The Flexibility of Choice
At Defries we prefer to design drapes in conjunction with Surgeons, Nurses and Theatre Managers. This means we can provide our customers with superior products that match their clinical needs. Drapes are made to specific requirements such as size, fabric, fenestrations and extra details like velcro taping and clear plastic anaesthetic screens.
We find this method more cost effective for our customers with reduced waste.
Choice of fabric is important.
At Defries we use three types of drape fabric:
Azure drapes use a viscose impervious fabric with a polyethylene laminate, suitable for general surgery with minimal fluid or short procedures. This range includes the Azure minor procedure drapes.
Sapphire drapes are our newest drape range available and use a bi-laminate or tri-laminate fabric with extra reinforcement. This range includes heavy duty back table covers, standard back table covers, mayo covers, all procedure drapes and bespoke designed drapes to meet specific customer requirements.
Supreme drapes are made from a tri-laminate fabric. They are specifically designed for high level performance and offer the highest level of protection in our range, coupled with great absorbency from fabric reinforcement around the fenestration, fluid containment with in-built pouches, positioning tape and incise area. The Supreme range includes drape sheets, universal packs and specialty procedure drapes.
Our drape design includes the instructions for correct aseptic application, with markings and directions on the drape to assist ease of use.
All drape fabrics are conformable to patients’ shapes. They are low linting and have excellent barrier properties to prevent strikethrough of airborne and blood borne bacteria, meeting ASTM Standards 1670 & 1671 and exceeding EN13795.
Our wide range of equipment drapes and covers protect operating room equipment whilst creating a barrier to reduce the risk of infection. This includes mayo stand covers, c-arms, ultrasound probes, light handles, microscopes, lead screens, drill sleeves and cameras.
Covers are durable yet lightweight. We can customise Equipment Covers in different designs and sizes to best meet your needs.
