What are Anti-Microbial Floors and Walls?
Anti-microbial floors and walls have added formulations to help block microorganisms, such as the growth of bacteria, fungi, and molds. An anti-microbial additive inhibits microbial and fungal growth attack, acting as a permanent bacteriostat and fungistat against a broad range of bacteria and fungi. When added it becomes part of the floor or wall and doesn’t lose its performance properties.
Benefits of Anti-Microbial Floors & Walls
Some industries value anti-microbial floors and walls as a part of stringent efforts to control harmful bacteria within their environments.
Benefit highlights include:
- Inhibiting microbial and fungal growth as part of an organizations' hygiene program
- Increasing protection against harmful bacteria where patients and staff are present or where food and beverage products are being produced
- Promoting clean and sanitary conditions
- Building a reputation as an organization that takes action against contaminants
- Easy installation and permanence within floors and walls. Performance is not lost due to washing or over time. It's also toxicologically safe.
While healthcare and food and beverage companies seek out this extra protection, anti-microbial floors and walls can be useful in any environment where improved hygiene is an advantage.
