Keeping Your Guard Up

October 14, 2022 | Blog

Thanks to a barrage of Covid variants and the onset cold and flu season, now is the time to redouble FF&E cleaning and disinfection efforts. And we can help. We know a lot about the importance of proper and frequent cleaning and disinfection of seating for scientific and caregiving applications. In fact, we wrote the book on it, or protocol, to be exact, co-drafting the Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA) Laboratory Grade Seating Cleaning Protocol.

Our expertise is based on over 75 years’ of designing and manufacturing ergonomic chairs and stools for labs, hospitals, cleanrooms ‒ including today’s most advanced applications, such as BSL-4 laboratories. The result is the ability to engineer innovative, high-performance ergonomic seating designed to withstand frequent, efficient and effective cleaning and disinfecting, and recommend approved EPA cleaners and disinfectants to get the job done while protecting long-term product integrity.

Additionally, specific designs in our lab and healthcare collections feature proprietary components and construction processes developed to combat liquid, chemical and particles as well as bacteria and other microbes:

  • Models featuring vacuum-formed upholstery technique protects the seat cushioning below from bacteria and fluid infiltration
  • Wiper seal on all height-adjustable seating prevents particles from entering adjustment pneumatic mechanism while optimizing lubricant application
  • Exclusive polypropylene blend molded construction of ArmorSeat chair seats and backs contains antimicrobial properties and UV inhibitors
