Healthcare facilities face similar challenges :
- Improving efficiencies and ensuring patient safety
Many hospitals specifically mention improving efficiencies as a key challenge and ensuring patient safety as their main focus.
- Multiresistant bacteria
It is a well known fact that there is an increasing threat from multiresistant bacteria and that surgical site infections are very expensive for hospitals and society in general.
- Surgical site infections
In spite of high hygiene and asepsis standards, there are approximately three million healthcare-associated infections in the European Union each year. Not all of these infections are critical to the patient but they are all critical in the sense that they are painful for the individual and consume valuable hospital resources.
Some call it impermeable drapes.We call it optimal safety.
BROCHE NONWOVENS are dedicated to infection control in and around the o perating room. We have always taken great pride in supplying healthcare facilities, all around the world, with products and solutions to ensure patient safety. Impermeable materials are always the safest choice, which is why BROCHE NONWOVENS has made the entire drape product range from impermeable.
Why Impermeable ( Laminated ) Drapes?
When introduced, the fluid repellent single- use surgical drapes represented a real breakthrough in fabric technology. This material has served the global healthcare industry well, but as technology advances, we can now offer materials better suited to meet today’s requirements.
Fluid Repellent Surgical Drapes
Impermeable ( Laminated ) Surgical Drapes
Fluid repellent surgical drapes are vulnerable to liquid penetration despite meeting the standard EN13795. Today we know that fluid strikethrough can create a pathway for microorganisms, which can result in surgical site infections.
The wet bacterial penetration test shows that bacteria pass through a fluid repellent drape after 15 minutes of testing.The impermeable drape from BROCHE NONWOVENS showed no penetration of liquid and bacteria at all.
The safest draping material is impermeable
BROCHE NONWOVENS range of impermeable drapes covers all types of surgical interventions. The range is available in 1–4 ply materials, depending on the needs of the specific procedure.
Why BROCHE NONWOVENS surgical drapes?
BROCHE NONWOVENS is dedicated to infection control. Overall improvements in design and material are part of the continuous work to always offer the safest choice.

- Introduction of new solutions when procedural needs change
- Supply and logistics system to ensure that the right products are available at the right time, spending a minimum of your resources.
Types of BROCHE Nonwovens Fabrics
Two-Layered Drape Materials
Perfect for many applications, they are the result of the combination of a low-linting nonwoven or tissue paper with high absorbing properties with an impervious film acting as a liquid barrier.
Absorbent Reinforcement Material for Critical Zones
BROCHE has developed a three-layered material specifically designed to enhance the absorption of liquids in critical zones.
Three-Layered Drape Materials
Capable of trapping liquid quickly and effectively, they are designed to be placed in direct contact with the skin of the patient and can be used for multiple purposes such as surgical drapes and kits.
