Antimicrobial hygiene and protective measures in the office

Upholstery fabrics, removable office
chair covers and handle covers
with HeiQ Viroblock

It is likely we have never felt a greater need to protect ourselves from viruses and bacteria than now. We now offer suitable solutions to ensure that you can be effectively protected from pathogens such as coronavirus in your working environment. The antimicrobial cover sets can be used to retrofit existing swivel chairs and visitor chairs, as well as door handles. If you are planning to acquire new seating solutions, choose chairs already upholstered with antimicrobial materials such as fabrics and meshes with HeiQ Viroblock.

HeiQ Viroblock fabric technology

At a glance

  • This HeiQ Viroblock fabric technology protects the product against microbes and germs.
  • Contains a biocide (active ingredient: silver chloride) on the basis of recycled silver salt.
  • HeiQ Viroblock is a unique combination of advanced silver technology and vesicle technology as a booster.
  • Silver releases silver ions and therefore inhibits the adhesion of bacteria to fabric surfaces. The vesicle technology destroys the virus membrane so that the silver can attack the core of the virus more efficiently and more quickly.
  • The effectiveness of the HeiQ Viroblock technology against SARS-CoV-2 has been tested* in a laboratory.
  • HeiQ Viroblock technology is hyperallergenic and our textiles are OEKO-TEX certified.
  • *Data provided by HeiQ based on tests conducted on other materials.

Together against COVID-19

Our contribution

Social distancing and reducing contact are the most important measures when combating the coronavirus and COVID-19, the lung disease it leads to. But products that protect against infection or destroy pathogens also make an important contribution. That is why, as a furniture manufacturer, we have made it our task to also develop effective solutions to contain the pandemic in our area of expertise.

SUSTAINABILITY

PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST

Working and living conditions form an inseparable entity for us. We therefore see it as our task to be active players in keeping the balance in the world: social, economic, cultural and ecological. We want to leave our children and grandchildren with an environment that is economically, ecologically and socially intact. To do this, we work with children, youths and elderly people as well as those with disabilities. With innovative products in the area of our Active Sitting Solution, we want to make a tangible contribution to the health of people by guaranteeing dynamic sitting habits.
