REHAU health.protect surfaces and 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.

The REHAU health.protect portfolio: edgebands and surfaces

BE.SAFE - the antimicrobial surface for all living spaces

The melamine-coated board innovation from SWISS KRONO consists of a triple multi-layer structure. A specially developed additive is added during the impregnation of the paper. This additive is anchored in the melamine resin and so in the surface using a special technology. The additive acts like a disinfectant and renders viruses, bacteria and fungi harmless.

BE.SAFE is therefore perfectly suited for applications in public and highly frequented areas.

To match the antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial function of the board collection, we have suitable antimicrobial edgebands in our range. The 9 decors including the health-protect function are available in our express collection - as usual from a minimum order quantity of 1 m and a delivery time of 24 hours.
