Investing in wipeable furniture has become more significant over the past few months. The main benefit is undoubtedly the ability to easily clean it, something that can be hard to do effectively with fabric-covered furniture.
Our versatile range of wipeable soft seating includes three ranges, Around the Town, Palm Print, and Black and White which include SteriTouch®, an antimicrobial found in the PVC coating of the products.
What is SteriTouch®?
The inclusion of SteriTouch®, an antimicrobial included in the PVC coating of our furniture ranges, offers additional protection against bacteria, biofilm, fungi and mould. SteriTouch® works by eradicating bacteria which causes contamination and infection, as well as bacteria that can cause bad smells and stains.
The antimicrobial effect can also protect the material against degradation, giving it a durability and helping it to last longer. Especially useful in a school, nursery or childminder setting!
SteriTouch® & COVID-19
Coronavirus is known as an 'enveloped virus', as a result of its fatty outer membrane. SteriTouch® has been successfully tested against similar “enveloped viruses”, such as Influenza. This means it would be reasonable to suggest that SteriTouch® would also be effective against COVID-19 however official stage testing against the virus is not possible at this time.
For further understanding on the preventive effects SteriTouch® may have on COVID-19, please read this article from SteriTouch® themselves.
