SOMERSET, NJ – March 1, 2022 /MANCHESTER MILLS/ Manchester Mills is enhancing its portfolio of solutions products for the hospitality and health care industries.
The manufacturer – a Guest Worldwide company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Sysco Corporation – has unveiled a line of shower curtains with built-in antimicrobial product protection, expanding on the reception to its Protect360° range of innovative textile solutions.
Microban antimicrobial technology is built into the Protect360° shower curtain and its liner to inhibit odors and the growth of damaging bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus.
Bart Kennedy, senior director of business development – global textiles from Microban, explained: “The new Protect360° shower curtains are unmatched in their quality and integrate rigorous antimicrobial protection with aesthetically engineered textiles, putting customers’ cleanliness needs at the forefront.”
In a recent survey conducted by Microban, 85% of hotel guests said they consider the cleanliness of shower curtains and liners very important when staying at a hotel – yet shower curtains and liners are perceived as one of the dirtiest items in a hotel room. Microban antimicrobial technology works continuously to keep the shower curtain cleaner and fresher in between washes.
Elizabeth McNulty, senior vice president and general manager at Manchester Mills, commented: “At Manchester Mills, our goal is to develop innovative textile solutions that provide a cleaner experience and increase consumer confidence. Building on our successful Protect360° lineup to include shower curtains and liners with Microban antimicrobial protection is the perfect textile solution to meet the needs of the hospitality and healthcare industries.”
Protect360° shower curtains are also water repellent, allowing for quick drying time. Ultrasonic hems with magnets keep the shower curtain in place, while hook-free rings promote easy installation. The products are available in neutral colors, with design options that range from solid, textured fabrics with decorative accents to classic patterns.
