FABRICS FOR THE NEW NORMAL
Morbern marine coated fabrics are treated with biocidal active substances to inhibit the growth of microbes such as bacteria and viruses. The smooth, non-porous and durable surface of coated fabrics is highly resistant to scratches and cracks, where microbes may thrive. In addition, their high cleanability promotes good maintenance practices by simplifying disinfection methods.
All Morbern coated fabrics are resistant to bleach – the principal disinfection agent recommended by the ECDC for covid-19 preventative cleaning – and can also be disinfected using alcohol-based products such as Hydrogen Peroxide and Isopropyl Alcohol, without any risk of fading or deterioration over time.
TURNING DESIGN DREAMS INTO REALITY
The state-of-the-art digital print technology, showcased by Americana, offers the ultimate solution for customised, thematic projects or branded decor environments - infinite pattern and colour combinations to turn your design dreams into high-resolution reality. Morbern has perfected the durability of printed vinyl, achieving a 300,000 cycles Martindale abrasion - much more than any other digitally printed product on the market - and excellent bleach resistance for enhanced cleanability.
COMMITTED TO A GREENER FUTURE
From our phthalate-free production in Canada, where continuous sustainability initiatives have already underpinned our environmental promises, to our ambitious plans for greater and greener achievements, Morbern's ethos is one of total commitment to the planet: help protect and preserve our children's tomorrows while meeting our clients' needs today.
In recent years, Morbern had been pioneering the development of chemical-free flame retardant fabrics in North America with its MorGreen™ collection. These products take advantage of PVC’s inherent fire-resistant properties, so no additives are needed. Despite this, the material comply with the EN1021 (Parts 1 & 2) European fire standards and California 117 fire safety law in the USA, with IMO MED accreditation to follow in the near future.
