Comfortex Window Fashions SYMPHONY® HIGHLIGHTS WITH STAINAWAY Product Category: Cellular Shades

Consumers increasingly require household furnishings be protected from stains and other household accidents in order to maintain their value and beauty. In a “messy” world with kids, pets and everyday accidents, shades built with Symphony Highlights Cellular Fabrics with StainAway repel stains and protect the beauty of the fabric. Symphony Highlights with StainAway is a fabric developed exclusively for Comfortex BlindCrafter Centers. This energy efficient double honeycomb fabric features a shimmering highlight with an extra level of stain protection on the interior side of the shade. Symphony Highlights with StainAway allows BlindCrafters to offer their customers an enhanced level of protection from every day dirt and stains such as wine, ketchup and coffee. Additional advantages of Symphony Highlights with StainAway include water and liquid resistance, which allows stains to release more easily, dust repellence, air pollution resistance, heat and humidity resistance and a longer product life.
