Anti-Microbial Fabrics

At Barons, we use superbug resistant Hygienilac spray routinely on all our upholstered furniture frames and on the edgings of our cabinet furniture.

Anti-microbial Hygienilac is non-toxic and toy safe. Selected by Barons because of its rigorous testing and approval by the FDA, HSE EPA, it is BS6250 certified for severed usage and complies with BS EN 71.3. It has been tested by Bodycote Lawlabs and repeatedly been proved to be overwhelmingly effective against a range of bacteria, and by FDAS against C difficile. Hygienilac lacquer has received a point 3 award from the NHS Infection Control Rapid Review Panel (Surface Coating Category).

Quite simply, it kills superbugs. In fact, it is proven to kill 99.9% of almost all species of bacteria, including the deadly MRSA, Salmonella and E. coli, and goes on killing them for the lifetime of the additive for up to ten years.

In addition to our Hygienilac spray lacquer provision, Barons’ extensive fabric ranges offer customers a wide scope of fabulous fabrics with anti-microbial properties from our selected specialist fabric suppliers, proven technologies from reputable manufacturers that support the provision of a health-conscious environment.
