The Power of Activecoat Technology

You’ll often see across our locker products that we mention anti-bacterial technology. The Probe Minibox are no different. They too have an Activecoat finish with will help combat germs and bacteria, preventing the spread and contamination of people / other items. The Activecoat finish is applied at the point of manufacture and will last the life time of the locker. It has three key elements:

  1. Prevents growth of bacteria
  2. Activecoat ions interrupt the Enzyme production – stopping the cell producing energy
  3. Interrupts the cells DNA – preventing replication
