Throughout many industries Australia was not prepared to handle a global pandemic like COVID-19, and the majority of healthcare facilities are most certainly among them.
Antimicrobial surfaces have been in use for a while now and the COVID-19 pandemic has brought the desire for these technologies on surfaces to the forefront of almost everyone’s mind. Healthcare organisations are constantly looking to deliver the best care to patients and their visiting families and friends. With this comes a responsibility of the teams of designers and architects, who create the infrastructure and interiors with these health issues as a key focus.
We believe the answer to that question is our extensive range of Chemically Resistant and Anti-bacterial HPL surfaces. These offer protection from pathogens and bacteria by using BioCote and MicroPlus technologies that prevent up to 99.9% of germs from developing.
You can read more about our products Anti-bacterial properties in our Lamicolor, Duropal and Cleaf HPL Laminates in Infection Control and Prevention post from last year.
Lamicolor and Cleaf High Pressure Laminates feature BioCote technology. This technology is an effective antimicrobial treatment using the natural properties of silver. It even has a 99.99% effectiveness against the H1N1 virus; and recently showed it reduced a feline Coronavirus strain, Munich, by 90% over 2 hours!
MicroPlus technology, used on our Duropal High Pressure Laminates has a 99% effective rate against microbes as well.
Whether you use Lamicolor, Duropal or Cleaf High-Pressure Laminate products, you can be assured that these surfaces will effectively reduce microbes over the lifetime of the product.
In addition to Anti-Bacterial and Chemical Resistance our High-Pressure Laminates offer many more benefits making it easy for you to consider for your projects. See our Product Features here.
