Sustainable variety for sunblinds

This family company from Falkenstein in the Vogtland region is getting things moving round our windows. A well-established traditional company, they are putting the spotlight on classic pleats at Heimtextil and offer over 330 different materials. As well as this trend, company philosophy at Erfal is also big on sustainability. They use sustainable woven sunblind fabrics that comply with building certification systems such as DGNB, BREEAM and LEED. Centre stage, in this regard, are fabrics made from recycled PET.

Up to 6 PET bottles are used per square metre of woven fabric. The range of materials for the new Erfal sunblinds catalogue contains a separate card with woven fabrics that are sustainably produced from waste plastic. It covers four different qualities in various colours – 20 fabrics in all. This provides variety in the way that windows are equipped, whilst, at the same time, protecting the environment.

Alongside a high degree of concern for both the environment and the quality of their products, the Erfal team prides itself on its promise of first-rate service: delivery time for custom-made sunblinds is a week at most. There was one tiny exception to this rule last summer, when there was a frantic increase in the demand for insect protection. For a brief period at that time, interior designers had to wait a little longer for the goods to arrive. Erfal operates exclusively in the B2B market and sees its role as that of a reliable partner for the specialist retail trade and for interior designers and architects.


The team from Erfal are exhibiting their entire range on Stand F32 in Hall 8.0.
