Where - And How - Can You Use SheerWeave Interior Sun Control Fabric?

Whether your priorities are reducing solar heat and glare, maintaining outward views or adding a decorative touch to your window, Phifer SheerWeave fabrics are the perfect option when it comes to managing natural light. These fabrics can be fabricated into a variety of window treatments such as roller shades, Roman shades, or panel track systems for both residential and commercial applications.

The benefits of SheerWeave fabrics do not stop with protection from the sun. Each fabric has unique features to enhance the performance based on your priorities. Whether it is ease of maintenance, meeting environmental standards and commercial specifications or even acoustical challenges, there is a SheerWeave fabric for virtually any project.

Use SheerWeave to Create Interior Window Treatments for Commercial Properties

When it comes to sun control, commercial buildings such as offices, restaurants, hospitals and spaces in the retail and hospitality industries have different needs from a home residence. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows can invite a lot of heat, raising energy costs on your building substantially. Outfitting your office with interior window shades can help lower energy costs as well as help to better manage solar heat and glare — making the space more comfortable and productive while still making great use of natural daylight.

Phifer SheerWeave interior sun control fabrics meet rigorous building and environmental standards. Our SheerWeave fabrics for commercial environments are flame retardant, GREENGUARD® Certified for low VOCs, and are easy to maintain. Learn more about SheerWeave for your industrial property. 


Use SheerWeave to Create Indoor Window Treatments for the Home

Every homeowner’s taste is unique, and it’s the finishing touches like classic roller shades to tasteful Roman shades that can make a house feel like home. SheerWeave’s various product lines respond to the needs of a modern homeowner, ready to help you outfit every room in your home — from the living room to the nursery.

Each of our SheerWeave products has different shading coefficients and openness factors to their weave. We offer everything from room darkening blackout sun control fabrics with 100% opacity that do not allow any light in to 25% open weaves — with multiple openness factor options in between — to satisfy your priorities in managing solar heat and glare while allowing outward views. We also offer popular light-filtering shading material (such as our 7250R, 7450, 7650 and 7750R products) that lets a gentle spray of natural light to permeate through your window.

To help you find the right sun control fabric to meet your needs, it’s best to start by looking at what matters most to you.

​Anti-microbial Properties

In doctor’s offices, assisted living facilities and hospitals, the health of each person who walks into that building is of the utmost importance. In the home, some rooms — such as the bathroom or kitchen areas — are prone to more condensation and dampness than others. To help inhibit the growth of harmful mold, mildew and bacteria, we’ve infused many of our SheerWeave fabrics with Microban® protection, an antimicrobial technology for fabrics used in either a residential or commercial setting.
