While the world continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, our leaders have begun searching for solutions to slow the spread and prevent future outbreaks. It is widely assumed that the pandemic has begun to peak, however, there are still lingering concerns about how humanity can remain safe as it transitions into a changed world. Many businesses have already implemented new regulations and safety standards that encourage social distancing or add additional layers of protection for their employees and customers. Applications such as cashier safety shields, floor graphics, safety partitions, and face shields have all helped reduce the spread of disease. But rather than relying on these applications alone, the focus has shifted towards ensuring anti-microbial solutions are implemented in the next phase of protection.
Benefits of Anti-Microbial Solutions
In order to be considered anti-microbial, a product must include an agent that kills or reduces the spread of microorganisms. Solutions like these are imperative in environments where sterilization is vital to help reduce the spread of bacteria and disease, such as in hospitals or medical centers, public transportation, food processing plants and more. Furthermore, advances in anti-microbial technology has allowed these products to be more durable with less maintenance. These products are designed to withstand the intense cleaning and sterilization methods that are often demanded, leading to a longer product life. Many of our anti-microbial products are also FDA approved, USDA approved, and /or 3A-Dairy compliant to ensure the materials meet the requirements of each industry.
