Infection Prevention – CareFlex Fabric Range

Infection prevention and control is another current key objective and crucial to reducing the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus. To help in hospital settings or multi-user environments, where attention to infection control is critical, CareFlex are able to offer infection control covers. We have replaced Velcro in all exposed areas with plastic profile fittings and zips and minimised exposed seams.

We use a support surface Dartex® fabric that provides the optimal barrier to prevent the spread of infection:

  • Impermeable to bacteria, viruses and fluid ingress – polyurethane is a fluid-proof, breathable barrier.
  • Safe for skin contact.
  • Reliable – designed for purpose and to maximise the life of the support surface.1

The Shield Plus™ Anti-Microbial technology on our vinyl range has already been through independent testing against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus strain, to reassure our clients of the effectiveness of our vinyl range against the rise of new contagious diseases. Shield Plus™ Anti-Microbial protection literally attracts microbes (viruses, fungi and bacteria) and physically destroys them immediately on impact.  It has the broadest spectrum of effectiveness against bacteria, including C-Diff Spore and viruses, including the Coronavirus.2

CareFlex are here to support you when you need us – we are striving to keep offering our usual high-quality services in the safest possible way. If you can no longer accept visitors then we can offer remote clinical and technical support via video call. We also have a live chat representative available via our website during office hours. Our website has a range of useful and educational material, such as articles, videos and user guides.

Do not hesitate to call us on our free phone number 0800 016 8440 or email info@careflex.co.uk to discuss any seating needs and how we can help.
