We understand that the health of a building is one of your top priorities right from its conception. We’re all aware of the Sick Building Syndrome and its symptoms: irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, skin irritation and unpleasant odour sensations. Just as a reminder; on average, a human draws more than 17,000 breaths per day, and Canadians spend close to 90% of their time indoors. Let’s consider this. Windows now make up to 80% of the interior wall surface; typically, a substantial portion of toxic chemicals in a building is a mix of substances affiliated with shading fabrics… and yet, there are healthy, organic and recyclable alternatives available right here, in Canada!
Our company has executed thousands of installations in Toronto, GTA and across Canada. Eco-certified textiles, such as the ecoTEXTM series represents a broad range of solution-based roller shade fabrics offering the industry’s highest rate of sun protection performance and human health; the optimal choice for commercial and residential shading projects. If a textile article carries the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100, you can be certain that every aspect of this fabric has been tested for substances harmful to human health by independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes. The test takes into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day. Our experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for you.
EN3 is a full-service operation. We oversee the complete project cycle to ensure complete, integrated service is achieved to client’s satisfaction. Typically, the initial stage of the project cycle starts with a dialog with the client, ensuring that all specifications are addressed, the most demanding challenges identified and the overall vision fully understood.
Next, the consulting phase sets in. Additional technology and fabric recommendations are made, specific issues addressed, and final calculations made. In addition to expert design consultation, EN3 is ready to deliver custom AutoCad drawings and/or provide energy data modeling. During the entire installation process, EN3 actively maintains a continuous dialog with the client and its suppliers. Our full engagement from the very beginning of each project, our attention to detail, efficiency and quality control has an immense impact on the quality of the final install.
