How smart are your shower curtains?
Smart enough to help you combat infection?
As a health care professionals, you understand that everything in the care environment is a potential reservoir in the chain of infection. Warm, humid conditions and multiple users make ablution areas ideal breeding grounds for microorganisms. The constant transfer of potentially harmful microorganisms onto shower curtains can frustrate even the most vigorous cleaning routine. These microorganisms multiply rapidly and await the chance to seed the next nosocomial infection.
Contour Showers Ltd. have created a new range of curtains that are smart not just because of the high quality of the materials and their exceptional build quality, but also because they now react aggressively towards microorganisms. Our new shower curtains work to break the chain of infection. At the same time, they can work to extend their operational lives by combating degradation resulting from bacterial staining.
Most antibacterial finishes, disinfectants and cleaning agents soon wear off in use. The antibacterial properties of our Dove range of shower curtains are durable, because we integrate Microban antibacterial protection within our curtain fabric. Microban works continuously to inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms to help optimise your aseptic programme.
Incorporated into our high-quality polyester during the manufacturing process, Microban additives securely attach themselves to the polymer. The manufacturing process is not disrupted, and the curtains retain our trademark excellence in tensile strength, colour and finish. We precisely engineer our Dove range of shower curtains to contain exactly the right amount of Microban to provide long-lasting antibacterial protection.
Tiny peaks of Microban molecules exist across the entire surface as a deadly trap for all microorganisms. Like balloons falling on a carpet of pins, cell walls contact the additives and rupture. Microban does not react directly with the cell contents or DNA, therefore preventing the microorganisms that it attacks from developing resistance. Microban is effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens, and is proven safe for human contact.
Not content to let Microban do all the work to help your curtains retain their smart look and feel, we have incorporated a “rolled-in” weight in the hem of the curtains and ample corrosion-resistant eyelets. The distinctive hem prevents the curtain from riding up through the effects of static, and stops trapped residues establishing new reservoirs of infection.
Contour Showers Ltd. holds the exclusive UK license to incorporate Microban antibacterial protection in the Dove range of shower curtains. These new curtains compliment our existing range of Microban antibacterial shower trays and enclosures, and will help to keep your bathroom fittings as smart as they were on the day you installed them.
