Trains & Public Transport

Goldshield®’s unique antimicrobial barrier technology provides unrivalled cleaning and disinfection armoury in the fight against infection

Protect Your Business Against The Rise of “Superbugs”

In a world where we are fighting a losing battle against more resistant bacteria and viruses, the need for new technology to clean and disinfect ourpublic transport environments has never been greater.

Public transport, which includes trains, buses and coaches transport millions of customers each day.  Public transport environments need to be kept clean as they can become highly contaminated from potentially harmful microbes because of the shear numbers of passengers in a relatively small environment. This means that microbes can easily be transferred through touch points such as grab rails for those standing, seating and the proximity to a number of frequently touched surfaces. The potential risk for the transmission of harmful microbes from surfaces is therefore of major concern.

Although public transport vehicles need to be kept as clean as possible for aesthetic reasons the requirement for the environment to be as safe as possible from harmful microbes and potential global pandemics is also paramount.

“Cleaning alone does not kill potentially harmful microorganisms such as Norovirus the “winter vomiting” virus, which can strike at any time”

Many normal cleaning products do not contain any form of biocide relying on physical removal of soils and microorganisms as visible cleanliness is the main objective. Even if they do contain some form of biocide, none can compete with the long-lasting effect of using Goldshield® known as our “residual protection”.

Any surface in public transport that is i  contact with passengers especially hands becomes a potential source of cross-infection. Surfaces can also become contaminated from passengers shedding microbes or those originating from respiratory infections. This contamination then poses a risk to other passengers and staff responsible for both driving and provide services to those passengers.

Goldshield®’s advanced technology contains a range of liquid products that can both clean and disinfect. Our products leave an invisible layer which is completely safe to passengers and staff but carries on killing harmful microbes for potentially days after a single application.Using Goldshield® will provide your passengers and staff with “peace of mind” that your environment is not just visibly clean but microbiologically clean as well thereby providing a safer environment for your passenger.
