*The cost savings were based on comparing the use of Endurocide® Antimicrobial & Sporicidal Curtains with traditional cotton cubicle curtains, not only in regards to the initial purchasing costs but to the saving of labour and laundering over two years.

DISCLAIMER: While Endurocide®  Antimicrobial & Sporicidal Curtains have been independently tested to remain antimicrobially and sporicidally effective for up to two years in-situ, the actual length of curtain use achieved will depend on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to; individual hospital practices, the natural longevity of polypropylene and the risk of the curtain being soiled from items such as blood, urine and general spills etc.  Curtains should always be replaced when visibly soiled. Any timescales provided/referenced are always offered as a guideline only and under no circumstances whatsoever constitute a guarantee.
