Carpets with antiviral and antimicrobial properties

For those of you looking to increase health protection from the floor up, danfloor's innovative carpet yarn treatment, which demonstrates antiviral and antimicrobial properties, is applied to a number of our products and offers an ideal flooring solution for your working or living environment.

Getting to work straight away, the Bi-OME technology attracts the microorganisms in any droplets that hit the floor and starts to break them down immediately, achieving a 4 log reduction of 99.99% in bugs and bacteria, including the ones that cause MRSA, E-Coli and C-DIFF. 

We are also pleased to announce that the Bi-OME treatment has recently been tested on enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 which is within the same family of viruses as COVID-19, and has demonstrated that it enhances the deactivation of viruses, on textile products.

The revolutionary BI-OME® technology guarantees optimum active freshness and hygiene for textile products, even after intensive and frequent commercial cleaning. BI-OME® is based on a non-migrating permanent coating on the carpet fibres which is specially designed to deactivate microorganisms.

 

Carpet plays a key role in the interior design of a care environment. Carpets have many therapeutic benefits and have actually been proven to be quicker and less expensive to clean than hard flooring options.

The Danfloor products which contain our innovative antimicrobial yarn treatment include the Equinox, Economix and Evolution Collections which are specifically manufactured for the Healthcare sector and full details can be found online at www.danfloor.co.uk
