Quality Screen Protectors
Screen Protectors are widely used on display monitors, touch screens, and other electronic devices to protect screens from being damaged. Seal Shield’s high quality screen protectors are made from a thin clear Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) material that’s almost undetectable when installed. Our Screen protectors are pre-cut for an exact fit. They feature antimicrobial product protection which helps reduce microbial growth on the screen surface. They stand up to with most common hospital cleaning agents, the regular utilization of which can reduce the risk of cross-contamination and hospital acquired infections. Our solution ships with the screen protector, microfiber cloth, squeegee and application fluids for a full turn key solution.
Studies show that viruses and bacteria such as Influenza, E. Coli, Staphylococcus, Clostridium difficile colitis (C. diff) and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) can colonize on the warm surface of a screen. Germicidal wipes and medical disinfectants with dwell times are often used to kill these virulent strains. However, electronics manufactures warn against using any chemicals on their products. This is a paradox for healthcare professionals who need to safely and effectively disinfect monitors and tablets.
According to infectious disease expert Dr. Charles Gerba “We looked at touch screens in hospitals recently and found them to be heavily contaminated with organisms such as MRSA”. He went on to report “You might wipe them down quickly but I don’t think they get thoroughly decontaminated in anyway”. Infection Control Today (2012)
“Given the limitation of the damp cloth to eliminate all pathogens, especially C difficile, nonporous cases or covers for iPads and screen protectors may allow the use of disinfecting agents without directly exposing the device.” American Journal of Infection Control (2013)
