Trevira CS – Flame retardant textiles for hospitals and the care sector


As the population ages, the use of attractive design in hospitals and care home interiors is becoming increasingly important. Textiles represent one of the most flexible elements in interior design. They are light; they are easily sourced, refurbished or changed; and they offer a wide range of individual design possibilities.

Safety is the number one priority for decision-makers when selecting products, as nowadays it is taken as read that textiles in public spaces and in the contract market must satisfy preventive fire protection requirements. Flame retardant polyester textiles like Trevira CS already play a key role in interior furnishing concepts, not only in the home but also in hospitals and other care-providing institutions.

Alongside flame retardancy, an ever-growing importance is attached to hygiene. Textiles like Trevira CS Bioactive are not only flame retardant but also have antimicrobial properties. In this way they help to prevent bacteria spreading in and on the fibre, keeping textiles fresher for longer.
