Metal-enhanced solar textile
Kova Textiles developed the Plains Collection to improve upon existing solar shade matrices. Made from vinyl coated polyester and aluminum slit film, the Plains Collection makes use of metallic elements to improve the aesthetic qualities of this light-filtering material. The Plains Collection may be used in commercial as well as residential settings, and the fabrics may also be encapsulated in PETG resin to make a rigid surface.
