  Hospital curtains, also called cubicle curtains, are a way to provide privacy for patients in the hospital. Curtains are usually made of intrinsically flame-retardant (IFR) fabrics and are usually suspended from supporting structures or ceiling rails, extending almost all the way to the floor.


  Hospital curtains are mass-produced to meet the needs of millions of medical institutions around the world. They are made of a variety of different materials because health and safety requirements vary from location to location. For example, in the United States, the top of curtains must have at least 70% mesh. This allows water from the sprinkler to penetrate the curtains in the event of a fire.


  In the 1980s, there were only one or two curtain designs to choose from, and 20 years later, dozens of options were offered. The various curtains provided include curtains that can be quickly replaced with other curtains designed for ultimate privacy. Many companies design specific types of hospital curtains, hoping to make patients' visits more enjoyable. Medical institutions can even choose their own designs, the colors may be bright, aimed at improving the mood of patients.


  However, one of the main problems with old hospital curtains is that they can easily spread diseases. Pathogenic microorganisms will attach to the curtains and can easily spread throughout the hospital. Studies have found that the presence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on the curtains of hospital cubicles can cause serious and potentially fatal diseases. In order to solve this problem, a special material is now used to prevent this from happening-non-woven disposable hospital curtains!


  Disposable curtains are made of 100% polypropylene non-woven fabric and are treated with built-in antimicrobial additives, which are embedded in the polymer structure of the non-woven fabric during manufacture. The antibacterial active substance is evenly distributed throughout the curtain. Its effectiveness will last the life of the curtain.


  Today, millions of medical institutions around the world are using disposable curtains to prevent the spread of HAI (hospital-acquired infections) including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), thereby helping patients and work People provide a safer and better environment.
