2008 Nightingale Award Winners
Patterned PVC-Free Upholstery Collection by C.F. Stinson
The first of its kind PVC-Free Upholstery Collection was introduced at the NeoCon World Trade Fair in Chicago in 2008, where it was honored with a “Best of NeoCon” Award for New Healthcare Fabrics. The collection is comprised of three patterns (Hoopla, Eclipse, and Flutter), which are offered in an array of colors.
Manufactured in the United States using patent-pending technology, the Patterned PVC-Free Upholstery Collection is soft to the touch, exceeds 400,000 double rubs, and can be disinfected using bleach solutions. The new collection also includes an antimicrobial system that is nonleaching, permanent, and will not wash off or abrade off over time.
The Patterned PVC-Free Collection is comprised predominantly of recycled materials (80%) with 100% recycled polyester backing and produced using water-based inks. These fabrics can contribute to LEED CI credits under various sections of the LEED Certification documentation and process. For more information, visit http://www.cfstinson.com.
