WHAT ARE FLUID-PROOF AND FLUID-RESISTANT FABRICS OR VINYLS? WHAT ARE PERFORMANCE FABRICS? WHAT IS CRYPTON?
We offer a variety of fabrics that will protect furniture and mattresses from fluid issues. Fluid-resistant and fluid-proof fabrics and vinyls will not only protect your furniture investment but will also aid in the safety and comfort of guests and residents.
Fluid-Proof options include upholstery-grade vinyls that are soft and supple and available in a wide range of colors and patterns.
Fluid-Resistant options include specially treated fabrics that add fluid barriers to woven fabrics. There are a variety of brand names for these barrier treatments including Crypton and Durablock. These treatments not only provide a fluid barrier they also offer anti-fungal and anti-microbial protection. Fabrics treated with fluid barriers are almost impervious to fluids but can be compromised if spills are not cleaned in a timely manner.
