Relax - FibreGuard’s got you covered

Keeping furniture upholstery clean and looking great is a real issue for home owners and a technical issue for manufacturers and designers.  Specifying an everyday fabric that looks great, is soft to the touch, and will last across all applications is not easy. A fast evolving textile solution is FibreGuard stain resistant protection.
 

Developed in European laboratories by major global supplier, Bru Textiles, FibreGuard provides strong stain resistance for a wide variety of common household stains. The FibreGuard process coats the yarn in the finishing process resulting in an inherent strength and longevity to the stain resistance that will last for the life of the fabric.

Durable and reliable, FibreGuard fabrics have undergone stringent laboratory testing; used across the globe and performing exceptionally well in commercial projects.  A 5-year residential stain resistant warranty in Australia and New Zealand provides both design specifiers and consumers peace of mind.

Resisting stains and being easy to clean makes FibreGuard stand out from other stain repellent applications. Stains are easily removed using a clean cloth, water and sometimes soap, enabling cleaning without specialised solutions or chemical cleaners.  The simple cleaning process and excellent results on any coloured fabric make FibreGuard unique.

FibreGuard is also Oeko-Tex certified, a global independent standard involving the testing of the fabric for harmful substances. Oeko-Tex tests for numerous regulated and non-regulated substances which are harmful to human health. This certification ensures FibreGuard is environmentally safe to use in any residential or commercial setting.

The FibreGuard range is growing every year and currently there are almost 1,000 designs and colours available across the Zepel brand. Quickly becoming a standard in stain resistant fabrics, FibreGuard can be seen across a wide range of commercial projects in New Zealand and Australia as well as across the globe.
