Verre Screen (for roller blinds)

Verre Screen is glass-coated yarn cloth that comes in various colors and supports windows up to four meters in width.

High-quality rolling screen cloth

Verre Screen is rolling blind cloth produced by coating glass fiber with polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It enables customers to create simple yet colorful designs by combining manners of weaving that meet their needs.
Verre Screen brings effects that meet specific spatial needs from the entrance of offices, public facilities, hotels, and stores to the room windows of homes. It also supports large openings by optimizing its outstanding dimensional stability.

Verre Screen

High-quality blind cloth

Nittobo is a pioneer in glass fiber manufacture. In 1938, the company started to manufacture glass fiber on a commercial basis earlier than anyone else in the world, and since then, it has continued to manufacture glass fiber products in various fields by optimizing the useful properties of glass fiber. One of the products is Verre Screen.
All elements of Verre Screen, ranging from its raw material, glass fiber yarn, to its plain cloth, are produced under Nittobo's integrated system, and Nittobo delivers highly stable Verre Screen products by applying rigorous quality control to all processes. Because Verre Screen is produced using uniformly coated glass fiber yarn, its fabric has uniform quality as well as less curls and flare. Warping of weft is also controlled to a minimum.

High-quality blind cloth

Verre Screen offers high quality with less curls, flare, and warping.

High-quality blind cloth

Verre Screen meets the diverse needs of interior spaces through combinations of colors and manners of weaving.

Supporting ultra-wide windows

Because it supports windows up to four meters in width, Verre Screen enables installation of a single, giant screen without joints. In addition, a wider screen may reduce the number of mechanical units needed, leading to cost reduction. If secondary processing based on deposition (welder deposition using ultrasonic or high-frequency waves) is adopted, even larger screens can be installed.
Largest possible width: 4.0 m for the WL5011 type and 3.6 m for the WL5092 type

One wide-type unit of Verre Screen is four meters in width and 40 meters in height.
