Specialist Contract Fabrics

The rapid spread of Coronavirus has caused a great amount of alarm and fear across the planet in the last few weeks

As global suppliers of anti-microbial fabrics for the healthcare, we are acutely aware of the need for textiles which effectively prevent the spread of infectious diseases in hospitals, care homes and other environments where vulnerable individuals may be exposed to potentially harmful pathogens. As such, we have taken the proactive measure of independently testing our Shieldplus™ Anti-Microbial technology against the spread of the coronavirus strain, to reassure our customers of the effectiveness of Panaz products against the rise of new contagious diseases.

We are hopeful that the threat posed by the Coronavirus will soon pass, however such events remind us of the vigilance required by those of us operating within the healthcare industry must have against the spread of new infections.
