PVC Quality

At Redwood, all our products are made using only high quality PVC sourced in the UK & France. This guarantees every PVC curtain, strip, roll or sheet we supply will possess outstanding see-through qualities and allow light to pass through with minimum distortion. They will also provide unbeatable energy-saving performance, be hardwearing and long lasting.

The difference is clear – all PVC is not the same

The demonstration curtain above is 5-years old and made using two types of PVC.  The strips on the left are made using ‘European-grade’ PVC which contains UV stabilisers. The strips on the right are made using ‘non-European-grade’ PVC which doesn’t.

Why do they look so different? As soon as PVC is hung, if it doesn’t contain UV stabilisers, the Sun’s powerful rays begin to break it down. This leads to ‘fogging’ and an irreversible loss of transparency. As the PVC becomes more ‘distressed’, bacteria and fungal spores can begin to infect it leading to further deterioration – as well as making it look unattractive and unhygienic!

Before comparing our prices with others, please make sure you’re comparing the same product.

Buying ‘cheap’ PVC today can turn out to be an expensive mistake.

  • It’s likely you’ll need to replace it more often.
  • If it’s hanging where the public can see it, the ugly / unhygenic appearance could be damaging to your reputation.
