We provide specialist infection prevention and personnel protection within the built environment, through our EnviroGuard Programme, with expertise spanning across corporate, commercial, retail, public facilities and healthcare environments.
The foundation of the EnviroGuard programme utilises antimicrobial protection technology to treat both touch surfaces and hands, providing a double protective barrier, eliminating bacteria and viruses
Unlike alcohol-based hand sanitisers and cleaning chemicals, which are only active when initially applied, the EnviroGuard Germfree24 hand sanitiser and Microbe Shield keep on working to eliminate germs, providing constant active disinfection and infection protection.
As the first line of defence in cross-contamination and infection, The EnviroGuard programme eliminates germs from treated surfaces and hands. Our aim is to protect people everywhere.
The EnviroGuard programme can support the safe and responsible return of personnel to the workplace, with full assurance of a safe, clean, sustainably managed environment.
Protecting People Everywhere
The EnviroGuard Programme is founded on the application of a proprietary antimicrobial and treatment process to modify touch surfaces. Designed to provide a permanent barrier, prevent cross contamination and mitigate the risk of infection transmission.
Inanimate environmental surfaces (fomites) are the primary route of transmission to hands. Similarly, hands are the primary cause of contamination of touch surfaces.
EnviroGuard eliminates harmful micro-organisms from both surfaces and hands
EnviroGuard Microbe Shield Antimicrobial Transformation
When applied to a surface, the Zoono Microbe Shield transforms the surface with a mono-molecular protective layer that permanently bonds to the surface.
These molecules are antimicrobial, silane based polymers that covalently bond to the surface providing a barrier of positively charged microscopic pins formed by the polymer's molecular structure.
Negatively charged microorganisms are attracted to the surface. On contact, the cell walls of the microbes are ruptured with lethal effect.
The Germfree24 hand sanitizer formula contains the same Microbe Shield technology to provide up to 24 hours Germfree hand protection from microbial contamination between regular hand hygiene opportunities.
Dermatologically tested, the Germfree24 hand sanitizer is safe, gentle on skin and remains active after normal hand washing or alcohol hand rub routines.
