UAP has launched ‘Stop the Spread’, a campaign promoting improved infection control to coincide with the launch of its Armasmart anti-viral hardware through its newly-established division Armadillo Metal Coatings.

The coating is said to be the first on the market to eliminate 99.98% of viruses, including COVID-19. This is achieved through a patent-pending coating technology that prevents harmful microbes from accumulating on stainless steel surfaces.

The ‘Stop the spread’ campaign addresses a critical need for improved infection control. According to a WHO report, seven out of every 100 patients in acute-care hospitals, in high-income countries, acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection, with a significant percentage resulting in fatalities.

The Armasmart product line includes pull handles, push plates, door closers, kick plates, signage, bathroom turns, escutcheons, hinges and lever handles, plus bespoke products that can provide flexible solutions for door manufacturers and their clients.

UAP says its investment in Armasmart signifies a strategic move to lead the market with products that not only meet but exceed the evolving demands for health and safety. The launch of the Armasmart range is a testament to UAP’s dedication to providing innovative solutions that enhance everyday living and working environments.
