In response to industry concerns over improvement of infection control standards, ergoCentric (an LCS supplier) has developed ergoCentric+Guard, a proprietary puncture and tear resistant material that offers a superior level of durability as compared to vinyl.
ergoCentric+Guard can be used on all ergoCentric’s task chairs, stools, waiting area and stackable seating and all laboratory seating and:
- has been independently tested to ten times the strength of vinyl upholstery;
- demonstrates superior puncture and abrasion resistance as compared to vinyl;
- stands up to all cleaning agents used in healthcare, cleanroom and laboratory environments;
- is backed by a ten year warranty, and;
- is available in six color options.
