Disposable Anti-Bacterial Curtains 4.2m Wide


Marlux® universal curtains are manufactured with reinforced eyelets that fit most existing hooks and simply hook onto existing cubicle tracks.

The curtains feature specially designed anti-peel durable labelling enables self-auditing of curtain change policy. Marlux has worked closely with healthcare establishments to ensure that change policies are managed properly and cost-effective results are achieved.

Disposable curtains eliminate the cost and environmental impact of laundering conventional curtains and improve hygiene.

• Manufactured from high quality, durable polypropylene material
• Choice of practical colours
• Non-contaminated curtains can be recycled along with normal plastic waste


Q: How do disposable curtains compare with the cost of using conventional curtains?

A: The use of Marlux disposable curtains provide a cost effective solution to the management of surgery curtains:
• No curtain laundry costs
• No capital outlay for curtains
• No disruption during change of curtains

Q: How often do the curtains need to be changed?

A: This could be done every 6 - 12 months however we would recommend that each surgery carries out its own assessment to set the frequency at which the curtains should be changed in different areas. Each curtain has a self audit label so that you can easily see when it was last changed.

Q: Does the fabric support bacterial growth?

A. No, Marlux Medical is working in partnership with Microban. Microban technology provides an additional level of protection against bacterial growth and serves to underpin existing hygiene measures within healthcare facilities. As Microban protection is built into the polymer structure of the non-woven fabric at the point of manufacture, the antibacterial active is evenly distributed throughout the whole curtain.

Q: How are the curtains labelled?

A: Each printed label carries a unique batch number to identify the original raw material, date of production and test results for each curtain. This process allows full traceability and peace of mind.

Q: Are the disposable curtains made from environmentally friendly fabric?

A: Yes. The Marlux disposable curtains are made from 100% polypropylene which has one of the lowest environmental impacts of any material - synthetic or traditional.

Q: Do you supply the curtain tracks?

A: No we dont, however if you contact us via web chat or call the sales team we can forward on your enquiry.

Q: How many curtain hooks are required for each curtain size?

A: There are 28 hooks required for a 4.2 curtain, the 7.2 curtain requires 48 hooks and the 1.8 curtain requires 12 hooks.
