Wallcovering Withstands Disinfectant Cleanings

Friday, August 21, 2009

Comment | More

The complete line of Xorel wallcovering and upholstery has been proved to resist damage after multiple cleanings with a disinfectant cleanser commonly used in health-care facilities, Xorel’s manufacturer has announced.

Carnegie, maker of Xorel, says the line resisted damage after multiple cleanings with Virex TB disinfectant cleaner.
 
Many hospitals, healthcare facilities and nursing homes in the U.S. use Virex TB or similar commercial cleaning products to effectively deal with increasingly virulent micro-organisms.

In response to concerns from wallcovering specifiers and end-users in choosing a durable product for these environments, Carnegie has conducted in-house testing of the Virex Tb cleaning solution on its collection of inherently sustainable Xorel.
 
“The high-alkaline cleaning solutions kill germs, but they also proved very damaging to many wallcoverings,” says Heather Bush, Executive Vice President of Creative for Carnegie.

 “Xorel has been a proven performance product for walls, panels and upholstery in healthcare environments since its introduction in 1981. This is just another example of its extraordinary capabilities and unmatched resilience.”

Carnegie is a leading manufacturer and innovator of textiles in North America. Since 1950, the family-owned company has established a tradition of firsts, including the development of its own Xorel fabrics, which provide a durable alternative to PVC materials and are included in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
