A healthy environment in which to function, work and live starts with the right material. Pfleiderer offers solutions for health protection that can be implemented, depending on the application.
Bacteria, germs, and viruses on the surfaces of furniture and interior fittings pose a real risk of infection. Surfaces must be cleaned regularly with sometimes aggressive agents, particularly in areas with a high number of visitors or with specific hygiene requirements. Pfleiderer has therefore developed surfaces that can help reduce the risk of transmission or infection and make an important contribution towards health protection.
Pfleiderer hygiene products are available in two levels, depending on the requirement.
- Classic Antimicrobial Surface
Pfleiderer classic HPL and DecoBoard products have an antimicrobial surface that boosts hygiene protection. This means they reduce 99.9% of all bacteria and germs that come into contact with the surface within 24 hours. Their effectiveness is classified in accordance with JIS Z 2801 / ISO 22196 and documented in independent test procedures.
- MicroPLUS® Surface
The innovative microPLUS® surface is available for selected products and sets new standards for health protection with wood-based materials: It provides significantly faster antimicrobial protection within 7 hours and is also able to reduce enveloped viruses upon contact with the surface, even the most recent coronavirus. This property is unique to Pfleiderer, and enables users to implement unique concepts in situations that require the highest standards of health protection.
How the microPlus® Integrated Protection Works
The standard antimicrobial products have the same properties and the same selection of design options as other products from Pfleiderer. In practice, this means:
- Full selection of decor and structures from the DST system
- All the options of the Pfleiderer Individual digital printing process
- Standard format selection and availability
- Unchanged product and processing properties (fire protection, damp environments, IMO certification, etc.)
