Stamford's Very Safe UK applies antimicrobial coating at Westside Gym to help fight coronavirus
Two Stamford businesses have teamed up to help protect people from coronavirus.
Westside Gym in West Street, Stamford has had all its machines and surfaces sprayed with an antimicrobial coating which helps to provide medium-term protection against viruses and bacteria.
The coating, applied by Stamford-based Very Safe UK, dries to form a layer of 'nanospikes' that can destroy cell membranes.
Owner of Westside Gym, Simon Dale, said: "It was very important for us because at the moment, with this wretched virus, we're seeing fewer people using the gym and we'd like to get their confidence back to come in through the door.
"The process that Very Safe UK use is also used in hospitals, and puts a coating on everything which gives 90 days of protection."
Jorge Rodrigues from Very Safe UK said they were seeing a lot of demand for their antimicrobial technology from schools and businesses.
