Essentially Endurocide® untreated disposable curtains are an economical solution for healthcare areas which have high patient turnover or areas in which the disposable curtains may become easily visibly soiled. Due to the nature of polypropylene and the fact that the curtains are designed to be disposable, Endurocide® Untreated Curtains should be removed after up to 3 months of use in-situ, or earlier if visibly soiled.

Cleaning & Exposure
It is not advised to clean any QSD Endurocide® untreated disposable curtains by any mechanical means. When any of the disposable curtains become visibly soiled they should be replaced. It is advised that Endurocide® Untreated Curtains are not placed in areas where they are exposed to prolonged direct sunlight. The polypropylene material the disposable curtains are made from is not UV resistant and may suffer accelerated ageing as a result. This will lead to a loss in tensile strength and elasticity of the curtains. This will become visible as “pilling”. This is caused by the fibres in the polypropylene becoming brittle with UV exposure and coming loose from the main fibre chains and breaking down.
Disposing Endurocide® Disposable Curtains
All Endurocide® Disposable Curtains are manufactured from 100% recyclable polypropylene. However, as the curtains are designed to come in contact with potential hospital pathogens. QSD would recommend that after use, Endurocide® Disposable Curtains be disposed of as hospital waste or in accordance with local regulations. For those customers concerned with the whole life span of their products, there is the possibility of incinerating the curtains after use for their calorific value. Polypropylene has a high calorific value and one full width curtain could potentially generate enough energy to light a standard light bulb for an hour and a half.
