Just a few years ago, “green” products and sustainable design were buzz words in the design industry. Now, these “trends” have proved their staying power. Sustainable design is of the utmost importance in interior design and architecture, and window coverings are no exception. Hunter Douglas has gone above and beyond industry standards to deliver products to consumers that are sustainable in a variety of ways. Read below or stop in our showroom to learn more!
- All Hunter Douglas® products are Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified®. This certification is determined by a third party and verifies that the products and processes to make the products release low chemical and particle emissions indoors. Furthermore, the certification backs sustainability claims by manufacturers. The claims are regulated by established standards and certification procedures, including testing methods, allowable emissions levels and toxicity limits.
- Certain Hunter Douglas® products meet criteria for the federal tax credit for energy efficiency. Hunter products will eliminate energy loss through windows, where up to 50% of energy can be lost.
- Certain Hunter Douglas® products are comprised of reeds, grasses and bamboo. These natural materials are sustainable in that they are fast growing and regenerate quickly.
- Also, Hunter products are made in the United States, reducing the large “carbon footprint” that is associated with products that are shipped from overseas.
