SALTO Systems, in partnership with BioCote has incorporated antimicrobial silver ion technology in its smart electronic lock range, electronic cylinders, locker locks and supporting devices, such as wall readers. The addition of BioCote’s antimicrobial technology helps reduce microbes on product surfaces and improves hygienic building environments and ultimately creates a cleaner environment for both users and visitors. BioCote has successfully tested against a feline strain of coronavirus, showing a reduction of 90 percent in two hours, which is a positive indicator of the antiviral properties of their technology. Previous testing has revealed that BioCote delivers 99.9 percent, 24/7 protection against an array of microbes including Influenza A H1N1, E. coli, Salmonella, and antibiotic-resistant CRE, VRE, and MRSA. BioCote cannot be wiped or worn away and hence enhances hygiene management and reduces the possibility of cross-contamination. The finish is long-lasting and maintains its antimicrobial performance over the expected lifetime of the escutcheon.
