Upholstery and colours

Here at VELA, we have an in-house padding workshop, where we produce seats, backrests and padded accessories. We make all of our padded parts in flame-retardant and highly cleanable materials, and the wear resistance is at a minimum of 35,000 Martindale. We choose quality materials so that all our padded parts can last for many years, even when using the chair daily.

You clean it with warm water and a neutral cleaning agent (use a soft cloth). Disinfection is possible using 70-85% surgical alcohol and chlorine disinfectant (active chlorine at 1000-1200 ppm). After cleaning/disinfection, you must rinse it repeatedly, using cool, clean water, and lastly, it must be dried with a clean, wrung out cloth.
