Top-quality materials guaranteed

The upholstery of Novak M tables is made of high-quality imitation leather, which is ensured by our suppliers Ferrari, France and ATN International, Germany. In addition to fire and water resistance, the leather is also highly resistant to blood, urine, disinfectants, salt water, UV rays, microorganisms and mold.

How to retain the appearance of the new upholstery

We recommend to care for the upholstery of your examination, massage and therapy tables regularly. This way you can prevent leather from cracking, stains and extend its life span.

Protect the upholstery

Cover the padded top of your massage or therapy table before treatment with a sheet, towel or paper from the paper roll holder. The latter can be mounted under the head or leg section and with some models at the table’s base. Also, a PVC cover for the leg section is available to additionally protect the upholstery in case patients do not take their shoes off.

Regular cleaning

To preserve fabric’s new appearance for as long as possible, we recommend to clean the upholstery of your massage or therapy table regularly. Use a mixture of soap and water and wipe with a microfiber cloth. For more stubborn marks wash it with a soft brush or sponge. The water shouldn’t have more than 50°C and the mixture should not include more than 10% of soap. Then rinse with clean water and leave it to dry off. Blood stains and residues of massage oils and lotions could leave stains, therefore they should be removed as soon as possible. Use cold water for blood stains and PH-neutral soap for oils. Be careful not to use detergents, abrasives, strong soap, bleach or scouring agents not to damage the upholstery.


Before disinfection, clean the table’s padded top and let it dry completely. After the use of disinfectant, wipe with a clean wet cloth. For additional information on disinfectants approved by manufacturer, contact our sales team or your dealer.
