Bleach-able Healthcare textile


Abracadabra, Hocus Pocus, Presto, and Voila! Vanish the days of muted colors and blah texture with Brentano's new high-performance upholsteries that combine wearability and cleanability with a soft hand and gorgeous color. All four of these magic-themed patterns can be cleaned with at least a 1:10 ratio of household bleach to water, making them perfect for healthcare, higher education, hospitality, and even high-traffic residential interiors. For institutional businesses requiring a classic look with easy cleanability, eco-friendly faux leathers Jetset and Paparazzi can be cleaned with 20% diluted household bleach.

These six new textiles add phenomenal variety to Brentano's previous selection of bleach cleanable textiles, bringing their offerings to 200+ SKU's. These include classics like the best selling Caress and Scuba, as well as several outdoor fabrics, such as Basketry and Lanai. All Brentano's bleach cleanable offerings can be cleaned with a 1:10 ratio of diluted household bleach, which makes them compliant with the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) standards for disinfection and sterilization, while many can be cleaned at a 1:5 ratio.

While all Brentano fabrics are designed with beauty + performance in mind, the new magic-themed patterns exemplify this company motto. Industry standards have developed that make solution dyed nylon and high-energy dyes not only bleach cleanable, but also offer incredibly clear color. Additionally, all four are finished either with Crypton or the combination of Nanotex and DuraBlock. "These finishes not only make them usable for hospitals, but also well-suited for restaurants and household kitchens," says Brentano Design Director Iris Wang. "We wanted to bring out fabrics designed for the strenuous needs of healthcare textiles while maintaining a look that works for residential and hospitality interiors."

Brentano's recent increase of high performance fabrics has also lead to updates on the website which makes searching for bleach cleanable, Crypton, and Nanotex fabrics a breeze. Simply visit www.brentanofabrics.com click on fabric search in the menu bar, and then select your chosen fabric type.
