We’re more than a year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic, and cases continue to rise. With a growing number of scientists saying the coronavirus is here to stay, businesses must find ways to remain open while protecting the health and safety of their team members and customers.
Here at Specialized Tape, we want to do our part. That’s why we recently teamed up with SafeHandles™. SafeHandles is a revolutionary, self-cleaning technology that works 24/7, helping prevent the spread of viruses, germs and bacteria. The technology comes in various forms, but we just added the Ster-Roll® tape to our product lineup.
SafeHandles Ster-Roll tape is:
- EPA approved
- able to clean surfaces constantly
- easy to apply and easy to remove
- recyclable, chemical-free and non-toxic
- capable of lasting for up to six months
What’s more, the tape is antimicrobial, meaning that when it’s applied to a package or another product, it kills germs instantly.
Sounds amazing, right?
Still, you probably have a few questions, so we’ve provided an FAQ:
1.) What are SafeHandles?
SafeHandles are custom-fit heat shrink sleeves, adhesive covers and antimicrobial tapes. They’re manufactured with an EPA-approved slow-release technology made from silver. Over time, SafeHandles products release silver byproducts, eliminating potentially harmful microorganisms like viruses, fungi and bacteria. These materials can be applied to almost any service, including doorknobs, door handles, elevator buttons, railings and banisters.
2.) How long does the antimicrobial protection that SafeHandles provide last?
The antimicrobial protection that products from SafeHandles provide lasts for up to six months. Each SafeHandles material releases silver byproducts, resulting in clean surfaces and touchpoints around the clock. In high-traffic areas, like entryways or exits, you might need to apply SafeHandles more frequently. When you place an order, we can make recommendations that align with your business’s needs.
3.) How do I know it’s time to replace my SafeHandles products?
Each SafeHandles product comes with a built-in Life Span Management System™ that tells you how much usable life remains. Locate the QR code on the bottom of your SafeHandles product and scan it with your smartphone. The SafeHandles web-based app will then let you know if it’s time to upgrade or not. In addition, the SafeHandles app provides product and technical information and can even alert you when it’s time to place a new order.
4.) How do I apply SafeHandles products correctly?
If you’ve never purchased SafeHandles products before, you’re probably wondering if you can install them on your own. The answer is a resounding yes! To make sure the process is hassle-free, the team at SafeHandles provides training, instructions and over-the-phone customer support.
