To ensure the pressure relieving properties of your chair are working to their full potential we highly recommend the use of Dartex on all user contact surfaces. Dartex is a strong, multi stretch, vapour permeable fabric which is simple to wipe clean and truly complements the pressure relief incorporated into our chairs. This waterproof material is available in three different colours.
