Extra Protection for Museum visitors in Australian First

Extra Protection for Museum visitors in Australian First

Visitors to Hobart’s Mawson’s Huts Replica Museum will have an added layer of protection from COVID-19 in the form of protective sealant Hygiene+ over the summer months and moving forward.

The protective sealant, which has recently arrived in Australia, uses silver ion technology and is rolling out around the world and has a multitude of uses.

‘Hygiene+ brings an extra layer of protection for our visitors, staff and volunteers. With borders opening on the 15th of December we are extremely grateful for this timely sponsorship from Silverstream to help us remain open and as safe as possible..’ Mawson’s Huts CEO, Greg Carter said.

‘The product is a patented, one of a kind nanotechnology that combines the well known powerful sanitizing effects of Silver Ions with Quaternary Salts to form one stable active ingredient that self sanitizes the surface it is sprayed on providing ongoing 24/7 protection for up to 90 days from application.   It is third party ISO laboratory certified with regard to it’s efficacy especially around it’s ability to neutralise COVID-19 and the longevity of protection it offers.

Hard surfaces like counter tops, door handles, railings, computer / gaming screens etc can be sprayed and will self-sanitize for up to 90 days before re-application is required… it really is a game changer’ stated Rodney Rodrigues who is the Australian distributor.

The Mawson’s Huts Museum is the first Museum in Australia to use this revolutionary product, and the first organisation in Tasmania. Interest is high and more partners in the state will soon follow.
