Antimicrobial coatings

for the ultimate in hygienic surface protection.

Antimicrobial Coatings

anti-microbial surface protectionFor the ultimate in hygienic surface protection, where total hygiene is of paramount importance, for example within health authorities, food industry, veterinary care, milking parlours, refuse, cleansing, transport, etc. we have a silver based bacteria inhibiting anti microbial coating.

The application and uses for our antimicrobial coatings are endless; whatever your hygiene protection requirement GLS Coatings can provide the solution.

For example, our antimicrobial flooring system provides protection against most common bacteria and fungi that come into contact with the floor, including Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella choleraesuis and Listeria welshimer.

England was the first country in the world to have a nationally funded, centrally co-ordinated campaign on hand-hygiene, but the Clean Your Hands campaign was closed down in 2010.

The hygiene in UK hospitals has been under the microscope for some time, with the emphasis on prevention, particularly with MRSA and Clostridium difficile, or C diff.

But don't think that, just because a health professional is wearing rubber gloves, you are safe from being infected – far from it: In the first study of its kind, over 100 gloves were tested on a ward at Dunedin Hospital. The researcher, Dr Heather Brooks, said around half the gloves were contaminated with skin bacteria, which can lead to outbreaks of the Norovirus.

Dr Brooks observed, "This was proof that, as our healthcare staff reached into the box, they were contaminating the other gloves with their own bacteria."

Dr Brooks concluded, "Maybe they didn't wash their hands after going to the toilet."

The most recent research has demonstrated that MRSA and other hard-to-treat infections are spread by non-sterile surfaces. And the best deterrent against the spread of infection comes in the form of an antimicrobial barrier.

That is why GLS Coatings' antimicrobial specialist coatings are being increasingly specified by Local Health Authorities for operating theatres, ward and corridor floors, where total hygiene is of paramount importance.

GLS Coatings' Anti-microbial flooring system provides protection against most common bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Escherichia coli, Salmonella choleraesuis and Listeria welshimer.

Our antimicrobial coatings are also being specified for ambulance interiors, including their floors and other surfaces, to prevent the spread of infection through surface contact.

GLS Coatings' antimicrobial coatings can be found where infection-control are also being used in the food industry, for veterinary care, milking parlours, refuse, cleansing, transport, all benefitting from our silver-based bacteria inhibiting anti-microbial coating.

The application and uses for our anti-microbial coatings are endless; whatever your hygiene protection requirement GLS Coatings can provide the solution.
