The battle against Hospital Acquired Infections is not waged on British soil alone. It is an international effort which requires multi-national co-operation. Grosvenor Contracts plays its part by managing the manufacturing, logistics, and instalment of its disposable curtains around the world.
Our disposable curtains are available to everyone
Currently, we have trade lines set up for distribution to Brazil, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, China, Bermuda, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Libya, Nigeria, Ghana, Australia, and New Zealand, to name a few.
Because of our enthusiasm for helping foreign countries share in the infection control benefits of our products, our Export Division is now offering a special container price for our international bulk buyers.

Fighting anti-bacterial resistance from the ground up
Grosvenor Contracts does not coat its disposable curtains with harmful biocides – plain and simple.
The world-wide crisis of anti-microbial resistance is taking hold and Grosvenor Contracts are working to counteract this effect by selling curtains which are completely free of biocides.
Here are some of the benefits of purchasing untreated disposable curtains:
1. Polypropylene is an inherently anti-microbial polymer.
This means that without any extra chemical treatment the curtain inherently sheds bacteria it comes into contact with making additives like biocides quite unnecessary.
2. Treated curtains produce a false sense of security.
While biocides kill many bacteria, they will never kill every spore. Hospital staff may be lulled into thinking their curtains are invincible and might skip changes. Also, introducing more biocides into the environment will only add to anti-microbial resistance.
3. Importing treated curtains can be very expensive.
Most foreign customs divisions will take months testing treated curtains before allowing them to enter the country. Furthermore, the costs of these tests will only add to the cost of your import. Some countries (ie: Canada, Sweden, Japan etc.) have even gone so far as to ban Triclosan, a biocide uses in many anti-bacterial products.
4. Untreated, disposable cubicle curtains are 100% polypropylene which make them 100% recyclable.
When polypropylene has not been tainted by biocides, it is safe to reintroduce it to the environment and make economical new polypropylene products.
