Shieldplus Infection Control

ShieldPlus infection control technology by Panaz is fast acting, long-lasting, durable, effective protection against harmful bacteria and viruses without needing to sacrifice the look and feel of the material. It is safe for the planet since it uses no harmful chemicals, and is available as standard on many of our fabrics — or as an optional extra on others. 

Not All Antimicrobial Solutions are Created the Same

Our ShieldPlus fabrics have been utilised with great success across workspace, hospitality, and healthcare for decades.

ShieldPlus is different to other solutions on the marketplace. The technology is applied directly to Panaz fabrics during manufacturing to create a covalent bond that permanently fixes the antimicrobial onto the fabric.

ShieldPlus by Panaz is water-based and non-depleting, giving the long-lasting protection needed. Finally, unlike other solutions ShieldPlus instantly kills, making it perfect for high traffic environments.
