It’s a well known fact that A&E departments experience some of their busiest times during the winter. As with all areas of a hospital, contamination control is essential to help prevent infection and disease.
Installation of effective dirt-trapping entrance matting is the first priority but inside hospitals, additional steps need to be taken to maintain floor cleanliness.
Supplementing the role of entrance matting, COBA’s First-Step is an economical solution to contamination control and is manufactured from an anti-microbial agent to protect against the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew.
First-Step is not best described as conventional entrance matting. The product is made up of a pad of adhesive coated disposable layers. The adhesive finish traps dirt from footwear and wheeled equipment. When a layer becomes soiled, it is simply peeled off and disposed of, to reveal and clean sheet.
It is also approved for direct food contact. First-Step is available in white, grey and blue with a pack of four pads with 30 layers. Size 0.46m x 1.17m.
