Ofita launches the first Zero Covid office tables with a coating with viricidal, bactericidal and fungicidal properties, which prevents the spread of Covid by contact with surfaces. It will avoid contagion for periods exceeding two years under correct maintenance conditions.
The effect is permanent as long as the coating remains on the treated surface and the care and cleaning is with neutral soaps. No need to use disinfectants or products that are aggressive to the environment.
Ofita, the first with Zero Covid office tables
The company Umbrella Technologies, a firm dedicated to the design and manufacture of products based on nanotechnology, is the developer of this coating. Its effectiveness is certified by Virnostica, from the Carlos III Health Institute.
It has been tested with SARS COV 2 strains and an efficiency of 99.99%.
Office surfaces that prevent coronavirus
Ofita has the exclusivity of this product in Spain and France. “The Zero Covid desks are a unique milestone in the challenge of achieving safer offices against the coronavirus. For this reason, we are extremely satisfied to be able to offer our customers a solution capable of creating a barrier effect. It cancels the viral load that it may have and prevents it from spreading even if the virus is deposited on it on a recurring basis”, says Camilo Agromayor, General Director of Ofita. “This protection is a guarantee of greater security both in individual workstations and – and especially – in common spaces, such as meeting tables shared by different people”, he adds.
Ofita’s Zero Covid tables have a surface treatment with viricidal and bactericidal properties, which destroys both Sars Cov2- type viruses and E. coli- type bacteria. It consists of a half-micron thick layer that is fixed on the material, with a bioactive agent -silver nanoparticles among others- which, when in contact with a bacterium, virus or fungus, pierces the cell membrane and kills it quickly.
In addition, the high performance of Ofita’s Zero Covid tables stands out. “With a single application, it will lower the cost of implementing hygiene and control measures in public spaces and reduce costs in companies, since it reduces the need for care and maintenance of materials. It permanently ensures a surface protected against the COVID19 and other possible infections”, according to Camilo Agromayor.
Zero Covid office tables with non-migration and food contact certificate
Umbrella Zero also has the non-migration and food contact certificate under the European Council Resolution CM / Res (2013) 9 on Metals and Alloys used in Food Contact Materials and Articles as well as FDA Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), in tests performed by the reference laboratory and with additional technical resources of Intertek in Hong Kong.
