Quarter 4 2019


And with that, 2019 is almost completed. Christmas decorations are going up and we’ll all be making our New Year’s Resolutions. But before we get into a festive frenzy, we want to share our latest news from the the Healthcare & Medical world, including how we've been contributing our research into the properties of engineered coated fabrics to the top industry events.

Over the festive period, the Nottingham office will be closed from 1pm Friday 20th December, and will re-open Thursday 2 January 2020 at 8am. The Rhode Island facility will be closed 25th December and 1st January and operating normal working hours at all other times.

On behalf of us all at Trelleborg Engineered Coated Fabrics, we wish you a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year

Best regards

Mark Jones

More than a mattress cover
Are you in the process of designing a new medical support surface? Dartex manufactures more than just the mattress cover. Have a chat with us about:
  • Air mattress bladder fabric – lightweight and strong
  • Base material – breathable and durable to prevent pooling
    • Grabby base to ‘stick’ to the medical device
    • Slippy base for ease of patient movement 
  • Dartex Leather – Waterproof faux leather for a luxurious feel 
Contact to find out more.
Keep it clean for a maximum lifetime
One of the most common questions our technical team gets asked is, ‘How do we clean our Dartex® medical covers properly?’ We’ve put together this quick cleaning guide aimed at helping to keep your covers at their tip top best. Remember, always follow the medical device manufacturer’s guidance in the first instance.
A small gesture makes a big difference for specialist seating
Following the donation of a few meters of Dartex® fabric for specialist postural chairs at a Chinese orphanage, we were delighted to see the positive impact it has had on residents. With more fabric donations on the way, it is good to know that a little bit of polyurethane-coated fabric can make such a difference to young lives.
