How often do Endurocide® Untreated Curtains need to be replaced?

Due to the nature of polypropylene and the fact that the curtains are designed to be disposable, Endurocide® Untreated Curtains should be removed after up to 3 months of use in-situ, or earlier if visibly soiled. 

Each hospital will have its own specific protocols and assessments regarding the changing of curtains and these should be adhered to.  We would however recommend that all curtains should be replaced when visibly dirty.

Any timescales provided/referenced are always offered as a guideline only and under no circumstances whatsoever constitute a guarantee.

How do I know I'm choosing the correct hook for my railing system?

When choosing the type of hook you order with your curtain, it’s important that you order the correct size to fit your railing - and with so many types of railings available worldwide, this is sometimes easier said than done!

There are two ways to help ensure the hook will be suitable for your railing:

  • Hook measurements: take the measurements of your existing hooks.
  • The two dimensions you require are head/glider width (A) and neck width (B).
DIMENSIONS HOOK GLIDER
  • Railing measurements: if available,use the inner measurements of your railing.
  • The two dimensions you require are inner width (X) and channel width (Y).
DIMENSIONS RAILING
  • These measurements will make sure your hook fits in your railing and is neither too big (won't fit) nor too small (will fall out)!

Please note: it is important to ensure that the same hook is used throughout your Curtain.  You should never mix hooks types or hook suppliers on one Curtain, as even similar type hooks can have significant differences in dimensions.  To ensure uniform glide of your Curtain in the railing, rails should be regularly cleaned, free from obstacles or gaps and all hooks should be hung at the same height.  Bio Technics accepts no responsibility for the performance of railings.

* The railings given are examples of commonly available systems - it is not meant to suggest that this is the only system that these hooks are suitable for use with.
** The X and Y measurements are not applicable to our U-Type hooks as these are designed to fit over the railing.

Can I clean or wipe Endurocide® Disposable Curtains?

No: it is not advised to clean any of our curtains by any mechanical means.  When any of our curtains become visibly soiled, they should always be replaced.

Can I hang Endurocide® Curtains in areas of direct sunlight?

It is advised that Endurocide®Untreated Curtains are not placed in areas where they are exposed to prolonged direct sunlight.

The polypropylene material the curtains are made from is not UV resistant and may suffer accelerated ageing as a result. This will lead to a loss in tensile strength and elasticity of the curtains. This will become visible as “pilling”. This is caused by the fibres in the polypropylene becoming brittle with UV exposure and coming loose from the main fibre chains and breaking down.

This effect is normally only observed after several months in direct sunlight.

However, any timescales provided/referenced are always offered as a guideline only and under no circumstances whatsoever constitute a guarantee.

Can I leave Endurocide® Untreated Curtains in-situ when disinfecting with a misting/fogging machine?

No: it is recommended that Endurocide® Untreated Curtains are taken down when disinfecting with a misting/fogging machine.  The use of peroxide is also likely to affect the labels affixed to the curtains. This will be visible a discoloration of the lettering of the curtain label.

Are there any instructions supplied with Endurocide® Curtains?

Yes: every box of curtains includes an Instruction Sheet in order to give our end users clear information on how to use and get the most out of their curtains. To download a copy, please click here.

How should you dispose of used Endurocide® Curtains?

All Endurocide® Curtains are manufactured from 100% recyclable polypropylene.  However, as the curtains are designed to come in contact with potential hospital pathogens, we would recommend that after use, Endurocide® Curtains be disposed of as hospital waste or in accordance with local regulations.

For those customers concerned with the whole life of their products, there is the possibility of incinerating the curtains after use for their calorific value.  Polypropylene has a high calorific value and one full width curtain could potentially generate enough energy to light a standard light bulb for an hour and a half. 

However, any hospital specific protocols or local regulations concerning the safe disposal of clinical waste should always be adhered to.

Are Endurocide® Curtains available from the NHS Supply Chain?

Yes:  Endurocide® Untreated Disposable Curtains are currently available from the NHS Supply Chain in England and Wales.
