Safe Life FZC, a new breed of healthcare distributors based in the United Arab Emirates, is employing the latest technology to combat dangerous outbreaks like the deadly Coronavirus or MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). So it’s no surprise that it is attempting to break the cycle of transmission by adopting self-cleaning NanoSeptic surfaces for use throughout hospitals, hotels, shopping centres and schools.
The NanoSeptic self-cleaning products include facility touch points such as door push pads and handle wraps, portable mats for counters, tray tables and bathroom vanities, and custom products like grocery cart and public transportation grab-handle wraps.
“When you are talking about a virus that has a 50% mortality rate and is spreading internationally, we need to attack the problem on multiple fronts,” says Dr Ahmed Elawadi, President of Safe Life. “Not only do NanoSeptic surfaces help to inhibit the chance of Coronavirus transmission through surface contact and cross-contamination, but it works on all other bacteria, viruses and fungi.”
Independent lab tests conducted with the human Coronavirus show that the NanoSeptic surface kills 99.96% of viruses deposited on a surface in 30 minutes. The same tests showed that after 30 minutes, 56% of the virus was still alive on a stainless steel surface — a common material for door push plates and handles, and almost 20% was still alive after four hours. And unlike sanitisers and disinfectants which are one-time kills, the NanoSeptic surface is always ‘on’, constantly trapping and killing microbes 24/7.
