A Project to Supply 250 Extra Beds for Coronavirus Patients: An Effort by Maastricht University Hospital and Europlaid.

Maastricht University Hospital

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Hospitals all over the world are operating at stretched capacity. Beds for coronavirus patients to lie on to heal have ran out. To prepare for an even greater influx of patients, the University Hospital in Maastricht (MUMC) has extended emergency shelter in the MECC Convention Centre.

The owner of this project, Europlaid along with MUMC has worked tirelessly to make this emergency shelter happen. This shelter will have 250 extra beds to care for patients who require basic nursing care.

Europlaid acquired the fabrics used to make the hospital beds from Bru Textile in Belgium. The fabrics supplied by Bru are of the highest standard in both safety and quality. There are not limited to catering to only residential, commercial and hospitality for interior aesthetics. The fabrics are reliable and responsible in that it does not use any harmful or toxic chemical dyes, treatment or processes. Hence, they are also most suited in the most sterile places like hospitals. Air molecules that are released into the air from the fabrics, whether it is generated by heat or cold are non-hazardous to human health, and thereby causing no respiratory stress to patients.
The texture of the material are produced with human comfort in mind, for the comfort of patients, therefore no matter what the fabric material is, the touch-feel is always real-fabric softness. Other characteristic embodied are anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-odor, anti-mildew and water/liquid repellant, with stain free technology in some collections, which are supremely friendly fabric bed traits to any clinics, pediatrics and hospitals or old folks care around the world.

It is embedded in the DNA of all of Bru Textile fabrics to be Oekotex-100 certified and for each to have undergone consistent laboratory test to surpass the ISO standard. The fabric collection used to make the 250 hospital beds for Maastricht University Hospital is Blockbuster 03 Aluminum from the brand name FR-One – inherently a fire-retardant fabric, which complies with all FR standards worldwide.
