Surfaceskins are revolutionary antibacterial push plates for doors. Each time the door is pushed open using the Surfaceskins door plate, the contact surface self-disinfects by releasing a small quantity of antibacterial solution via the micro-valved top sheet. Surfaceskins were developed in direct response to the needs of the hospital and medical sectors to fulfil a vital secondary infection control role, helping to break the chain of infection by reducing the risk of cross contamination and transmission of infections.
wear2 is a new textile process technology which allows garments to be selectively disassembled at end of life. Incorporating wear2 technology into clothing enables zips, buttons, fastenings, linings and other dis-similar materials to be easily removed without damaging the surrounding fabric. By engineering durable garments that literally “fall apart” on command, wear2 provides a unique means to recover pure fibre, reuse corporate clothing or upcycle garments.
