EN14476 – What’s the big deal?

These days there literally countless options when it comes to PPE and hygiene supplies. So how do you decide what works and what doesn’t when it comes to fighting Covid-19?

 

It Starts With Standards

It’s very important to make sure your hygiene and sanitising products are properly tested.
You don’t have to look far to find nightmare stories about companies importing container loads of inferior products only to find they are ineffective against the virus and, in some cases, dangerous.
EN standards are the recognised European standards for disinfection products, and products have to go through many tests to gain certification.

 

What Is EN14476?

This European standard is often referred to these days as ‘the Coronavirus test’.
Simply put, Covid-19 (or Coronavirus disease) is a disease caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2.
If a hygiene product conforms to EN14476, it means it is certified to kill
SARS-CoV-2, thus providing an effective weapon in the fight against Covid-19.

 

How Uniwipe Can Help

Our suite of industrial cleaning wipes are some of the best in the world. The Uniwipe Clinical Midi wipes are certified to EN14476 to kill SARS-CoV-2.

They’re certified to kill 99.999% of bacteria within 30 seconds, and SARS-CoV-2 in 60 seconds. Impressive.

 

 

It’s Important To Be Vigilant

With the massive increase in demand of antibacterial products this year, there have been hundreds of companies and start-ups importing hygiene products into the UK.
In many cases, these products have not been thoroughly researched or tested, and are often vastly inferior to established brands who have been working in the medical industry for years.
At Uniwipe, we take pride in the fact that our very reason for being is founded on quality, and Great British manufacturing.
