Good hygiene is in your hands

Altro has been investigating the reliability of biocides for three years, and we’ve received the results of testing conducted by independent university researchers.

Examples of their findings:
  • People have minimal exposure to microbes on floors and walls, and their hands are a key source of contamination and spread of infection and transfer microbes on to surfaces 
  • Bacteria that grew on the surface of wall cladding, whether the surface treated with a biocide or not, was negligible 
  • Biocides need moisture to activate, and don’t do so quickly enough to prevent bacteria transfer from one surface to another
We support the use of impervious surfaces in hygienic environments to prevent microbial ingress and spread; and using a thorough cleaning regime to keep people safe and healthy.

Remember, good hygiene is in your hands.
