PrionTex (Pty) Ltd is a leading South African specialist medical textile company founded in 2001 and supplies over 100 hospitals nationally with high-quality drapes, gowns and procedure packs.

The company was established to address the risks of ineffective protection and high linting that cotton introduces in the theatre environment. Our surgical gowns and patient drapes are made from technical textiles that compare with the best in the world and are certified according to the highest international standards.

  • Cut hospital costs by outsourcing theatre linen and sterilisation tasks;
  • Improve comfort and client satisfaction with a greatly reduced risk of infection;

  • Offer a cost-effective upgrade from cotton with great ease of use;

  • Be extremely low linting, thus reducing risk of infection;

  • Achieve operational efficiencies, resulting in benefits far in excess of the cost of the Priontex solution; and

Our manufacturing plants are in Midrand, Gauteng and Wynberg, Cape Town. We supply procedure-specific sterile reusable linen packs and instrument sets designed for ease of use, resulting in increased patient and clinician comfort.
