Doncaster firm launches clothing range that can neutralise coronavirus in under two hours
A Doncaster-based tailored corporate wear supplier, Clubclass, has launched a new clothing range that can neutralise coronavirus in under two hours.
The Everyone AV.Tex Collection is treated with an antiviral technology that works by targeting the fatty chromosomes that surround viruses.
When the virus comes into contact with the treated fabric, 99.97 per cent of bacteria is inhibited and destroyed within two hours.
Recent studies suggest that the virus can live on other fabrics for up to 72 hours. The AV.Tex treatment dramatically reduces this time to under two hours, preventing coronavirus from being passed on from one person to another, limiting the spread.
Clubclass, part of the Stuncroft group, believe everyone has a responsibility to prevent the spread of coronavirus and protect colleagues, customers and loved ones.
Clubclass is the first to offer mainstream clothing with AV.Tex treatment for workers in industries such as hospitality, transport and retail; three sectors severely impacted during the pandemic. Also, unlike most clothing at this time, the garments do not need to be washed after every use.
Managing Director, Douglas Bailey said: “We recognise that clothing is a transmission route for viruses, especially when worn by those in public facing roles. Following three national lockdowns, it is the responsibility of employers to provide their staff with an extra layer of defence against coronavirus. As a Doncaster based business, we are excited to be leading the way as the first clothing company to effectively help with this duty.”
