Equipping your facility with well-designed solutions that are made with infection control properties in mind, will help ensure your cleaning routines are more effective and will ultimately support the health and safety of residents.
When selecting furnishings for your facility, we recommend that Aged Care organisations ask suppliers about the infection control properties of the furniture being considered. This will help ensure you make informed decisions that support your facilities overall infection control programmes.
At Cubro, we recently brought in a range of European chairs designed with superior infection control features. The Haelvoet range brings together comfort, sleek modern design elements and infection control properties that are suitable for use in care and hospital environments. Some of the key benefits of the Haelveot range include:
- Easy to clean
Because of their constant use, soft furnishings are potential carriers of bacteria and viruses. The Haelvoet range offer superior infection control with a removable seat ensuring staff can easily and thoroughly clean the seat and surrounding areas. This is particularly useful if there are any spills or incontinence. Seats can also be replaced over time, which ensures greater longevity.
- Waterproof and antibacterial fabric
The fabric is a smooth imitation leather. Careful attention has been taken to select textures that don’t have deep indents where bacteria can get stuck and continue to breed and with the antibacterial coating growth of bacteria is inhibited. In addition, the waterproof surface resists any liquids from entering the interior foam of the seat. The smooth surface is also easy to wipe down regularly and quick to dry.
Quality materials and design
With the 10-year warranty Haelvoet have been designed for durability. The welded metal frame provides a strong structure for the chair and high-quality fabric can withstand regular cleaning. By keeping the seat and leg rest separate (no upholstery connection) Haelvoet have eliminated any areas where dirt or bacteria can build up.
Jonathan Prangnell, Registered Nurse and Manager at Kaiapoi Lodge Residential Care recently replaced their resident’s chairs with the Haelvoet Domus chairs. We caught up with Jonathan to hear how his team and residents are finding the Haelvoet Domus chairs.
