BE.SAFE - The surface with antimicrobial effect
Viruses, bacteria and fungi find extremely clever ways to get from one person to another. Transmission can occur not only through the air or through direct physical contact, but also by adhering to surfaces that are touched by many people. This happens in everyday situations, for example at reception desks in shops and hotels, at tables or counters in bars and restaurants, but also in places such as daycare centres, schools or retirement homes.
Every year, countless people fall ill with viral and bacterial infections. In addition to the observance of hygiene measures, the surface quality of interior design elements also plays an increasingly important role in systematically addressing the problem. Surfaces that actively prevent the spread of viruses, bacteria and fungi can make an important contribution here.
First furniture surface with antimicrobial effect worldwide
Until now, only antibacterial surfaces were available on the wood materials market. The newly developed BE.SAFE surface from SWISS KRONO with its triple protection is effective against viruses, bacteria and fungi for the first time. For this innovation, SWISS KRONO has collaborated with a company that is considered a pioneer in the development of materials and surfaces with antimicrobial properties.
The additive used attacks the membranes of viruses, bacteria and fungi and thus eliminates any pathogens. Since the additive acts physically and is integrated into the product, it does not lose its effect and therefore offers lasting protection throughout the product life cycle.
