Fantex® IPC Curtains

Antimicrobial disposable hospital curtains

Manufactured with Fantex® antimicrobial fabric which has rapid Log 3 efficacy and residual activity against a broad spectrum of pathogens.

These best in class hospital curtains significantly reduce cross contamination within the hospital environment which decreases the risk of contracting life threatening HCAIs.

With its unique formulation and best-in-class speed of kill, Fantex® effectively prevents the transfer of pathogens to interacting hands, helping to break the chain of transmission and significantly reducing the spread of infection within the hospital environment.

Currently the only curtain scientifically proven to kill pathogens and remain free from contamination, Fantex® IPC Curtains contribute to a safer patient environment and help to reduce the risk of HCPs or patients contracting life-threatening HCAIs.

  • Hygienic, non-woven polypropylene fabric
  • Cost effective alternative to linen curtains which eliminates laundering costs
  • Eco-friendly and 100% recyclable
  • Clear date labelling with Timestrips to improve compliance
  • Rapid changeout in one minute to increase patient throughput
  • Fire retardant to BS 5867 and NFPA 701

Colours
Fantex® IPC Curtains are available in seven colours

Hook Types
Our robust polypropylene hooks are ultrasonically welded to the curtain fabric for added strength. Both Unifit and Easyfit styles are easy and quick to hang. The Easyfit curtains are designed to install directly into the track making hanging and removal times significantly faster and more economical than the traditional method that requires each curtain be attached to a large number of wheeled swivel hooks, often a slow and laborious process. Our Easyfit hook is designed to glide smoothly along the curtain tracks due to its low resistance profile.

Fantex® hospital curtains rapidly kill a broad spectrum of bacteria, viruses and molds to Log 3 (99.9%) efficacy within one minute. Fantex’s unique mode of action ensures that pathogenic microorganisms are killed quickly upon contact. This speed of kill greatly reduces the risk of pathogens being transferred to hands, preventing the cross-contamination that leads to the spread of HAIs.

Speed of Kill
It is crucially important that an antimicrobial curtain kills microbes quickly. This is so that any bacteria or viruses deposited on the curtain fabric by a contaminated hand are subjected to the full force of the antimicrobial’s killing efficacy before another hand touches the same area and becomes contaminated with the pathogen. Such cross-contamination at so-called ‘touch-points’ is a major concern in infection prevention.

Hygenica demonstrates the speed of its Fantex®-coated curtain fabric’s killing abilities using the international standard BS EN ISO 20743 – Determination of antibacterial activity of textile products. Testing is performed by MGS Laboratories, the UK’s pre-eminent accredited antimicrobial and disinfectant testing laboratory, used by leading pharmaceutical and FMCG corporations. Pathogens tested against include clinically relevant strains including antibiotic-resistant mutants.

Longevity of Action
Hygenica has done significant work to demonstrate that its curtain/blind fabric retains antimicrobial efficacy for the full lifetime of the product. It is not sufficient to simply test product that has been stored post-manufacture. Instead we test curtains and blinds that have been removed from hospitals at the end of their designated lifespan. We have also conducted laboratory environmental testing in which the fabric is exposed to UV, temperature cycling and humidity.

Fantex® and Coronavirus

Fantex® has been tested against feline coronavirus, a laboratory strain of coronavirus that is used to validate activity against this type of virus (including MERS and SARS). It was independently tested to EN 14476 Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of virucidal activity in the medical area, the official European standard for this type of activity, and passed with a log 4.17 reduction in virus level in 5 minutes contact time.

Fantex® fabric has been tested against bovine coronavirus, the recommended reference strain for validation of efficacy against SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. The testing was performed by Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH, a leading viral testing laboratory. Fantex® fabric demonstrated a log reduction in virus of 3.63 in a contact time of 15 minutes.
