With drapilux the GHA extends its membership to include textiles with intelligent functions. The materials from drapilux protect in the event of fire, reduce noise levels, neutralise odours and protect against bacteria. In this way drapilux materials actively improve the indoor climate and contribute to safety.
Innovative fabrics “Made in Germany” with intelligent functions flammstop, air, bioactive, acoustics and drapilux all in one
‘drapilux bioaktiv’, for example, attacks the cell of the bacterium and thereby kills it. The effectiveness – without being harmful to health on contact with the skin – has been scientifically proven. This makes ‘drapilux bioaktiv’ the optimum support for employees in the healthcare sector and for people with weak immune systems or a weakened age.
‘drapilux all in one’ combines this function with the neutralisation of bad odours and thus offers optimum functionality for the healthcare sector.
The drapilux fabrics are already being used in hospitals in Belgium, Germany, Finland, Ireland, Jordan, Namibia, Portugal and Saudi Arabia. But also in old people’s and nursing homes and on ships.
drapilux, a brand of Schmitz Textiles GmbH Co.KG, has been a member of the GHA since summer 2019. The subsidiary of Schmitz-Werke founded in 2018 with the brands drapilux, swela and mobiltex produces exclusively in Germany at the location Emsdetten, Münsterland. “With the three brands drapilux, swela and mobiltex, the family business with 280 employees is optimally positioned for the customer segments in the outdoor, healthcare, hospitality and mobile sectors,” explains Markus Overbeck, Marketing Director Schmitz Textiles GmbH + Co KG.
Research and development takes place in-house with open innovation, i.e. exchange with universities and external partners. International sales are carried out by trade and industry partners with a focus on Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
“We are convinced networkers and know from experience that you can actually achieve more together than alone. With our brand drapilux we have a distinct focus on the healthcare sector, so that we are always looking for sales-oriented networks in order to further develop this business segment,” Overbeck sees the advantages of membership in the GHA.
