Benefits of Using Elers Medical Antimicrobial Curtains

  • Treated with a silver ion based chemical which is a proven effective antimicrobial agent. This directly helps to reduce pathogenic transfer from the surface of the curtain to the patient or staff member.

 

  • Independently tested according to the Internationally accepted Antimicrobial Textile standards – AATCC 100 and AATCC 147. Curtains are proven effective against multiple organisms such as MRSA, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Aspergillus niger, Trycophyton mentagrophytes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Corneybacterium ammoniagenes.

 

  • Antimicrobial chemical is added at the polypropylene (PP) mixing stage. Therefore the fibres of the PP are inherently Antibacterial, not just the surface of the curtain.

 

  • 100 or 120 gram per square meter (GSM) fabric ensures quality and patient privacy

 

  • Heat sealed self-auditing and dignity labels including unique identification number for traceability

 

  • 6 stocked colour options with further pantones available, thus allowing easy coordination with existing hospital interior schemes

 

  • Range of different hanging systems available, compatible with most commonly used track systems
