Upholstery and window treatment fabric manufacturer Culp Hospitality has launched its next i-Clean finish: i-Clean Barrier Plus. The new fabric finish incorporates chemistry to protect and surround each fabric fiber. An integrated moisture barrier safely seals the fabric and is designed to stay put on heavy-use furniture and softgoods, adding lasting durability.
“The demand for performance fabrics continues to grow in heavy-use environments that require exceptional durability and stain and spill protection,” said David Wells, VP of sales and marketing for the Culp Hospitality and Culp Contract businesses. “This innovative new finish does not change the feel or texture of fabric and is ideally suited for high-risk spill environments including hotel restaurants, bars and public spaces, as well as healthcare offices, patient waiting rooms and commercial cafeterias. The finish is available now on our Warrington Line and will be added to additional collections in 2021.”
Fabrics treated with i-Clean Barrier Plus repel and lock out stains and spills, preventing seepage into underlying furniture fibers and foams, making the pieces easier to clean and extending their length of use. The finish does not use formaldehyde, heavy metals, phenols or phthalates.
