Exterior Sun Control fabrics are flame-retardant and meet certain flame certification standards based on national and local requirements. Check the flame certification standards requirements for a project to verify compliance.
Phifer’s broad range of SheerWeave® fabrics provides excellent reduction in solar heat gain for a more comfortable environment and less work for your air conditioner. Allowing diffused natural light in, SheerWeave may also reduce the need for additional interior lighting for added savings.
The Safe Use designation provides assurance that our products are compliant with some of the most stringent standards for chemical content in the world, including RoHS, REACH, ANSI/WCMA A 100.1 -2007 and US Consumer Product Safety Commission Section 101 for lead content. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, certain levels of exposure to lead, a toxin that can be found in everything from painted toys and furniture to window blinds, can result in a variety of health effects. Even low levels of exposure can be harmful to children. The safe-use stamp marks another confirmation of Phifer’s commitment to remain environmentally responsible.
Melanoma International Foundation
The Melanoma International Foundation (MIF) is an organization established in 2003 to provide sound guidance and support by a Scientific Advisory Board of credentialed medical professionals and melanoma specialists. MIF provides free screenings and educational opportunities to communities nationwide. Phifer sun shading fabrics have been independently tested for their effectiveness in preventing sun damage to the skin and eyes as required by MIF standards. The MIF seal of approval is awarded to manufacturers of fabrics that demonstrate high performance in traditional shading devices such as umbrellas, awnings, sun shades and other complimentary sun protective products, including sunscreen lotion and sun protective clothing.
Printing unique colors, patterns, logos and graphics on Suntex® opens a whole new opportunity for product applications. Suntex fabrics are ideal for digital and screen printing methods. Your local printer can recommend the best print options based on its capabilities.
