Hygiene comes into focus

The focus of product development at DELIUS is function. We are always looking for new additional properties in textiles. Besides design, contract fabrics should also offer other valuable properties. At present, washability, disinfectant resistance and antibacterial features are increasingly in demand. Therefore, we have summarised all products that offer these properties for you here.


An important factor for the use of fabrics in the health sector is their washability at higher temperatures. But this is also becoming increasingly important in hotels. Washing at 60 °C kills considerably more bacteria than washing at 30 °C or 40 °C. But it is also important that the fabric remains beautiful, i.e. does not become washed-out or creased. For this reason, we have tested a large number of fabrics for washability at 60°C and marked them accordingly on the website.

Some health institutions even require hygienic laundry, where the fabrics are washed at 72 °C. This washing temperature also kills viruses. We have also carried out tests on this and achieved a good result with 34 articles.

Platus now also with antibacterial treatment

The currently proven and certified effectiveness of the treatment is directed against the following bacteria: Klebsiella pneumoniae.
(Klebsiella pneumoniae: Can cause pneumonia (hospital infections) and other infections; are known as a multi-resistant bacterial strain).

The usage properties and flame retardancy existing for Platus also apply to the article with antibacterial finish. The minimum order quantity is 300 metres per colour. All colours of the Platus 300 colour range are available.

Faux leather is basically easy to clean due to its plain surface. However, not all synthetic leathers are resistant to disinfectants. If the faux leathers are not suitable for treatment with disinfectants, the colours may fade, the surfaces get stained or become brittle. All DELIUS faux leathers can be cleaned with disinfectants without losing their beauty.
