Antimicrobial Folder : Office product with built-in antibacterial protection to keep away germs

FolderThe average desk harbors 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. Smead has a solution to help minimize the spread of germs in the office. By teaming up with SilverCo, the company produces filing products with antimicrobial protection. Using antimicrobial technology, the antimicrobial folders are produced with Silver Zeolite, a coating that kills 99.7% of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus. Medical and scientific workers are likely exposed to a higher concentration of human pathogens than the general public. Recent testing has shown bacteria can survive on medical charts for up to three months and that over two-thirds of dental charts were positive for bacterial growth. Offices that handle food or pharmaceuticals are also at high risk. Other high-risk workplaces include areas with frequent human interaction such as schools, daycares, customer service departments, and museums.
