The close proximity of children, their poor hygiene practices and the extended periods of time spent in the classroom create the perfect environment for microbes, such as bacteria, to pass quickly and easily between pupils. This can often result in bacterial infections, causing absenteeism, interrupting learning and costing the economy.
Antimicrobial products and surfaces in the school classroom are an easy way to complement existing cleaning practices to increase the hygiene of the environment. BioCote® antimicrobial technology 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- whereby pupil absenteeism due to sickness decreased by a staggering 20%.
BioCote® protected products in the school classroom are an easy and logical way to complement the standard cleaning practices needed to meet strict hygiene guidelines for schools around the world. So, not only do antimicrobial products make a school cleaner, they also immediately suggest that a school that cares about cleanliness also cares about their pupils.
