GRATNELLS ANTIMICROBIAL TRAYS AND CARTS

Gratnells has been producing antimicrobial trays in the UK for the medical sector for years. In these extraordinary times, Gratnells is increasing production to help ensure the safety of schools, offices, and home environments.We are now making available our medical-grade carts to those who need to ensure surfaces stay sanitary and healthy.

The antimicrobial finish on our carts is proven to reduce micro organisms, such as bacteria, mold and fungi as well as the influenza A H1N1 virus by up to 99.99% on protected surfaces. Our special anti-microbial BioCote chemical is also mixed in with the durable tray materials to provide the same level of protection to our anti-microbial trays.

ABOUT THE BIOCOTE ADDITIVE

Gratnells antimicrobial products incorporate BioCote® germ-resistant technology into trays, carts and frames as part of the manufacturing process. This technology is based on globally trusted silver ion additives proven to be effective against a wide range of bacteria, mold and viruses, including superbugs MRSA and E.coli, and viruses like H1N1 influenza.

BioCote additives are introduced to products during the manufacturing process to provide built-in protection against the effects of microbes for the product lifetime.
