Maintenance of Trevira CS and Polyester FR curtains

We recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat are supplied bearing a maintenance label.

Normal use – private interiors, hotels, institutions
Maximum 40ºC, mild process, load as little as possible, lowest spinning speed.

Hang drying.

Ironing may be necessary using medium temperature.

Shrinkage is likely to be about 1% in the length provided that no other information is given on our sample material or on www.kvadrat.dk. It is possible to wash the textile at higher temperatures. However, it is not necessary with normal use.

Heavy use – healthcare sector
Maximum 60ºC, mild process, load as little as possible, lowest spinning speed.

Hang drying.

Ironing will typically be necessary for fabrics washed at 60ºC using medium temperature. Shrinkage is likely to be about 1% in the length provided that no other information is given on our sample material or on www.kvadrat.dk. It is possible to disinfect the fabric at 60ºC by adding appropriate chemicals.




Extreme use – healthcare sector, hospitals

It is possible to wash the curtains at 60ºC or higher in order to disinfect the textile. The national Serum Institute recommends the following:

10 minutes at 80ºC
3 minutes at 85ºC
1 minute at 90ºC

We recommend doing test washings with curtains at your laundry since the processes of washing, drying and ironing can vary from laundry to laundry.

Certain designs are only washable at 30ºC or 40ºC.

The textile’s appearance after washing depends on the washing method, temperature, amount of water used per amount of textiles, spinning and drying method.

In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants.

Our advice is a recommendation only. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
