Camira ensures passengers StaySafe
Camira has announced the global launch of StaySafe, an advanced textile treatment befitting the Covid age, which reduces the potential for viral transmission from wool moquette fabrics in bus and coach interiors. When applied to a fabric, this state-of-the-art technology destroys viruses and kills bacteria – ensuring upholstery does not act as a potential source of transmission. Ideal for use on multi-occupancy seating in busy public transport settings – such as city buses, long-distance coaches, shuttle buses and minibuses – Camira StaySafe is an effective safeguard measure to help prevent the person to person spread of both viruses and bacteria.
Working in three simultaneous ways to attract, attack and ultimately destroy a virus, Camira StaySafe is a high-powered combination of silver and liposome technologies which firstly attract a virus, then attack the virus membrane, depleting it of cholesterol and allowing the silver to kill the entire virus. Independently tested to ISO 18184 and AATCC 147 and determined to reduce viral activity on wool moquette fabrics by 97%, the treatment provides an enhanced layer of protection to bus and coach interiors.
Amanda Heeley, Director of Operations and Quality, comments of the Camira StaySafe launch: “We’re extremely proud to bring this new textile treatment to our customers – the product of rigorous research and independent testing, it is a true testament to the knowledge and expertise of our team. Available on our popular plush wool moquette fabrics, Camira StaySafe provides incredibly high antiviral and anti-bacterial effectiveness and, during a time in which hygiene and health are of critical concern, this has never been more important.”
