Antibacterial office furniture

Antibacterial office furniture is increasingly popular. The pre-treated and easy clean surfaces reduce the risk of germs passing between colleagues, visitors and patients.

In many offices and workplaces, furniture is used by lots of different people every day. Contact with surfaces can result in bacteria and viruses being transmitted from one person to another.

The term "antibacterial" is heavily regulated. Fabrics marketed as "antibacterial" must meet rigorous criteria as well as being both non-toxic to the consumer and to the environment. They must demonstrate this compliance with government specifications through approved third-party testing.

So far, some tests on antibacterial fabrics, coverings and upholstery have shown promising results in killing coronavirus.

While we know the antibacterial products listed above are effective against a wide range of nasties, it’s still prudent to implement effective cleaning and infection control procedures as you normally would to combat the spread of COVID-19.
