Environmentally-conscious, non-fluorinated technology for durable, water repellent fabrics

Sunbrella Contract continues in its commitment to the environment in creating a non-fluorinated alternative for fabrics, so you can design beautiful healthcare and commercial spaces. Whether the project is designing waiting rooms, senior living residences, doctor offices, or dining rooms, Sunbrella Assure delivers protection against water-based stains without the use of fluorine. Sunbrella Assure can give designers peace of mind that they are contributing towards a healthy and sustainable space for places that need an extra touch of care. 

Sunbrella Contract fabrics with Sunbrella Assure are available through our partners, CF Stinson, Maharam, and Standard Textile. In 2019, C.F. Stinson won the Nightingale Gold Award for the Balance Collection featuring Sunbrella® Assure. The Nightingale Awards are presented by Healthcare Design magazine in partnership with The Center for Health Design and the HEALTHCARE DESIGN EXPO + CONFERENCE. Balance featuring Sunbrella® Assure is the healthcare industry’s first textile collection that includes Sunbrella Assure non-fluorinated technology, and comes in 43 total color options and six patterns.

Non-fluorinated Stain Resistance

Sunbrella Assure’s proprietary formula combats the absorption of water-based spills and messes from the start without the use of fluorochemicals, offering a safer more sustainable alternative. Sunbrella Assure is not resistant to oil-based stains but can be cleaned easily following our care and cleaning guide.

Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) Compliant

Meets HHI goals for safer, healthier environments while giving commercial designers more sustainable alternatives for healthcare projects. Healthier Hospitals strives to motivate healthcare organizations to commit to goals of integrating more sustainable practices through collaborative initiatives.
