Sure-Chek®: Antimicrobial Healthcare Fabrics
Sure-Chek® brand medical fabrics from Herculite® are the original healthcare fabrics patented for protective covering fabrics in medical environments. Developed in cooperation with healthcare professionals, Sure-Chek® fabrics incorporate a proprietary antimicrobial additive. This controlled release feature effectively allows the antimicrobial agent to migrate to the fabric surface for the product's life. The antimicrobial agent helps protect the fabric from microbial attack and reduces undesirable organic odors providing surface protection that is comfortable, safe, durable, and effective for use in health care facilities, acute care, long-term care, correctional facilities, camps, dormitories and rehabilitation centers.

Benefits of Sure-Chek Fabrics
Herculite’s unique approach to engineering composite textile solutions specifically to our customers design requirements helps our customers to maximize their ROI.
Sure-Chek® healthcare fabrics incorporate a proprietary antimicrobial additive to help protect the fabric from microbial attack and reduces undesirable organic odors.
Easy to clean and disinfect
Sure-Chek® fabrics resist staining from most medications, oils, grease and contaminants. A simple solution of neutral soap and lukewarm water is all that is required for cleaning Sure-Chek healthcare fabrics.
With our fabric being manufactured in the USA we maintain a extremely high level of quality, responsiveness, and design flexibility for our customer partners.
All Sure-Chek® healthcare fabrics are fluid and moisture resistant, reducing the risk of contamination of the mattress interior from liquids or bodily fluids.
All Sure-Chek® healthcare fabrics are flame resistant and self- extinguish when a source flame is removed. These products are manufactured and tested in accordance with accepted industry standards.
Sure-Chek® fabrics have been treated to resist bacterial odors. Objectionable organic odors are decreased as a result of the active protection against odor-forming bacterial growth on fabric surfaces.
REACH and RoHS Compliant
Sure-Chek healthcare fabrics are certified to be free of volatile organic compounds with no off-gassing, making them safe to use in sensitive environments.
Antimicrobials and Fabrics
When it comes to specialty fabrics and the use of antimicrobial features, it’s important to understand that including a pathogen fighting layer of defense prolongs the life of the textile and protects the fabric surface from microbes.
Choosing the Right Healthcare Fabrics
The use of high quality medical textiles is important when producing medical equipment. For medical equipment manufacturers finding a medical textile company that understands the nuances of the healthcare industry and can provide excellent customer service and high quality fabrics is essential.
Unique Challenges in Healthcare
In institutional settings, getting sleep systems right is even more important to ensure patients, students, inmates, or residents are properly supported given their unique medical needs. The fabric you select for those sleep systems is one the most crucial aspects of achieving successful outcomes.
Our mission is to help our customers grow their business by delivering products and services of exceptional value distinguished by their quality and innovation on time, every day. In return our customers reward us with the privilege of being their solution provider. Simple.
