REHAU health.protect surfaces & edgebands – because contact is part of life.
We touch thousands of objects every day of our lives. Whether it is a mobile phone, keyboard, tool or steering wheel – interaction forms an integral part of our day-to-day life including in critical environments such as the healthcare, catering industry or public sector. We touch surfaces that have also been used by other people more than 3 x per hour and we also touch our face as often during the same time. The problem: we absorb 30 - 50 % of those organisms, which have been located on the surface, every time we touch it, including bacteria and viruses.
Surfaces are therefore some of the biggest carriers to spread viruses and bacteria because it is simply human to make contact whether it is conscious or unconscious, direct or indirect.
Surface without health.protect: bacteria are unhindered to dock and multiply.
Surface with health.protect: bacteria are prevented from attaching themselves and are subsequently eliminated.
Antibacterial solutions from REHAU
This is precisely where REHAU health.protect surfaces and edgebands from our protect family come into play, which protect you from infections caused by bacteria in day-to-day life.
Because the health.protect protective layer with silver ions makes it impossible for bacteria to attach to the surface. This already destroys more than 99 % of bacteria within 24 hours even at normal humidity.
REHAU health.protect surfaces and edgebands combine effective protection with an appealing look.
Areas of use
Irrespective of whether it is in a hospital, hotel or restaurant: a lot of people meet in a confined space at all of these locations. You prevent contaminated surfaces with REHAU health.protect and consequently ensure more safety for guests, customers and visitors.
Surfaces with health.protect coating
health.protect surface solutions can be found in our RAUVISIO noir, RAUVISIO crystal as well as in the RAUVISIO brilliant family. A special highlight is included in it: you can already order your desired colour as a customised colour match for RAUVISIO crystal from a purchasing quantity of 20 pieces.
Zero joint safety. Because full protection only comes with the right edgeband.
That we think holistically about surfaces is what makes REHAU health.protect solutions so special. This is why our antibacterial surfaces come with the matching edgebands.
Especially the edgebands of the RAUKANTEX pro edgeband line can play out all their advantages: not only do the edgebands look great on the plate due to their sophisticated zero joint optics, compared to common adhesive solutions they also close those joints towards filth and dirt – normally a nesting ground for bacteria.
Zero joint components with RAUVISIO and RAUKANTEX – a real plus when it comes to protection against bacteria.
