Ultima Displays, one of Europe’s leading one-stop visual communications providers, has unveiled a self-sanitising stretch fabric which opens the door to fabric displays across retail, exhibition, conference and events. The inherent self-sanitising properties means that the graphic remains germs and microbes resistant without the need to wipe clean.

Tension graphic displays are the mainstay of the industry, with Ultima leading the way with Modulate, its innovative magnetic displays and Formulate tubular systems, both of which will benefit from the new treated textile. To compliment the Stretch fabric a Display Polyester version is also available for use with a variety of wall mounted or freestanding TFS frames.

Stringent tests have been carried out to ensure the treated textile with the HeiQ Viroblock technology has a strong antimicrobial efficacy demonstrated by ISO 20743 and ISO18184. The technology is EU REACH compliant and certified as safe, as all its ingredients are cosmetic grade, bio-based (72 per cent bio-based carbon) and recycled.

The treated textile can be cleaned if graphics become dirty by gently washing at 60 degrees Celsius for up to 30 washes, without effecting the antimicrobial properties.

The HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 technology is a patent pending technology and is also Oekotex certified, ZDHC and bluesign homologised. The HeiQ Viroblock NPJ03 technology has been tested to be 99.99 per cent effective within 30 minutes against SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 causing virus and is designed to inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria and enveloped viruses on textile surfaces. Its antiviral and antibacterial properties are due to a unique combination of silver and vesicle technologies designed to significantly reduce viral and bacterial infectivity on treated surfaces.

“Our industry has been badly affected with the pandemic and we have seen our customers and dealers’ businesses suffer,” said Mark McCleery, managing director at Ultima Displays. “The treated stretch textile with the HeiQ Viroblock technology is a game changer for the industry, as it opens the door to fabric displays across retail, exhibition, conference and events. The inherent self-sanitising properties means that the graphic remains germs and microbes resistant without the need to wipe clean.”

This development comes only a month after Ultima unveiled a brightly coloured multi-height sanitising unit specifically designed to be fun, friendly, and durable to help children – aged 3 – 11, engage proactively with hygiene practices as school life returns to normal.
