Wanzl Shield Master coating with Biomaster reduces SARS-COV-2

Shield Master, the coating applied to touchpoint surfaces by Wanzl, has been successfully tested to ISO standards against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.

Wanzl is the world’s leading provider of shop equipment including supermarket trolleys and baskets to global retailers. 

The company’s Shield Master coating, powered by Biomaster antimicrobial technology, can be applied to products such as door handles, hand baskets and colleague equipment within the manufacturing process or it can be added to durable ceramic-based coatings, which can be retrospectively applied to products already in service.

In independent tests, Shield Master achieved a 73% reduction of SARS-COV-2 after two hours when compared to a control sample.

Shield Master is now available and being implemented rapidly across the Wanzl supply platforms. It currently being rolled out by Asda, who are adding it into trolley handles and various other in-store equipment handled by customers. 

Biomaster antimicrobial technology is proven to provide effective product surface protection against a wide range of harmful microbes. The protection lasts for the intended lifetime of the product, providing assurance and confidence to customers and consumers.

Marc Radforth, Sales and Marketing Director of Wanzl UK & Ireland, says: “We are extremely pleased to have developed this solution with the support of Addmaster and our coating partner. 

“To make a difference to, not only our clients but the end consumer, in what are extremely difficult times for everyone is something we are very proud of.”
