Now more than ever, building design needs to be balanced with hygiene for long-lasting health and wellbeing of occupants.

Key-Guard is an antimicrobial surface coating formulated by Keystone Linings in partnership with British antimicrobial experts, Biomaster that can be applied to wall and ceiling linings as well as various surfaces to provide a protective finish and reduce bacterial transfer. Recommended for several environments where hygiene is critical including healthcare, hospitality, retail and education, Key-Guard is an excellent addition to any project, ensuring peace of mind without the need for regular cleaning.

Key-Guard antibacterial coating was recently applied to perforated Key-Nirvana ceiling panels at the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide, helping to eliminate micro-bacteria on surfaces and reduce cross-contamination in the healthcare environment.

The new Key-Guard surface coating with Biomaster technology is a hard-wearing, durable, antimicrobial polyurethane coating system available in various gloss levels with the added flexibility to be tinted in a comprehensive range of colours.

While disinfectants can keep surfaces clean and free of bacteria, their effect is, at best, temporary. The long-lasting Key-Guard coating inhibits the growth of surface bacteria, fungi and moulds round-the-clock. The Biomaster additive also contains Verimaster security technology, a covert identification system designed to verify the presence of the active antimicrobial ingredient.

Key-Guard is recommended for walls, building entrances and foyers of all high traffic areas as well as high-impact wall linings in shopping centres and hotels, childcare facilities, hospitals, theatres and studios.

The premium polyurethane coating system is independently tested to ISO 22196.

There’s never been a better time to keep your surfaces clean and free of bacteria. Get the Key-Guard protection for your building, and prevent the growth and spread of harmful germs.
