Shieldplus Infection Control

ShieldPlus by Panaz is a fast acting, long-lasting, durable, effective protection against harmful bacteria and viruses without sacrificing the look and feel of our fabrics. ShieldPlus is safe for the planet and uses no harmful chemicals. It is available as standard on many of our fabrics and Base Cloths and as an optional extra on others.

Not All Antimicrobial Solutions are the Same

To ensure long-term success and suitability of care home installations, architects should take several performance and design considerations into consideration at the design stage.

This includes fabrics that feature fast-acting antimicrobial technologies that have been applied during the manufacturing process. With Panaz fabrics featuring inherent antimicrobial properties, architects can support care home professionals to achieve the highest standards of hygiene.

This durable and safe-to-use technology provides nanotechnology-based protection that fights against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites including Coronavirus, MRSA, C-diff Spore, and Norovirus.

When only the best will do, you have to come to Panaz.



With workplaces becoming more mobile and collaborative, companies are offering shared workspaces to support flexible and versatile workstyles.

This trend highlights the need to limit the spread of harmful bacteria in response to more shared workstation usage.



Hospitality settings are inherently public spaces visited by numerous individuals. Offering guests a clean and secure environment not only improves their experience and well-being but also provides a sense of comfort to the hotel staff.

The costs of bacterial or viral outbreaks and the resulting damage to reputations can be substantial.

To reduce these risks, it is important to implement a hygiene protocol and to use protective fabrics whenever possible.


The extent of hospital-acquired infections is increasing worldwide, posing a serious threat to patient safety and well-being.

The financial stress on healthcare systems, affecting both hospitals and the broader healthcare network, includes longer hospital stays, extra treatments, outpatient appointments, and visits to general practitioners and community care providers, all impacting human well-being.


Today, educational facilities welcome students from a wide range of countries and regions.

To ensure that they are safe while learning, socialising, and sleeping, the facilities they are provided with have to be as safe as possible.

Shieldplus provides a durable antimicrobial barrier that reduces infection and provides a barrier on furniture and upholstery.
