Tollos Disposable Curtains are designed to replace your existing reusable curtains in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, day surgeries, medical centres and other health care facilities that require the use of curtains. They offer a cost effective alternative to purchasing and washing reusable curtains and with their proven ability to kill bacteria, they can improve infection control at your facility. They are:

  • Manufactured from 100% polypropylene, non-woven fabric – 120 gsm
  • Fire retardant (AS 2755.2-1985) – Failed to Burn
  • Impregnated with anti-bacterial and anti-mildew chemicals including nanometer silver (curtain and mesh) 
Previous studies have demonstrated that pathogens such as Vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE), methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile are still present on non disposable curtains even after one week post laundering (Ohl,M. et al 2011). Even with steam cleaning, the curtains still remained contaminated (White, L.F; Dancer, S.J; Robertson, C; 2007).
 
Ability to Achieve Significant Cost Reduction
Tollos' line of disposable curtains can result in significant cost savings for your facility.  By switching from reusable curtains to disposable you can save on the following costs:
  • Cost of washing curtains (especially in high infection areas where frequent washing is required)
  • Cost of replacing damaged or worn reusable curtains
  • Cost of inventory control
Also, Tollos disposable curtains are procured for specifically for each area.  Therefore you avoid issues with the wrong reusable curtains being returned from the laundry.

A study performed at 39 bed Emergency Department, at a facility in Australia, found the department would reduce costs by up to 97% over 5 years by switching to disposable curtains.  That is a savings of $469,719!

Test Results

Tollos has undertaken anti-bacterial testing with an Australian-based, NATA approved laboratory. Importantly, the tests were undertaken on the actual T.H.E. Medical Disposable Curtains, not just the chemical themselves.
