Heathcoat Fabrics has a long and successful history in providing practical and innovative solutions for the diverse healthcare sector. We are a long-standing supplier of medical fabrics, providing quality, specialist textile products for a variety of uses in a choice of locations, from hospitals to rehabilitation centres and care homes for the elderly.
Heathcoat’s specialist range of knitted and woven medical textiles include high-tenacity meshes, solid knitted fabrics and lightweight high tensile woven fabrics.
All of our healthcare fabrics can be dyed to customer-specific colour choices, can incorporate antibacterial treatments and yarns, and laundered at industrial temperatures.
A selected product range is maintained for immediate supply.
We developed our unique ‘Ag+’ treatment in response to the ever-demanding threat of infection within confined healthcare environments (hospital acquired infection – HAI).
Ag+ incorporates the application of pure silver ions – which decrease the risk of infection and cross-contamination; and helps reduce odour without irritation. The treatment can be applied to any of our medical textile products giving them anti-bacterial properties that increase the levels of comfort, safety and hygiene.
Our Ag+ treatment is durable after laundering, meet the highest Oekotex® Class 100 standard; and helps to reduce the occurrence of C.Dif infection.
Heathcoat medical fabric products are also fully REACH compliant, the European legislation to protect human health and the environment from the risks associated from the use of chemicals.
