With specialized fabrics designed and engineered to meet the unique needs of the healthcare industry, we provide the highest levels of comfort, durability, and performance. Explore our fabrics to learn more about our products and how they can help enhance healthcare delivery in your market.

Durability is a key feature facilitated by the polyester content, ensuring an extended garment lifespan and ease of care. The fabrics are resistant to frequent washing and sterilization, a selection of these variants are even capable of enduring up to 150 washing cycles without compromising their inherent characteristics.

Performance and comfort are key in fabric development for healthcare environments. Our medical and cleanroom fabrics, containing microfiber polyester for a soft handle, offer lightweight wearability alongside enhanced softness. Air permeability and breathability properties ensure the required comfort during long shifts.

Antistatic properties further enhance the functionality of our fabrics for medical and cleanroom applications. Whether through the inclusion of antistatic yarn or the application of an antistatic finish, our fabrics reduce static electricity buildup on the garment surface.

Compliance in healthcare

Solutions that benefit both patients and professionals

In healthcare, compliance to standards like EN 13795 is crucial for patient safety, especially during medical procedures. This standard dictates how surgical gowns and clothing are tested to ensure they effectively protect patients from contamination.

However, the responsibility doesn’t end with patient protection alone. If a manufacturer claims their gown offers protection for medical staff, it transitions from being a medical device to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This shift requires compliance with the requirements outlined in Regulation 2016/425 and the corresponding product standard such as EN 14126: Protective Clothing. Under these regulations, surgical gowns and clothing need to demonstrate that they effectively protect wearers from infective agents through strict testing and performance standards.

"Ultimately, the goal is clear: to prioritize the safety of both patients and medical staff in healthcare settings."
