Clean environment

Today, clean environments in medical areas are gaining in importance, especially in hospitals and healthcare environments. Statistics prove that it is absolutely necessary to implement good cleaning and disinfection procedures in order to prevent microbial contamination of patients who were not infected at the time of admission. Every hospital location risks of being contaminated when not properly disinfected. This obviously includes mattress covers. Adding antibacterial product to the coating during the production process, improves the protection, while creating a hostile environment for the bacteria on the protector. This treatment is based upon the “silver technology”.
