Introducing Camira's Anti-Microbial Fabrics

Coronavirus has caused global turmoil and placed new emphasis on issues of hygiene and sanitation. While it’s impossible to apply social distancing to the furniture we sit on, what we can do is make our upholstery as safe and as easy to clean as possible when it comes to infection control.

Camira's collection of performance fabrics and vinyls are all anti-microbial, bleach cleanable, waterproof, and flame retardant to the higher level Crib 5 Medium Hazard standard.

To make this easier for you to navigate and digest, Camira have created a flipbook resource for you to browse and download.

All of these fabrics and vinyls can be used on the FG Library furniture range including StoryWall®, StudyWall®, soft and study seating, The Oasis collection, privacy and dividing screens and much more.*

Frequently asked questions:

Q. Are these fabrics and vinyls effective against Coronavirus?
A. They protect against a wide range of bacteria which cause infection - such as MRSA, Salmonella and E.coli - and so can provide hygiene benefits in wide ranging commercial end-use areas, including healthcare, hospitality, education and contract office. No anti-microbial testing has yet been carried out against Coronavirus, as it is not yet clear what specific strain of virus to test against.

Q. What cleaning recommendations would you advise for these products?
A. They are all bleach cleanable with a 10% bleach chlorine solution. In addition, the same basic principles for care and maintenance continue to apply: vacuum upholstery regularly to remove dust, dirt and crumbs; attend to stains quickly with a damp cloth; use branded upholstery shampoo on specific types of staining; and periodically consider specialist deep cleaning services such as dry cleaning.

*Fabrics and vinyls can only be used on certain furniture subject to the manufacturers guidelines for use. There may also be additional charges for these fabrics.
