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 a day. Surfaces can quickly become re-contaminated throughout the service day of the vehicle, leading to the spread of harmful germs and pathogens, particularly to vulnerable persons, and those with low immunity.

Treatment of surfaces with a permanently active Zonitise antimicrobial coating which reduces the microbial load on a continuous basis is a proven gift of science for maximizing and maintaining the highest hygiene levels.

Research has shown that Zonitise antimicrobial coatings can consistently reduce microbial load on surfaces by more than 90% compared to surfaces cleaned traditionally. Furthermore – backed by a 1-year warranty of efficacy – you can have the peace of mind, that your surfaces are always fighting those invisible enemies – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
