Sure, disposables are cheaper initially versus a Sereneview curtain. But then you have to consider that you will need to change the disposable curtain as many as six times in one month. By the time you add labor, you’re already spending more per month than you would if you had a Sereneview curtain. Imagine what you could do with all that extra money and time wasted hanging and removing disposable curtains.

AEGIS Microbe Shield is a durable, non-leaching technology safer than other antimicrobial systems. Other antimicrobials rely on leaching to repel microorganisms. The AEGIS technology repels these microorganisms on contact without leaching into the environment. It has exceeded fifty commercial launderings in durability.

Microorganism is electrocuted. Since the AEGIS Microbe Shield technology is not consumed to destroy the organism, it stands ready to fight again. It is extremely durable after multiple washings. Cell membrane is attracted to the treated surface and punctured by the long molecule chain.

Recently, our Avalon Armor fabric passed testing with the SARS-COVID-2 virus that shares the same RNA genome and responds in the same way as COVID-19. The tests used a Control fabric without any finishes to compare with the Avalon Armor Test fabric, with AEGIS® antimicrobial and stain-guard finishes. The Microbiological Solutions Lab tested the material at fifteen-minute and one-hour intervals. After the lab applied feline coronavirus to both fabrics, the Control fabric showed a 48.91% viral load reduction after fifteen minutes versus 60.44% for the Armor fabric. After one hour, the Control fabric showed a 71.27% viral load reduction, versus 97.91% with the Avalon Armor fabric. In a previous test, both swatches were exposed to UV light, mimicking a similar protocol using UV-C machines. The Control fabric showed an 81.58% reduction of the viral load. In comparison, the treated Armor fabric showed a 99.95% reduction of the viral load. Here is a PDF to the report.

Disposable curtains are made of plastic and replaced after they’ve been soiled or exposed to any number of microorganisms. Even though they claim to be recyclable, the plastics recycling business worldwide is not functioning as envisioned, with the disposable curtains adding to the pile-up. Today, you have to pay to dispose of plastics, even more if it’s biohazardous.

Eliminate biohazardous waste in the landfill

Bodily fluids, Betadine, ink pen marks, oil, dirt, grease all come out of Sereneview curtains with off-the-shelf cleaners, even after six months.

Our printing process requires different printing art on each side of the fabric with a process called “dye-sublimation” where the printing is transferred from paper to fabric with 400° of heat. With this process, the color will not fade or bleed over time. Additionally, the material has a unique construction so that the printing on one side doesn’t bleed through. This construction gives the fabric additional opacity and privacy than most curtains.

We’re all wired the same. And when viewing nature, our bodies release serotonin, the happy hormone. They are a quiet distraction. The staff likes to use the curtains as a distraction when administering uncomfortable procedures.

If you want to affect patient care, start with the staff. Studies have shown that team members are more efficient when they view nature during a normal shift. Patients notice calmer staff and respond accordingly.
