Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. is now offering multi-surface antimicrobial finishes on more than 50 different tables and carts for learning and training environments. Bretford's new Microbe Barrier TechnologiesT antimicrobial surface protection reduces the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi by 99.99 percent for the life of the product.
Research at the University of Arizona has found that classrooms are some of the most germ-filled public places. Teachers' workspaces are more bacteria-laden than workspaces of other professions because of the constant contact with children. This research also showed that every 60 seconds, a working adult touches as many as 30 objects, and that surfaces play a role in the transmission of bacteria. If these surfaces are not effectively cleaned, and then are touched by individuals, transfer of disease-causing microbes may occur.
