Connor is an allround talent which is universally useable. It combines a natural wool look and the durability and price advantage of a polyester fabric. The polyester fabric achieves its natural wool apperance by a melange yarn which as a twill weave produces both quiet and contrasting shades. Connor can be used as an upholstery or furnishing fabric and it has a good sound absorption (class B). The above-average lightfastness is graded 5 – 6. A comprehensive colour range (28 colours) enables very fine colour gradations. Especially amongst the natural tones we can find selected shades such as Light Grey, Granite, Walnut, Desert Sand. Typical wool colours such as Deep Forest, Scarlet Red, Deep Lagoon, Burnt Sienna and Autumn Red enlarge and enrich the colour spectrum.
Healthcare/ Clinical Fabrics:
The permanent bio-active functional fabrics by DELIUS offer freshness and hygienic cleanliness. Silver ions which are firmly embedded in the fibre stop the growth of bacteria both within and outside the fibre. They thus protect against infections like MRSA in hospitals. DELICARE fabrics also reduce the formation of odours caused by microbes.
Frequent washing does not reduce the function unlike with normal finishes. This is typical for DELIUS: the function is contained in the yarn and is not subsequently imposed by a finishing process; this also holds true for the flame retardancy.

Flame retardant textiles
According to the relevant norms all textiles delivered by DELIUS are permanently flame retardant. For all furnishing and upholstery fabrics DELIUS uses high quality yarns made from Polyester FR or Trevira CS. Textiles made out of these fibres contain a built-in safety feature. DELIUS textiles offer long-term protection, unlike fabrics which have been subsequently treated with chemicals. This small but relevant difference results from the chemical construction of the polyester fibre: the flame retardant properties are firmly enclosed in the fibre. They cannot be changed by exterior influences.

National and international flame retardancy norms
One is obliged to use flame retardant fabrics in almost all public buildings. These safety regulations, for example, apply to the public areas of hotels, schools, kindergartens, office buildings, caring homes and cinemas.The fire risk in buildings can be lowered substantially by these governmentally prescribed measures. Textiles by DELIUS fulfil the most important flame retardancy norms worldwide.DELIUS cooperates with various laboratories in order to carry out burning tests, in order to issue test reports, to obtain building inspection approvals and to organize certificates. On our Internet site you will find the relevant certificates for every article.
