The antimicrobial surface for all living spaces: BE.SAFE

Health and safety are more important than ever today: in your own four walls, at work and in your free time. With SWISS KRONO’s antimicrobial BE.SAFE surface, you offer your customers safety and ensure a integral sense of well-being.

Viruses and bacteria find extremely sophisticated ways to get from one person to the next. Transmission can occur not only through the air or direct physical contact, but also by sticking to surfaces that are touched by many people. This happens in everyday situations, for example, at reception desks in shops and hotels, at tables or counters in bars and restaurants and even in places like day-care facilities, schools and retirement homes.

Countless people fall ill with viral and bacterial infections every year. In addition to compliance with hygiene measures, the surface properties of interior design elements are playing an increasingly important role in systematically countering the problem. Surfaces that actively prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria can make an important contribution in this respect.

Did you know?

Antimicrobial surfaces are effective against a broad spectrum of microbes – an antibacterial surface only against bacteria.

Protection for your safety

World’s first furniture surface with antimicrobial effect

  • Active 2-fold protection against viruses and bacteria
  • 24/7 effect since the active ingredient is retained during the product life cycle
  • Worry-free safety because the antimicrobial active ingredient is integrated in the product
  • Tested, confirmed and certified by the Hohenstein Institute

Until now, antibacterial surfaces were only available on the wood-based materials market. Thanks to its 2-fold protection, the newly developed BE.SAFE surface from SWISS KRONO is effective against viruses and bacteria for the first time. For this innovation, SWISS KRONO collaborated with a company that is considered a pioneer in developing materials and surfaces with antimicrobial properties.

The additive used attacks the membranes of viruses and bacteria, in doing so eliminating any pathogens. Since the additive has a physical effect and is integrated into the product, it does not lose its effect, therefore providing lasting protection throughout the product life cycle. The product’s antimicrobial property was tested, confirmed and certified by the Hohenstein Institute. All furniture decor in the ONE WORLD collection is available with the BE.SAFE antimicrobial surface upon request.
