Keeping Staff Safe in the Office 

A recent survey showed that more than 60% of workers are concerned that the air in their workplaces and offices is polluted.  The Occupational Health & Safety Magazine stated in an article on this survey that ‘with such a high number of people concerned about indoor air quality, it is important to think how it might affect prospective workers’. Business leaders should not overlook the importance of indoor air quality.  Clean and pure air will always be a key factor to help keep your staff safe from the spread of... Read More

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEPA AND MERV FILTRATION FOR FACILITIES

One major step towards significantly improving indoor air quality is the upgrading of a building’s HVAC and filter to one that is rated at MERV 13 level or higher. MERV stands for ‘minimum efficiency reporting value’, and a MERV 13 filter is effective at capturing more than 75% of particles sized 0.3 to 1 microns which means it is reasonably effective against mould spores, bacteria and smoke.  However, the Sars Cov 2 virus and Influenza particle size is around 0.1 microns, so whilst a MERV 14 filter is definitely a...

CDC STUDY PROVES THAT HEPA AIR FILTRATION CAN HELP REDUCE COVID TRANSMISSION BY NEARLY 50% IN THE REAL WORLD.

CDC STUDY PROVES THAT HEPA AIR FILTRATION CAN HELP REDUCE COVID TRANSMISSION BY NEARLY 50% IN THE REAL WORLD. There has been little dispute that HEPA filters are extremely effective at removing viral particles such as Covid 19 from the air.  However, we now have real world proof that HEPA filters actually significantly reduce the transmission of Covid 19 thanks to a recent CDC study of schools. The CDC study reported on Covid 19 infections in 123 primary schools.  They compared schools that 1) Did nothing 2) used HEPA filters,... Read More

Why antimicrobial coatings are a game changer for infection control in healthcare settings.

Why antimicrobial coatings are a game changer for infection control in healthcare settings MRSA, C Dif, Norovirus, VRE….. the infections that no doctor or nurse wants to happen under their watch. Hospital Acquired Infections cost the global healthcare system £Billions and hundreds of thousands of lives. And yet there is a way to prevent a significant amount of these deaths happening…. Even with rigorous cleaning regimes in place, it has been proven that admission to a room previously occupied by a patient infected by MRSA, VRE, or C. difficile is a significant... Read More

What can antimicrobial coatings do for public transport?

What can antimicrobial coatings do for public transport? Studies in the UK have demonstrated an increase of respiratory infections (colds and flu) to persons if they had ridden in a bus or taxi five days previously (Troko et al., 2011). Whilst surface disinfecting is a reactive method proven to eliminate contamination, unfortunately, surfaces have to be disinfected on such a regular basis to be effective it is not realistic or sustainable. This is especially difficult in mass transportation when large numbers of individuals may be using the same vehicle in... Read More

Reduce Sickness Absence in Schools and in the Workplace.

Reduce Sickness Absence in Schools and in the Workplace. Over 141 million days are lost in the UK to sickness and injury, costing businesses around £12BN every year in sick pay.  In schools around the country, teacher absences amount to hundreds of thousands of days, with the associated costs of getting in supply teachers. Most common office and school bugs are the common cold or norovirus, both of which are commonly spread on surfaces. By treating those surfaces with a constantly active Zonitise antimicrobial coating we have proven that the... Read More

Why antimicrobial coatings are the most cost-effective route to good hygiene 

Why Antimicrobial Coatings are the Most Cost-Effective Route to Good Hygiene Antimicrobial coatings help reduce maintenance costs. When a Zonitise antimicrobial coating is applied on a surface, it helps prevent staining, discolouration, leeching, whilst also preventing mould or fungi growth for in excess of 1 year. By eliminating at the source the bacteria that cause unpleasant odours, it can also save a considerable amount of money on odour masking. Whilst these features are huge cost savers, there is no other successful science-proven method that ensures that a surface is constantly... Read More

Where to apply Antimicrobial Coatings? 

Where to apply Antimicrobial Coatings? There is an increase in the need to protect surfaces from germs and microbes in every facility and public area where people mix. From surfaces and touchpoints to the equipment we use every day, everything is susceptible to harmful micro-organisms multiplying, which ultimately find their way to human beings. A high % of transmission of germs from person to person is on surfaces we come in touch with every day. Door handles, handrails, lift buttons, desks…. The list goes on. It is not physically possible to be... Read More
