Screen Innovations has launched an online shade selection and specification tool. Guiding integrators, designers, homeowners and end users through the fabric selection process, SI’s new Fabric Wizard provides one place to learn about and determine the best shading fabric for any indoor and outdoor application.
More than 850 indoor and outdoor fabrics and insect screens from leading designer shade suppliers, such as Phifer, Mermet, Serge Ferrari, Wilson and more, have been thoughtfully categorized according to the installation location, function, color and other parameters. SI’s Fabric Wizard starts by asking website visitors to identify the purpose of the shade, be it for UV protection, privacy, heat reduction, glare control or insect prevention. Based on those answers and color preferences, Fabric Wizard cultivates a manageable list of the most appropriate fabric choices. Integrators can present these options to their customers, confident that whichever material is selected will look and perform optimally for the intended application.
The Fabric Wizard complements SI’s Flow online shade configuration and ordering software. After using Fabric Wizard, integrators can plug the fabric choice into the Flow configuration tool, adding dimensions, motorization type and other specs to build a shading solution and view estimated pricing.
