Stericurtain Reusable Curtains
Stericurtain is a reusable PVC coated curtain that has anti-microbial properties and a wipe clean surface which prevents the spread of infection. Unlike other rigid PVC fabrics, Stericurtain is a PVC coated polyester which gives it more flexibility to drape like a conventional curtain and can be safely used in hospital wards.
Reusable curtains are a far more cost effective and sustainable option than disposable curtains saving hospitals thousands in waste, facilities and laundry costs. You could be benefiting from a 76% reduction in curtain costs by switching to Stericurtain.
The fabric allows bodily fluid spills to be cleaned immediately using a detergent, unlike other absorbent fabrics. Manufactured from 100% polyester PVC laminated fabric which will not tear or stain. Available as standard in 3 widths – 7m, 5m, and 3m with a 2m drop or made to measure. Manufactured on site in the UK for fast order turnaround.
