V-GUARD Technology mattress covers are designed to provide comfort, being made from multi-stretch fabric.
V-GUARD Technology mattress covers are designed to provide comfort, being made from multi-stretch fabric. The breathable, moisture vapour properties of the V-Guard Technology help improve patient comfort. This also provides higher pressure care without compromising comfort, as any moisture under the skin in areas of increased pressure have reduced risk of ulcers.
V-GUARD Technology mattress covers incorporate infection control and antidecubitus characteristics. Our mattress covers provide an impenetrable barrier to viruses and bacteria. Being extremely easy to clean, they can be wiped down with warm water and mild detergent. If required, the cover can be machine washed for up to 95°C. Cleaned with chlorine-based chemicals the cover can stand up to 10,000 ppm concentration.
V-Guard Technology mattress covers are designed to significantly reduce pressure ulcers. Our formulations reduce friction and help disperse moisture, both of which are major contributing factors to the formation of pressure ulcers.
V-Guard Technology mattress covers boast an outstanding collection of technical properties that have been developed to make them the ultimate mattress covers for your organisation:
- Hydrolysis resistance >1 year
- Excellent resistance to active chlorine
- FR to BS7175 Crib 5 / Crib 7 variant available
- Autoclave resistant
- Dry cleanable
- Washable to 95°C
- Antibacterial and Antifungal treated
- HF Weldable
- MVP (moisture vapour permeability)
- WPR >5m (water penetration resistance)
The V-GUARD™ covers have welded seams which are ingress proof, minimising any risk of harbouring viruses or bacteria and transmitting infections.
4 Way Stretch
V-GUARD™ Technology provides multi-direction stretch which will conform to the contours of the patient and medical apparatus for maximum comfort.
V-GUARD™ Technology mattress covers are flame retardant and are independently tested to ensure that they conform to UK Standards.
The V-GUARD™ mattress covers are waterproof and have been vigorously tested internally and independently to simulate the demanding conditions experienced in the healthcare sector.
V-GUARD™ mattress covers are built to withstand the aggressive cleaning regimes used within the acute care environment. They can be easily wiped down or washed at 95 degrees Celsius.
