Standard Textile Interior’s is launching its second collection with Applied Textiles Alta™ Healthcare fabric technology. This award-winning, antimicrobial, water-based fabric technology with moisture barrier is designed to deliver the correct level of protection for each application, whether it’s lighter-duty administrative areas or heavy-duty and high-traffic areas such as lobbies, waiting rooms, or food and beverage concessions/dining rooms.
Alta™ repellency technology improves the surface energy of the textile creating repellency to water and oil-based liquids, dust, and airborne particulates. The antimicrobial integrates with the Alta™ repellency to eliminate microbes, bacteria, fungus, and mold upon contact. The combination of Alta™ repellency and antimicrobial properties ensures a textile is highly cleanable, while reducing odors and microbes between cleanings.
Most generic stain finishes are topical, temporary, and will wash or wear off. Alta™ is bonded permanently to the fiber and will last the life of the fabric. Unbranded soil and stain can often make fabrics burn, Alta™ does just the opposite making fabrics meet the correct fire code.
Alta™ antimicrobial technology combines high level repellency with a safe, EPA registered antimicrobial.
