Fabric Technology

Here at Keela we use a range of different fabrics for our clothing, from tough and durable fabrics to handle the worst of the weather, to very lightweight and flexible fabrics ideal for use for a range of high-impact activities.

You can read about our main fabrics and the technology behind them at the links below.


- System Dual Protection

System Dual Protection, our unique double layer fabric system, is extensively used in specialist military applications. The tough, durable outer layer ensures it can handle wear and tear while a lightweight inner layer offers comfort and creates the ‘Air Gap’ to build up warmth. Waterproof, breathable and warm, SDP reduces inner condensation to keep the wearer protected.

- ViralOff

ViralOff reduces the viruses present on the treated fabric by 99% within 2 hours.
The active ingredient has been tested against Influenza A, BirdFlu, Norovirus and Corona (SARS) over the years, and in all cases, has achieved 99% levels of reduction.
The ISO18184:2019 is a standard test for the determination of the antiviral activity of textile products in a two-hour timespan, where it has to reduce the virus by 99%, to pass. This test uses viruses of the Influenza A strain.

ViralOff is not intended to prevent disease, it is used for the protection of the treated product.
