BCCC uses innovative surface treatment to reduce pathogens
Beaufort County Community College has recently re-applied PRO-Techs for the second time in the past 3-months in an effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19. PRO-Techs is a breakthrough EPA registered instant and lasting antimicrobial surface protection nanotechnology that works 24/7 in creating a barrier shield that has a 99.9% effectiveness in preventing the growth of germs and microorganisms on both porous and non-porous surfaces, with a durability of up to 90-days.
"The College Leadership is committed to the safety, health and well-being of all its students, staff, and custodial team," said Jason Squires, Director of Campus Operations at Beaufort County Community College. "Since the start of the pandemic, we have been taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of surface and airborne pathogens. We initially applied PRO-Techs 3-months back; and the technology has helped in preventing the spread of Covid-19; which is a reason to why we have elected to apply it again to provide our students, faculty, staff and wider community the safest possible environment.”
PRO-Techs works by bonding to the surface due to its organo-silane base, and coupled with its positively charged nitrogen at the center and its 18 carbon-chain bed of “nano-swords” at the top, it prevents the growth of microorganisms and germs on any given surface. PRO-Techs Technology is also an environmentally GREEN water-based surface coating that is non-toxic and safe for use around children and pets, and it is registered under the EPA with approval for use on food surface contact; a major differentiation in the marketplace.
Beaufort County Community College has approximately 1,543 students in 12 buildings totaling more than 26 thousand sq. ft. Following its initial application, the School reapplied PRO-Techs after 90 days in order to continuously safeguard the school, its students, faculty, and staff from harmful germs. The application included all interior spaces such as classrooms, admin offices, bathrooms, cafeteria, and exterior spaces such as entrance door push bars along with sports facilities. This will support and work in conjunction with additional preventative cleaning protocols the college is already implementing.
"We are pleased that Beaufort County Community College has decided to disinfect and protect its college facilities with PRO-Techs technology to ensure the safety and well-being of its students, instructors, custodial services team and their facilities," said Danny Tawil, COO of PRO-Techs. "We look forward to continued support to the College Leadership in its ongoing commitment to protect its campus from germs, bacteria and viruses."
“PRO-Techs microbe-kill mechanism is physical, not chemical, unlike usual and customary disinfectants” said Dr. Sanford Benjamin, MD and previous Head of Infection Disease Committee at Atrium Hospitals. “The PRO-Techs kill process is electrocution at the point of microbe contact with the surface. Microbe death is instantaneous. No microbe can survive electrocution. There is no transfer of energy with electrocution, thus the kill process continues unabated for months.”
PRO-Techs is a breakthrough EPA registered instant and lasting antimicrobial surface protection nanotechnology that works 24/7 in creating a barrier shield that has a 99.9% effectiveness in preventing the growth of germs and microorganisms on both porous and non-porous surfaces, with a durability of up to 90-days. PRO-Techs Technology is an environmentally GREEN water-based surface coating that is non-toxic, non-polluting, non-leaching, non-flammable, non-allergenic, non-irritating, odorless, colorless, and safe for use around children and pets. Furthermore, PRO-Techs is registered under the EPA with approval for use on food surface contact; a major differentiation in the marketplace. When PRO-Techs is applied, it erases the microbial footprint from every person entering and leaving the premise within minutes. Visit www.protechsusa.com for more information.
