Fit For Purpose Furniture

Crown Furniture recognise the importance of fit for purpose furniture and the increasing demands on aged care operators to maintain a clean, safe and more hygienic environment for residents, staff, and family.

As we approach the cold season, especially in the wake of a global pandemic, the wider community are increasingly aware of the vulnerability of our elderly residents and the spread of infection in aged care facilities.

With this in mind and our commitment to continuous improvement, we have introduced a new innovative coating to assist with the task of infection control.

 

New Coating System

ANTIMICROBIAL LACQUER

Having partnered with an Australian commercial coating specialist, Crown Furniture now protects all timber product using a new polyurethane coating that contains an antimicrobial additive. This provides effective 24/7 resistance to the growth of bacteria on the polished surfaces.

The active ingredient in the coating is Silver. For centuries Silver has been used in its pure form as a natural antimicrobial surface to prevent the growth & spread of bacteria.

This antimicrobial coating additive has been independently tested for antimicrobial efficiency. The tests were carried out by reputable European laboratories to conform to the highest globally recognised standards.

 

3 Modes of Action

THE ANTIMICROBIAL SILVER ADDITIVE TO THE LACQUER WORKS IN 3 DISTINCT ACTIONS:
  • Silver additive binds to the cell wall, preventing growth of bacteria
  • Silver additive ions interrupt enzyme production, stopping the cell producing energy
  • Silver additive interrupts the cell DNA, preventing cell replication

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leaders in seniors living & healthcare furniture

Whilst this new coating may inhibit the growth of bacteria and reduces levels of cross contamination, it does not reduce the obligation and requirement of facilities to maintain a regular cleaning program. This is just the next advancement for the market leaders in the seniors living industry.
