Cleanliness of Hands and Surfaces
Play Key Role in Preventing Cross Contamination
Keep your Facilities Safe & Hygienic with
Every day we come into contact with germs including pathogenic bacteria and viruses. Practically everything we touch is certain to have germs on it, some harmless and some not. Pathogens can cause severe illnesses and are easily contracted from surfaces that aren’t adequately cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.
More notable these days are highly contagious pathogenic viruses such as COVID-19 which has an extremely high propensity to spread to large numbers of people via contaminated surfaces and re-infect large numbers of other people.
The Problem: Conventional chemical disinfectants can, to a certain extent, kill and reduce the number of pathogens present, however once the solution dries, any new pathogenic microorganisms re-introduced or not previously killed by the chemical disinfectant can survive and proliferate quickly returning to unsafe, unhygienic levels. Unlike conventional cleaning products, BRShield™ forms a covalent bond to the applied surface and continues to work while in the dry state for a minimun period of 6 months.
All antimicrobials are not created equal. It’s important to understand the basic chemical, physical, and biological properties of an antimicrobial so the best choice can be made. Because of its unique mode of action and inability to migrate from a treated surface, our technology is the obvious choice to minimize environmental contamination and the development of resistant organisms. Our products are safe for the environment, humans, and pets. They are non-dissipating, non-leaching, non-migrating from the applied substrate and cannot be absorbed by micro-organisms or by humans.
Reduce Risks of Cross Contamination with Surface Coating
With more pressure to maintain “safe and hygienic” spaces after employees, clients, customers, visitors, employees and delivery couriers have entered and used them, as well as balancing occupancy and availability requirements, the need for speed and efficiency with cleaning is increasing. As large numbers of occupants and visitors flow through building facilities every day, there is an inherent risk of cross-contamination.
The risk of cross- contamination is increased significantly by the potential, when under pressure, for missed or inadequate “cleaning” to occur. This dilemma presents a compelling need for enhanced cleaning protocols and more specifically a regimen of disinfection and enduring antimicrobial surface protection.
Introducing the next level of Hygiene – Extended Surface Protection against Germs
From the buildings point of entry, reception desks, lifts, elevators, the facilities themselves, or communal washroom and toilet facilities; continued improvements to a buildings cleaning programme can only benefit the health, welfare and overall experience of all the occupants.
Additionally, a clean, safe and hygienic working environment for all employees and visitors provides additional peace of mind and helps build a reputation as a safe and responsible building or facilities manager.
Continuous Self-Disinfecting Antimicrobial Coating Surface
Traditional chemical surface disinfectants have not only proven ineffective, they have actually exacerbated this microbial problem by helping the creation and adaptation of ‘superbugs’ which have become resistant to traditional cleaners and sanitizers.
The Solution: The BR Shield system modifies the surfaces, providing treated surfaces with both immediate disinfection and durable, antimicrobial protection for up to 6 months which can inactivate viruses, kill and inhibit the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria and mold that can survive and even multiply on untreated surfaces.
