Ground-breaking antibacterial coating helps Codelocks products fight against COVID-19
Codelocks products are now available with Clean by Codelocks, a durable finish that cuts bacterial growth on locks and door handles by over 99.9%.
Codelocks releases Clean by Codelocks*, a photocatalytic coating that has been proven capable of eliminating the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (COVID-19) within minutes. The clear, durable coating reduces bacterial growth on any surface it is applied to and can be applied to any lock product in the Codelocks range.
Clean by Codelocks is resistant to chemical cleaners and is designed to complement, rather than replace, existing sanitisation procedures. It works by a process called photocatalytic oxidation. The ISO certified* coating reacts with light and converts harmful bacteria and germs into a non-toxic compound, resulting in a clean and hygienic surface.
Colin Campbell, Managing Director at Codelocks said: "Businesses need to do all they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19 - including using new technology. The new nano-tech finish, Clean by Codelocks, has been shown to reduce bacterial growth by over 99.9% and provides an additional measure of protection over sanitisation. Customers can opt for the new finish with any of Codelocks lock solutions.
"We're expecting this coating to be popular with businesses and organisations that will benefit from an extra level of protection against Coronavirus - including education and healthcare environments, offices, shops and restaurants."
Clean by Codelocks is available with all Codelocks lock products and should be used in conjunction with existing cleaning and sanitisation processes. Customers visiting the Codelocks website are able to opt for the new coating simply by ticking a checkbox next to the chosen product.
