BeGard™ Hamper Bag
BeGard™ – the main options for BeGard™ bags are elastic and printing. A majority of users get their BeGard™ bags with elastic in the top to make sure they do not slide off a stand. But a good number of users think this is unnecessary.
Since BeGard™ bags are waterproof, they are mainly used when it is important that there is no leakage. So, many users have biohazard or other logos screened in brighter colors on the bags.
Use BeGard™ bags where 100% fluid repellency is required.
BeGard™ fabric is an 8 oz. per square yard, vinyl coated, polyester fabric that is impervious to fluids.
Note: Fabric will remain fluid impervious for approximately 100 washes.

The type of fabric you use depends on 3 things:
- How roughly the bags will be treated.
- Whether you want liquid resistance or water repelling.
- What sort of controls you have? Will you lose the bags before they wear out, or do you get the full useful life out of most bags.
There is one other thing to remember: bags are normally made to fit x-stands of one kind or another. These give some, so bags fit snugly, which is good.
However, some stands are circular, triangular, or square. These stands do not give at all, so a normal bag, after normal shrinkage, may end up too small for the stand. Those stands usually require that bags be about 2 inches longer. Those must be specially made and are, therefore, more expensive.
