Energy Efficient / Heat Control

All SheerWeave window treatment fabrics are energy efficient, resulting in savings on energy costs. SheerWeave fabrics are engineered to reduce solar heat gain, absorb and dissipate heat to maintain comfortable temperatures in the home, and protect interior surfaces from harmful UV rays.

Suitable for Use in Dual Roller Systems

SheerWeave fabrics coordinate well with each other in dual roller systems, giving homeowners greater control over lighting and privacy. For the most effective use of SheerWeave fabrics in a dual roller system, we recommend selecting a room darkening fabric when total privacy and light blockage is required and a more transparent SheerWeave product to manage solar heat and light while maintaining outward views.

A Variety of Colors & Textures

SheerWeave fabrics are available in an assortment of colors and textures designed to coordinate with virtually any style of home decor -- from traditional solar shading fabrics in various openness factors and neutral tones to textured jacquard patterns -- for an element of design and color.

GREENGUARD® Gold Certified

SheerWeave fabrics are GREEENGUARD Gold Certified, adhering to the highest possible standards for low-emitting products and improving indoor air quality.

Improved Daytime Privacy

Our Infinity2 1% and 4800 Series are just a few of several SheerWeave fabrics designed to offer improved privacy during daylight hours. These densely-woven fabrics allow natural light to enter the room and block up to 99% of UV rays.


Many of our SheerWeave fabrics are infused with Microban® antimicrobial protection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. It also helps control odors associated with mold and mildew. Microban-infused fabrics are an excellent choice for homes in damp or humid areas or for families with small children who are often exposed to germs at school and with playmates.


The Best Window Treatments for Your Commercial or Office Space

In addition to creating an environment that is both functional and inspiring, commercial buildings may have strict building codes and requirements for materials used on the interior to ensure it is a safe space for staff and visitors alike. 

From schools to hotels to hospitals, Phifer manufactures SheerWeave® fabrics for commercial window shades that meet the highest standards for safety in commercial environments while promoting the use of natural daylighting and improving the function of office spaces.

Most SheerWeave products are compliant with commercial building material standards while providing all of the benefits of solar shading. SheerWeave® fabrics offer a wide variety of options to create custom commercial window treatments that fit any size window for any working or service environment, including:

  • Office Window Treatments – SheerWeave products are engineered to maintain comfortable temperatures, reducing solar heat gain and “hot spots” in workspaces and conference rooms. Glare reduction properties help eliminate eye strain at the computer, and total light blocking fabrics are ideal for enhancing the use of a space for presentations. These fabrics also provide an added sense of confidentiality when privacy is a priority.  
  • School – SheerWeave’s sun control properties make it an ideal fabric to create commercial solar shades in schools, creating a more comfortable learning environment by managing solar heat gain. Select SheerWeave fabrics are infused with Microban® antimicrobial protection to help control bacteria, mold, and mildew.
  • Hospital – SheerWeave fabrics help maintain a comfortable room temperature as solar heat and glare are managed while patients recover. Additionally, choosing a style of SheerWeave infused with Microban can help maintain a more sterile environment. 
  • Hotel / Hospitality Industry – SheerWeave fabrics create a sense of luxury and uniformity throughout a hotel as they allow outward views while managing harsh solar heat and glare or total light blockage when needed. These fabrics are durable and easy to maintain. SheerWeave’s sun control properties can also help reduce building-wide energy costs. 
  • Restaurant – SheerWeave fabrics infused with Microban® offer added protection from bacteria, mold and mildew in restaurant environments. For restaurants with outdoor seating, Phifer Exterior Sun Control Products can provide shade as well as added protection from insects while dining. For indoor-only establishments, all SheerWeave fabrics are easy-to-clean in the event of spills as well as offer a host of other benefits. 

Benefits of SheerWeave Fabrics for Commercial Window Shades

Each style of SheerWeave fabric offers its own specific benefits to commercial environments, meeting or exceeding the rigorous specifications demanded by service industries.

  • Maintain Comfortable Temperatures – In addition to saving on energy costs, SheerWeave fabrics are engineered to help maintain more comfortable temperatures by managing solar heat gain.

SheerWeave anti-microbial fabrics blend form and function, helping keep your shades cleaner for longer in commercial environments where public health is of the utmost concern.
