Avican Support Ltd owns a group of residential care homes and Creative Surface Protection supplied and fitted PureZone antimicrobial film. The laminate film, containing silver ions which reduces coronavirus presence by 95% after a contact of 15 minutes, and nearly 99.9% after a contact of one hour, has been applied to door handles, toilet seats, light switches, kitchen handles and tables in the care homes. The film also has an ISO accreditation for effectiveness up to 99.99% against E Coli, Listeria, MRSA and Salmonella, with a tested useful life of up to 5 years.
Charles James MD of Avican commented that “Covid-19 has been a horror faced by many people worldwide. For businesses in the healthcare sector such as ours, basic infection control systems just did not go far enough for protecting the people in our care. The recent installation of the Pure Zone antibacterial surface film was however a game changer in our fight against this terrible disease. It has gone a very long way in offering reassurance to the people who live within our care facilities as well as their families and commissioners. This has simply been a lifesaver!”
