Our new Touch Anti-Microbial Coating will help to keep the touchable surfaces in your lifts more hygienic for staff, customers and visitors. This virtually invisible coating is suitable for application on-site. This makes this system the first of its kind providing high levels of long term anti-microbial protection.
We think it’s brilliant for hygiene. But if you’re still to be convinced, let’s delve into the detail…
What is Anti-microbial?
Anti-microbial is simply the term used to describe something that has the ability to resist the growth of microbes. While the term ‘anti-bacterial’ refers only to bacteria, anti-microbial refers to a wider range of organisms, including bacteria, moulds, fungi and others. The anti-microbial technology is incorporated into our coating at the time of manufacture. Once incorporated, the anti-microbial additives provide continuous, built-in, anti-microbial protection for the expected lifetime of the product. The silver ions on the surface of a material treated with the coating, bind with microbes that come into contact with the surface, disrupting their normal cell function, which stops them from reproducing, thus resulting in the death of the cell.
Lift Parts Coated With Our New TOUCH Anti-Microbial Coating
Exhibit a reduction in bacteria by up to 99.99%
Even antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA, VRE and CRE cannot survive.
Effective against viruses
Our Anti-microbial Coating technology is proven to deactivate the H1N1 influenza virus.
Easier to keep hygienically clean
Thanks to our TOUCH Anti-Microbial Coating, your product will have long term, round the-clock protection against unseen microbes, permanently.
A cleaner product means that there less microbes to transfer, ultimately reducing the potential for cross contamination.
Lasting protection from bacteria and mould
When applied professionally, our TOUCH Anti-Microbial Coating will not wash off, meaning it will last for the product’s lifetime.
Extended functional lifetime
Our Anti-microbial Coating offers long term surface protection against microbial colonisation and also minimises material degradation, ultimately extending the lifetime of the product.
Safe to use in a variety of environments
The supply of the right antimicrobial additive means your TOUCH Anti-Microbial protected product can be used as it always has been without risk or concern.
How the silver in the coating works
As well as being anti-microbial, silver is also a fungicidal, reduces mite growth, has anti-odour properties and is non-allergenic.
Our Anti-Microbial Coating for Lifts is ultra thin and flexible
We have 2 coatings. One for metal (including stainless steel) and one for all surfaces:
This ultra thin coating is virtually invisible with an average thickness of only 5 microns is the hardest of the coating range, with a scratch resistance of H7 to H8 on the HB Pencil Scale
In comparison, granite, is H6, making our coating 2 two points harder. Despite this, it still remains flexible enough to cope with the expansion and contraction of the substrate.
All Hard Surfaces Protection
This slightly thicker coating at around 12 microns is virtually invisible. With a scratch resistance of H5 on the HB Pencil Scale
In comparison, copper, is H4, making the coating two points harder. Despite this, it still remains flexible enough to cope with the expansion and contraction of the substrate.
