Sustainability

At Oceanair, we understand that sustainability can enhance property value and that sustainable building is in high demand. It can be difficult to find manufacturers who adhere to sustainable design and production. Oceanair are proud to be a sustainable manufacturer, and here is how we do it:

Sustainable design

Built to stand the test of time, we pride ourselves on the delivery of high quality blinds, curtains and soft furnishings. Availability of spare components ensures longevity of use, whilst making an important contribution to the environment through reducing waste.

The thermal properties offered by our products can significantly contribute towards the reduction of heating costs during winter, and reduction of air conditioning costs in summer.  Through fabric selection, our products can also provide acoustic protection and visual comfort, whilst our sheer fabrics help to further reduce lighting and energy costs, through harnessing natural light and providing privacy.

No matter how complex the window shape or incline, our design team specialises in developing innovative product solutions, ensuring that the benefits derived from sustainable products can be realised throughout an interior. These products can be easily integrated into any home or building management system, saving energy efficiently through 21st century temperature and light control.

Our fabric collection encompasses a wide range of sustainable fabrics, including bamboo slats, roller and soft furnishing fabrics. 

Sustainable manufacture

Many of our products have been designed so that they can be easily and quickly slid and/or clipped together, this not only removes the requirement for powered tools during manufacture, but also the number of screw fixings required.

Achieving manufacturing efficiency is a key design consideration, ensuring that waste is minimised, whilst still delivering quick lead-times. We have also successfully reduced the need for solvents in the production and cleaning of our products by switching to water based cleaning products.

Waste is further reduced through investment in the very latest manufacturing technologies and processes, including state of the art cutting tables, tools and machinery. Unavoidable leftovers are often used for fabric samples or as filling materials for transportation purposes. All waste materials are separated and the majority returned for recycling.

Sustainable procurement

The first priority for Oceanair when determining our suppliers is quality, quality not only in regards of functionality but also of efficiency and sustainability. For example, our aluminium extrusion supplier, supplying components used in most of our products, has an in-house recycling plant, producing billets that are from 95% recycled material.

Wherever possible we work with ISO certified companies (ISO 9001/14001), and source locally, ensuring that emissions caused by transport are reduced.

More than 75% of all product packaging is recycled
