Screenworks, through its burgeoning brand Bumpaa, has launched a new anti-viral gloves range.
Alongside keeping hands warm, the gloves are treated with ViralOff technology. This treatment is proven to reduce tested viruses (including the SARS-CoV-2 virus) by over 99% on the material in two hours.
Designed to protect the textiles from harbouring viruses or bacteria, ViralOff does not interfere with the skin’s natural bacterial flora and lasts for the product’s lifetime.
When the gloves are removed, if any virus or bacteria is present on the surface, it claims that 99% will be safely deactivated within a maximum of two hours. The gloves do not require regular washing. For best performance and sustainability, the products should be washed less, only when needed.
Duncan Gilmour, managing director at Screenworks, said: “Consistent wear of these antiviral gloves could help to reduce the spread of viruses, given there will be a lot less hand contact.
“Our Bumpaa range continues to go from strength to strength, and we’re delighted to be bringing this new product to market. We have worked hard to source a sleek, high-quality glove, which will be perfect for the colder weather, combining comfort, warmth and safety. They are also touchscreen ready, which means they don’t need to be taken on and off frequently – making them a practical answer to reducing the wearers exposure to the virus.
The gloves can be branded with corporate logos, with either a transfer print or embroidery on the rear of each glove.
