It is proven that fabrics and their colours influence our mood and our well-being. The knowledge about the impact of colours plays a particular role in hospitals; this is true both for the physical and psychological comfort of patients as well as for the enormous challenges faced by doctors and nurses. Due to the strict hygienic regulations in hospitals there are only few possibilities to bring comfort and warmth to a room. Therefore, the styling of the window is of particular importance. Fabrics in a room produce comfort, they improve the acoustics, they protect privacy and they turn the room into a pleasant light. The furnishing fabrics of Prestige Care Concept are perfectly suited to the high requirements of the health care sector, both in quality and in function.
The permanent bio-active functional fabrics by DELIUS offer freshness and hygienic cleanliness. Silver ions which are firmly embedded in the fibre stop the growth of bacteria both within and outside the fibre. They thus protect against infections like MRSA in hospitals. DELICARE fabrics also reduce the formation of odours caused by microbes. Frequent washing does not reduce the function unlike with normal finishes. This is typical for DELIUS: the function is contained in the yarn and is not subsequently imposed by a finishing process; this also holds true for the flame retardancy.
