With over 12 percent of the population suffering from asthma and 40 percent from allergies, Warwick’s HealthGuard™ range of fabrics has been developed to help Australians make better lifestyle choices in their furniture coverings.
With revolutionary HealthGuard™, Warwick has introduced a new generation of high performance fabrics specifically developed for long-term protection against the house dust mite, mould and bacteria while maintaining an odour-free surface.
Proven and tested by Monash University’s Department of Microbiology and boasting worldwide quality assurance (including prestigious Oeko-Tex international registration); HealthGuard™ is odour-free and specially developed to reduce dust mites which can trigger respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies and even eczema symptoms.
The National Asthma Council Australia has implemented the Sensitive Choice program, symbolized by the butterfly logo, to help consumers make informed choices about products that may help reduce asthma and allergy triggers. In March 2007, Warwick HealthGuard™ fabrics Macrosuede™, Macro-soft, Macro-hide, Macquarie, Macarthur, Miranda and Tritan® ranges all received acceptance to the Sensitive Choice program.
