HIGH-TECH FLAME-RETARDANT DECORATIVE FABRICS
We manufacture flame-retardant decorative fabrics, using the brand fibres of Trevira CS, for the entire commercial segment as well as for private property. We also provide intelligent fabrics: drapilux air, drapilux akustik and drapilux bioactive.
DRAPILUX AIR – NEUTRALISER FOR AIR POLLUTANTS AND SMELLS
drapilux air is a combination of flame resistant Trevira CS fibre and air-recreating air technology. Pollutants and smells are neutralised by the catalytic effect. A room’s air can be continuously cleaned day and night.
Scientific studies have proven its outstanding efficiency, including the reduction of more poisonous materials. Formaldehyde is just as effectively diminished as tobacco smoke or animal smells.
drapilux air received the ‘innovation price textile and object’ award from the architecture magazines AIT, ABIT and Intelligent Architecture. It is suited for employment in all highly frequented or loaded areas.
DRAPILUX BIOACTIVE DECORATION MATERIALS
drapilux bioactive decoration materials prevent the exponential growth of the most frequent infection exciters in the Krankenhhaus (Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus Aureus). Hygiene-wise, the antimicrobial effect sets new yardsticks. The magazine eurodecor praised drapilux bioactive as “the best innovation of the year 2004.”
drapilux bioactive was also awarded the ‘the innovation prize for architecture and health’ on the occasion of the 2005 Altenpflege+Propflege fair. This prize addresses itself to designers and manufacturers of innovative products, which underlines the meaning of architectural quality within the areas of social health and living. The areas of application for drapilux bioactive include medical mechanisms and medical practices.
