Infection Control

Healthcare professionals are fighting a daily battle to ensure the environments they care for their patients and residents are clean, safe, and germ free. The COVID19 pandemic has created an even bigger emphasis on this and the importance of having effective infection control measures in place.

Germs and bacteria can remain on surfaces for days, invisible to the eye, and highly dangerous. What you touch and where you sit may be contaminated with bacteria, luckily, we have antimicrobial and easy clean seating and furniture solutions, enabling you to provide safe healthcare environments.
