After an uncertain start to the year we are happy to announce that we have been awarded Most Innovative Clothing Identification…
Before inventing the Fixxon system, we identified that in every care home there would be bags and rails overflowing with jumbled lost property. Some homes even had a whole room dedicated to storing unlabelled clothing.
Home managers reported that items going missing was the most common cause for complaint in their homes; and asked for a method of identifying clothing that could withstand the industrial laundry.
The challenge was to invent a system of labelling that would be quick and easy to attach, durable and discreet, and most importantly comfortable on the often delicate skin of the user.
Existing button systems were reported to be scratchy and bulky, so Fixxon worked with design engineers, manufacturers, and patent lawyers to develop the only button labelling system with a completely smooth finish, and available in six different colours.
Since rolling out the Fixxon system across many of the largest (and smallest!) care groups in the UK, we consistently receive positive reports from managers and housekeepers of how we have transformed their laundry service.
The success of the system has resulted in a massive reduction of clothing loss and complaints, and has helped to preserve resident’s comfort and dignity.
We are proud to say Fixxon Ltd is a Welsh company with the buttons being manufactured in South Wales and now the South West of England.
To help us direct you, please select whether you are looking at Fixxon for individual use, or on behalf of a care home.
Before we installed the system, 20 to 30 items a day were being lost. After using Fixxon this has gone down to just 1 item in the last week. Residents and families were visibly upset by the problems with laundry, and Fixxon has completely sorted it out.
The Fixxon system has reduced our loss of laundry by 99.9%. I am personally highly delighted with the system.
Have had the system for about a year, good relationship with Fixxon, Very cost effective, re-usable and durable, really happy with how well the system is working in the home and being a dementia care home the tags are not being pulled off by residents like alternative Labelling products. Reduced the loss of laundry.
Helps the home when clothes do get tagged, preventing laundry going missing.
Can check clothes easier with less going missing.
The Fixxon systems helps quite a lot. We receive the buttons very quickly and we would recommend this system to other homes.
We wouldn’t want to use any other labelling system.
We have been using the Fixxon labelling system at Green Tree Court since our opening in October 2014. We find it a simple and effective system to label resident clothes and personal items (including slings etc.) The buttons are easy to attach and detach and are inconspicuous if attached properly. The staff are confident in the Fixxon system and the feedback from residents and their families…
I think you have an excellent system and, if used correctly, it works very well overall. We have hardly any ‘unknown’ items coming through. It has most certainly improved the running of the laundry greatly, from times gone by…
We definitely recommend Fixxon as it has made the process of naming a lot easier and has been a huge help in the prevention of lost/mixed up clothes.
We find the Fixxon system easy to use and has really improved the laundry. Would highly recommend the product to other care homes.
I would be more than happy to recommend the Fixxon button system! We have been using the system for the last 3 years since we opened and it’s the most economic I’ve used since I started working in care 22 years ago. There is no messing about with time consuming sewing, and they don’t come…
Fantastic product! Really turned our care homes around regarding laundry and lost property.
The system has been revolutionary, it has made the whole laundry process so much more efficient. We used to get rails and rails of lost property, but now we don’t get hardly any! I would strongly recommend it, well worth the investment!
We have recently introduced the Fixxon system and we are really happy with it.
I would like to thank you for your very prompt service when we purchased the Fixxon tags for the residents at St Josephs and also the time you took to explain how to use them. Also your after service has been brilliant. Thank you once again
Identifying residents’ clothes has always been a big challenge for us. Since introducing the Fixxon labelling system, sorting laundry has become quick and easy. Residents are much happier now their clothes are not getting lost.
I’m really pleased with the buttons.I don’t even notice them, and my clothes aren’t getting lost any more.
