Aereos Interior Solutions, a division of global aircraft solutions provider Aereos has integrated long-lasting BioCote antimicrobial technology into its high-touch products including tray tables, toilet shrouds, toilet seats and window shades, and is available with no incremental cost to customers.
According to Aereos, once manufactured into a product, BioCote antimicrobial technology acts in minutes and works continuously for the expected lifetime of the treated product;
Tests carried out by an independent microbiological testing laboratory have certified that Aereos Interior Solutions products containing BioCote technology are greater than 99.8% effective against MRSA and E. coli.
BioCote antimicrobial technology is also certified by HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) International and is approved as food contact safe by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
David Hall, managing director of BioCote, said: “We are proud to be involved in this industry first. BioCote has been active in the transport sector for some time, but our solutions have not been applied to aircraft interiors before. Airlines have recently bolstered their cleaning regimes, but antimicrobial technology provides a second line of defence. Combined with regular cleaning, it provides permanent protection by reducing the levels of microbes on surfaces to deliver the ultimate hygiene solution.”
