Fantex® IPC Curtains

Antimicrobial disposable hospital curtains

For cubicles, showers and windows

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 standard disposable privacy curtains and replacing them with more hygienic alternatives to better protect their patients and staff.

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 prevent the transfer of pathogens to interacting hands, helping to break the chain of transmission and reduce the cross-contamination risk commonly associated with alternative hospital curtains.

Scientifically proven to kill 99.9% of a broad spectrum of microorganisms in under 1 minute, Fantex® works quickly and effectively to eliminate contamination on the surface of the curtain and break the chain of transmission by preventing the transfer of pathogens to interacting hands. With its unique long-lasting formulation, Fantex® reduces the cross-contamination risk commonly associated with alternative hospital curtains and creates a safer patient environment.
