Fight the spread of disease and infection with antimicrobial trolley handle protection film
Did you know Supermarket shopping trolleys have 361 times more bacteria than a toilet or door knob?
¾ of trolleys across a range of stores swabbed by scientists contained extremely harmful bacterial such as E.coli and salmonella. Most shoppers were oblivious to cleanliness when shopping, but the COVID pandemic has made people much more aware.
We are now working with HyLayer who create strong and durable antimicrobial film that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including Coronavirus. Hylayer antimicrobial films have been tested by independent microbiology laboratory to ISO 22196 standards. The film simply gets fitted to trolley handles and works instantly, providing users with a much safer shop. The film is completely clear so branding and advertising on the trolley handle will still be seen.
Why now do retailers need to be more aware and cautious of the safety of their shoppers?
The pandemic has changed many individual’s views of everyday life, such as petrol stations and the unhygienic pump handle, door handles, other people’s cars and of course trolley handles!
We completed our own research in October 2020. After asking 2000 adults a series of questions regarding grocery store cleanliness we found more than half are worried about catching COVID and other illnesses in supermarkets. When choosing a place to shop they consider if the store is advertising and showing that they regularly clean their trolleys and baskets.
38% of shoppers are more likely to return to a store that has been COVID secure throughout the pandemic, even when the pandemic is over. Two thirds of people asked said supermarkets should do more to maintain good hygiene standards and only 7% think that supermarkets have good hygiene practices.
The properties of HyLayer antimicrobial film products work 24/7, and even between additional cleaning schedules. It is also easy to maintain and is tarnish resistant. The film continually breaks down potentially hazardous microbes as an added layer to regular cleaning and disinfecting regime. The film sticks to any surface and is certified to continually kill 99.9% of bacteria, including COVID19. The film is completely clear so any branding or advertising on the trolley handle will still be visible. With the film you will receive an information sticker to put onto the trolley handle which will advertise to customers that the trolley has been made secure, this will result in improved customer loyalty.
