Our products are certified to be food-safe and sterile. This makes them suitable for use in hospitals, medical practices and aged care facilities across all hygiene-critical areas such as:
- Patient/resident rooms
- Waiting areas
- Corridors and elevators
- Operating theatres
- Treatment rooms
- Wards – including ICUs and children’s wards
- Bathrooms, ensuites and other wet areas
- Kitchens and dining areas
How do our silver ion infused products stop the spread of microbes?
Silver has long been known to suppress and kill a broad range of microorganisms at a molecular level. The silver ions* infused in our antimicrobial products inhibit the growth of mould, fungi, viruses and bacteria. In areas where AM360 antimicrobial products have been used, microbes simply cannot live long enough to gain a foothold to start spreading.
The ions attack the DNA of microbes and by doing so, weaken their biological make-up. Neutralising individual microbes prevents their ability to reproduce and multiply into dangerous pathogens.
The silver ions bind to the cell wall, disrupting growth
The ions interfere with enzyme production, stopping the cell producing energy
The cell’s DNA is interrupted, preventing replication
Why AM360 products are the superior choice for health and aged care fit-outs
Robust: All of our flooring products and wall panels are infused with silver ion particles during the manufacturing process, as opposed to the formulation being coated on as a last step. This means that our products will continue to provide protection against the spread of microbes even when knocked, dented, stained or scratched for the lifetime of the product as the silver ion additive goes all the way through the body of the product, not just the surface. AM360 products are ideal for use in wet or dry areas and especially suited to high-traffic areas, acting as a protective buffer against trolleys, wheelchairs, beds and other equipment.
Aesthetically Pleasing: You don’t have to sacrifice looks to achieve infection control in hygiene critical environments. We offer a wide range of colours so walls and floors will blend in with the interior design of any room or area. AM360 also has the capability to print specific designs on wall panelling to enhance the design concept with the appropriate pictorial or graphic that compliments the environmental theme and atmosphere, such as a calming forest landscape for the waiting room of a medical facility or a mural of friendly cartoon characters for a children’s ward.
Eco-Friendly: Our sheeting and flooring products are made from unplasticised PVC (uPVC) and are also BPA-free. This makes them recyclable and therefore a sustainable choice.
Proven to Work: Materials sourced by AM360 meet AUS, UK, EU and US hygiene requirements and our ranges have proven track records in use around the world. Independent lab testing* has shown the effectiveness of silver-ions against the Top Ten most common pathogens or ‘superbugs’ which can be found in just about every public environment.
*In an independent lab test, 10 common microbes were selected, and each of them was incubated on a leading brand of antimicrobial wall panels for 24hrs at 98.6 °F and >90 RH.
Backed by Experts: Our dedicated team have decades of experience working alongside architects, builders and facility managers to ensure that specified hygiene control measures are achieved during fit-outs. As independent suppliers, we have a high level of flexibility in sourcing materials from different manufacturers to meet the individual needs of your project.
Reduced risk of infection: Antimicrobial products are designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microbes. This means that they can help reduce the risk of infection in areas where people come into contact with surfaces frequently, such as hospitals, schools, and public transportation.
Increased safety: Antimicrobial products can help keep people safe by reducing the spread of illness and disease. This is particularly important in areas where vulnerable populations, such as the elderly or immunocompromised, are present.
Enhanced hygiene: Antimicrobial products can help maintain a higher level of cleanliness and hygiene in areas where people come into contact with surfaces frequently. This can help prevent the spread of germs and reduce the risk of illness.
Longer-lasting protection: Antimicrobial products are designed to provide longer-lasting protection against harmful microbes. This means that they can help reduce the need for frequent cleaning and disinfection, which can save time and money in the long run.
*Please note that all our products contain ionic silver, unlike other products on the market which contain nano silver. According to researchers at Rice University, in order for silver to be effective in killing bacteria, it has to be in its ionised form. Nano silver is therefore benign in the presence of microbes.
