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.

The 4 Key Requirements of a Hygienic Fabric
For a antimicrobial treated disposable cubicle curtain to be effective at reducing curtain 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.
Creating a safer patient environment
In a busy clinical setting, hospital curtains can be touched countless times by healthcare professionals, visitors, and patients before, during and after patient care.
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.
An Infection Control Tool to Protect Healthcare Professionals and Patients
Fantex® IPC hospital curtains are highly regarded amongst clinicians and infection prevention and control professionals globally as the most hygienic option to reduce the cross-contamination risk commonly associated with fabric and un-treated disposable alternatives.
As such, many leading hospitals across the UK, Europe and the United States have successfully adopted Fantex® infection prevention technology to protect HCWs and improve standards of patient care.
