The CareFlex Fabric Range offers a selection of refreshing colours that have been carefully selected to suit a variety of health, care and home environments.

Customer Material Choice – As an extra service we can customise the chair with a fabric of choice outside of the standard range. We’ll simply supply a quotation for the chosen fabric on request. (Orders are subject to an administration fee).

Our standard CareFlex fabric range of vinyls come with Antimicorobial Shieldplus Protection. This layer of protection permanently inhibits the broadest spectrum of microbes (even C. difficile and COVID-19) and prevents nasty odours.

All our fabrics are easy to clean and offer high levels of comfort and durability. They are manufactured to be resistant to moisture ingress, and meet Crib-5 fire retardancy standards. Please see our cleaning guide for full details on recommended cleaning.

All technical cards and certifications are available upon request please email: should you require any copies or to request copies of our fabric guide.

To help in healthcare settings, care homes and other multi-user environments, where attention to IPC 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 Panatech Vapour Permeable fabric for our support surfaces, which is the optimal material to prevent the spread of infection:

  • Safe material for skin contact.
  • Impermeable to bacteria, viruses and fluid ingress – polyurethane is a fluid-proof, breathable barrier.
  • Promotes vapour release to maintain a healthy microclimate.
  • Reliable and designed for purpose to maximise the life of the support surface.

Additionally, the Shield Plus™ anti-microbial technology on our vinyl range has been through independent testing against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus strain, to reassure clients and clinicians of its effectiveness against the rise of new contagious diseases. Shield Plus™ anti-microbial protection literally attracts microbes (viruses, fungi and bacteria) and physically destroys them on impact.  It has the broadest spectrum of effectiveness against bacteria, including C. diff, and viruses, including COVID-19.
