Healthcare Facilities & Isolation Centres

Medical facilities are among the most critically important to our society, and as such, they are constantly frequented by a wide variety of people. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) impact millions of people around the world. We understand that surfaces can become contaminated between cleanings, and in the medical industry, you cannot afford to allow bacteria, mold, or mildew to grow. Patient outcomes and staff safety are of top priorities for hospitals. But harmful microbes such as E. Coli and MRSA make it difficult for medical facilities to protect patients and staff against cross-contamination. Reducing the risk of infection and maintaining sanitary conditions are major challenges as every surface can be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. How do they get there?

  • Patients and visitors bring germs home from day-to-day activities – school, work, play, etc.

  • Healthcare workers forgetting to wash their hands – not 100% compliant with hand hygiene rules

  • Janitorial staff unknowingly spread germs from surface

Good hygiene is imperative in any healthcare setting, whether it is a hospital, operation theatre, care home, or dental practice. iCOV's anti-microbial technology delivers a second line of defense by reducing a broad spectrum of microbes by up to 99.99% and therefore improves hygiene between cleans.

Pharmaceutical & Laboratories

The environment in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Centers and Testing Laboratories are breeding ground for microbes such as bacteria and mold. Poor cleanliness, recirculated air, and the close proximity and interaction between workforce, chemicals, and raw materials (along with unfinished products) can all support the growth and distribution of microbes which can potentially cause material degradation. iCOV's anti-microbial property can help make any environment more clean and effectively more decontaminated than a conventional wall covering solutions.

School & Educational Institutes

The close proximity of children and the extended periods of time spent in the classroom creates the perfect environment for bacteria to pass quickly and easily between pupils. This can often result in bacterial infections that can lead to an increase in absences and a disruption to the learning process. How do these harmful microbes get into schools?

  • Parents, students, and visitors bring germs into the school from day-to-day activities – school, work, play, etc.

  • Students transmit their germs via desks, toys, and other shared resources

  • Janitorial staff unknowingly spread germs from surface

At present, government guidelines recommend regular cleaning to minimize the spread of infection in schools. However, beyond regular cleaning, little consideration has been given to alternate or non-traditional methods for limiting the potential for cross-contamination within the learning environment. iCOV wall coverings for educational institutions are an easy way to complement existing cleaning practices and increase hygiene levels in a school environment. The anti-microbial technology of our wall coverings is effective against a multitude of unpleasant and potentially illness-causing bacteria and it has been proven to work in a real-life school environment.
