Key PRODUCTS AND SERVICES:

Anti-microbial, self-sanitizing nano coatings

for all surfaces.

This effective self-sanitizing nano-coating works through contact killing mechanism and remains active on surface for a minimum of 90 days if not damaged mechanically. 

The water borne thin film coating keeps surfaces free from microbes like virus, bacteria and other pathogens. The coating disinfects the surface itself by neutralising microbes and minimises colonisation of microorganisms. It has low surface energy and is easy to clean.

 

Action mechanism:

 

The action mechanism of the Nano coating is based on a combination of cationic silver ions and QUAT technology.

  • AgNPs inhibit the replication of virus nucleotidest. They bind to electron donor groups such as Sulfur, Oxygen, and Nitrogen commonly found in enzymes within the microbe. This causes the enzymes to be denatured thus effectively incapacitating the energy source of the cell and the microbe quickly dies.

  • The cationic silver (Ag+) and QUATs work to inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) by interacting with its surface (spike) protein S based on its charge like it works in HIV, Hepatitis viruses, etc.

Summary of Key features 

 

  • Water borne thin film protection against virus & bacteria 

  • Provides 99.9% germ protection up to 90 days 

  • Contains effective Nano materials with no cytotoxicity 

  • Self-Sanitization avoids requirement of regular disinfection 

  • Recommended for all surfaces like walls, metal, wood, plastic, glass, fabrics, leather, tiles etc.

Anti-microbial nano coatings for Air-conditioning filters.

The water-borne breathable anti-microbial nano coating for HVAC filters protects against micro-organisms like viruses, bacteria mould, fungi and yeasts and conforms to global standards JIS L 1902 and AATCC 100. Applied in HVAC filters, Air filters and Air purifiers, the nano coating also helps with odour reduction.

Contactless toilet systems and doors.

Contactless systems help reduce the chance of virus spread. This is especially important for toilets where the chances of pathogen spread are higher. Door handles 

  • Our Contactless toilet solutions include sensor-based systems such as automatic soap dispensers, hand driers and basin mixers etc.

  • We provide App-based implementation of maintenance and sanitisation procedures that can be easily tracked, to ensure that norms are being strictly followed, through our sanitisation tech partners.

  • Sliding doors reduce multi-person contact with door handles, and are an effective way to reduce pathogen spread.

HVAC compartmentalisation strategies.

Effective HVAC design strategies than control pathogen spread. These include compartmentalisation as well as the use of Local-Exhaust Ventilation systems (LEVs) for industrial or large open office settings. LEVs are essentially mechanical air exhausts which pull the air from an area and disperse it outside.

  • HEPA Filters can capture pathogens many times smaller than the Coronavirus. Used in combination with the nano coating, these offr effective protection.

  • A combination of split, ducted, cassette, AHU and VRV based systems helps compartmentalise air, instead of one or two large AHUs which lead to an increase in recirculated air - the new mantra will be fewer chillers with central AHUs.

  • The injection of treated fresh air can be increased for quicker replacement of office air.

Interior layout strategies.

These following are some design strategies can be applied to make your office safer. We would be happy to advise you further on these - please get in touch.

  • Distancing-optimal workstation sizing, spacing and layout, keeping in mind psychological needs, safety and comfort.

  • Workstation numbers after factoring in remote working considerations.

  • Introducing elegant, transparent, taller partitions, and glass sheilds at reception areas.

  • Circulation layouts that minimise 2-way crossover.

  • Increased signage and wayfinding.

  • Redesigning existing layouts to introduce more cabins.

  • Increased hot-desking to support remote employees when in office.

  • Introduction of contactless systems such as automatic sliding doors and other sensor-based solutions.

  • Sensor controller LED lights to minimise touching of switches.
