DISPOSABLE & RECYCLABLE CURTAINS

B-Clean Infection Prevention Curtains are designed to replace your existing reusable curtains in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, day surgeries, medical centers and other healthcare facilities that require the use of curtains. They offer a cost effective alternative to purchasing and washing reusable curtains and with their proven ability to inhibit bacterial growth, they can improve infection control at your facility. B-Clean Curtains are:

Manufactured from 100% polypropylene, non-woven fabric – 120gsm

Fire retardant (AS 2755.2-1985) – Failed to Burn

Impregnated with anti-bacterial and anti-mildew chemicals including nanometer silver (curtain and mesh)

Previous studies have demonstrated that pathogens such as Vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE), methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile are still present on non-disposable curtains even after one week post laundering (Ohl,M. et al 2011). Even with steam cleaning, the curtains still remained contaminated (White, L.F; Dancer, S.J; Robertson, C; 2007).

TEST RESULTS

BRIDGE HEALTHCARE has undertaken anti-bacterial testing with an Australian-based, NATA approved laboratory. Importantly, the tests were undertaken on the actual B-Clean Curtains, not just the chemical themselves.

RECOMMENDED CHANGEOVER PROCEDURE FOR BRIDGE HEALTHCARE DISPOSABLE & RECYCLABLE CURTAINS

B-Clean Curtains with their impregnated anti-bacterial and anti-mildew chemicals, including nanometer silver, have a proven ability to inhibit and reduce bacterial growth. This means that the frequency of curtain change may be less than required by untreated reusable curtains (as per the NHMRC 2010 guidelines as indicated in the right hand column below) thus saving time and money.
