IPC Curtains

Curtains are known sources of contamination

Privacy curtains play a vital role in protecting patient dignity, yet they are one of the most frequently touched surfaces in the patient area and are a well-known source of contamination.

There is a growing effort by hospitals in the UK and around the world to combat HCAIs by eliminating fabric and implementing innovative alternatives to better protect their patients and staff.

Creating a safer patient environment

Hygenica’s IPC Cubicle, Shower and Window Curtains are manufactured with Fantex® antimicrobial fabric which is scientifically proven to rapidly kill a wide array of harmful pathogens, such as MRSA, CRE, Coronavirus and many others to Log 3 (99.9%) efficacy in under 1 minute.

With its unique formulation and best-in-class speed of kill, Fantex® acts quickly and effectively to break the chain of transmission by reducing the cross-contamination risk.

IPC Curtains

The Four Key Requirements of Effective Antimicrobial Fabrics

For a antimicrobial fabric to be effective at reducing contamination, and consequently, the transmission of HCAIs within a hospital, it must offer rapid, long-lasting and potent efficacy against a wide range of harmful pathogens.

Fantex® is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that shows rapid and potent efficacy against bacteria, viruses and fungi and has undergone rigorous independent testing to international standards to demonstrate its speed, breadth and longevity of action.
