Here at Affinity Fitness we’re aware of the new virus COVID-19, and how it’s affecting people across the glove. Although the virus hasn’t yet made its way into Christchurch, we’re taking every precaution to keep you safe. Here’s a bit of information about the product we use, and how it compares to regular cleaning products. There’s no gym safer from harmful bacteria and microbes!
Zoono’s “physical kill” replaces the need for dangerous poisons, chemicals and alcohol. This method of rupturing the cell means the cell cannot mutate, preventing the development of superbugs.
Zoono is colourless, odourless, non-leaching, environmentally safe, non-corrosive and whilst completely gentle for humans and animals, it is deadly for a wide range of bacteria and mould. Zoono does not contain harmful chemicals, as a liquid Zoono is less toxic than vitamin C and coffee.
When applied to a surface by spraying, wiping or ‘fogging’; Zoono leaves behind a mono-molecular layer that permanently bonds to the surface. These molecules are antimicrobial, silane based polymers that covalently bond to the surface forming a barrier of positively charged microscopic pins.
The positively charged microscopic pins attract and pierce negatively charged pathogens. The pins rupture the cell walls. This causes the pathogen to break up with lethal effect. The layer of molecular antimicrobial pins carries on working for up to 30 days on surfaces. Routine cleaning can continue and does not disrupt the Zoono molecule or its antimicrobial activity.
