Antimicrobial Security Trays From CQRTS and Microban®

Studies have shown that airport security bins are often a hotbed for germs and bacteria. In 2015 and 2016, researchers from the University of Nottingham and the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare collected samples from frequently touched surfaces at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in Finland. Alarmingly, half of the security trays sampled tested positive for illness-causing germs, including influenza A and rhinovirus. So what does this mean for travellers?

It's no secret that security trays are handled by thousands of people every single day. What's more, cleaning protocols for these products are often insufficient and extremely difficult to maintain at high frequencies. Airports and travellers need backup.

Low-Maintenance, Long-Lasting Antimicrobial Trays

CQRTS is a specialist manufacturer of airport security trays featuring built-in Microban antimicrobial technology. Combined with regular cleaning practices, CQRTS trays help improve hygiene standards in airports and provide added product protection against bacterial growth.


How Does Microban® Technology Work in CQRTS Trays?

Microban® technology works by damaging the protein, cell membrane, DNA, and internal systems of bacteria that encounter the treated tray. The result is a product that stays hygienically cleaner in-between cleans.

Independent laboratory tests show that bacteria such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), E. coli, and Salmonella are reduced by more than 99% on the surface of CQRTS trays within 24 hours. And because Microban® technology is built-in at the stage of manufacture, the antimicrobial properties last the lifetime of the tray without requiring any specialist treatment or reapplication.
