The UK’s education sector is benefiting from Hillcross Hygiene’s innovative sanitising technology, which ensures protection against viruses and other harmful bacteria for longer.

The coronavirus pandemic has really brought home the crucial role a clean environment plays in protecting our health. Schools, nurseries and colleges alike remain open throughout the England-wide month-long lockdown. Keeping these facilities clean, hygienic and safe will remain a top priority to safeguard communities and combat the spread of Covid-19.

Educational institutions can discover Hillcross Hygiene’s Antimicrobial Protective Coating, a high-level disinfectant that kills micro-organisms by simultaneously attacking multiple microbial structures and components, destroying bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.

The safe, cost-effective treatment can be applied to virtually any surface to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, providing protection for up to 90 days. It is fragrance-free, chlorine-free, alcohol-free, non-corrosive, non-irritant, non-toxic and has excellent material compatibility.

The technology for the Anti-microbial Protective Coating has been proven effective against SARS and other droplet-based viruses. It is based on the use of quaternary ammonium silicone compounds (“SiQAC”) as antimicrobial agents, either in solvent or in aqueous and stable solutions. When the ammonium salts react with certain organosilanes, they form an integrated system, and when this system is applied to any surface, it forms an invisible and durable antimicrobial protection.

Hillcross Hygiene’s Antimicrobial Protective Coating offers ongoing, long-term protection that is ideal for use in food courts or toilets, as well as other high-traffic areas. The team of hygiene experts recommend monthly applications to ensure round-the-clock protection.

For specific areas such as touch points – door handles, light switches and desks – the company suggests the enhanced protection of Nano Ceramic Coating, which offers long-lasting coating of up to five years.

Upon completion of the application process, Hillcross Hygiene provides the premises with a sticker that shows the date of application and 90-day protection certification.

Hillcross Hygiene offers unparalleled surface protection using revolutionary products, whether it’s for your vehicle, home, business or facility. The company’s bespoke, cost-effective sanitising solutions – available short-term and long-term – support the standards of hygiene across all sectors, including education, residential, commercial, retail, hospitality, and public transport.

The business has a strong, proactive agenda. The team are always looking at new products and implementing them once they are verified, to help fight existing viruses and provide a head start on preventing the spread of harmful bacteria.
