The inherent FibreGuard protection is the result of extensive research and testing by interior designers and textile engineers. The FibreGuard effect is permanent, with the special technology coating the yarn in the finishing process, meaning that the stain-free properties are inherent in the fabric. This means you can clean the fabric over and over without it washing away.
FibreGuard Pro is an additional range of FibreGuard fabrics that have a unique finish, ensuring moisture is unable to pass through the fabric, stopping odour and the spread of germs. FibreGuard Pro is anti-microbial, moisture proof, mildew resistant and easy to clean – making it highly relevant for interiors such as hospitals, aged care facilities, hotels and restaurants.
FibreGuard Pro fabrics are not only moisture-resistant, they are also durable and long lasting. Fully washable to 30 degrees, the distinct fabric attributes are sustained during the wash process resulting in continued benefits for years to come.
FibreGuard fabrics are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified, which means that the fabrics are produced in a way that is safe for the environment and humans and that no harmful chemicals or finishes are released into the environement. Read more on Oeko-Tex® here.
This global certification system assures manufacturers, sourcers, brands, retailers, and consumers around the world that certified products meet the strict limit values for harmful substances of Oeko-Tex® and that these substances are not present in critical concentrations. Oeko-Tex® originally tested for about 100 chemicals like pesticides, carcinogenic colourants and heavy metals but today Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 covers a wide array of several hundred harmful substances.
For example, Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 tests for banned azo dyes, carcinogenic and allergy-inducing colourants, pesticides for textiles made of natural fibres, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), tin organic compounds, chlorinated phenols, phthalates (softeners), PFOS, PFOA and surfactant wetting agent residues (APEOs) just to name a few.
Generally, most stains can be removed by applying water and dabbing with a clean cloth. Occasionally a little rub of a soap bar and addition of water will be needed to lift tougher stains. For full FibreGuard fabric cleaning tips read our articles here
